    Clement pitches third complete game this year

    CHICAGO (AP) -- Matt Clement didn't have his best stuff, not that it mattered.


    Clement pitched his third complete game of the season and Alex Gonzalez and Todd Hundley each hit a three-run homer as the Chicago Cubs beat the Milwaukee Brewers 10-1 on Tuesday night.

    Clement (12-9) struck out seven and walked three. He has won his last three starts and two of them have been complete games.

    "I pitched without my slider for the first four innings,'' Clement said. "I basically never found a rhythm on it.''

    Cubs interim manager Bruce Kimm didn't see any fatigue in Clement.

    "He had 104 pitches, but he is in great shape and can throw 120 pitches,'' Kimm said. "I didn't want him to go over 105 because it is a long season, but I thought he handled everything pretty good.''

    Lenny Harris drove in the Brewers' only run on a fielder's choice in the fourth inning.

    "This guy is getting better and better,'' Brewers manager Jerry Royster said. "He couldn't get it together early tonight, couldn't locate his pitches and we got some hits, but once he got it together he was tough. He's as good as anyone right now.''

    Fred McGriff walked in the third inning and Jim Rushford, making his major league debut, dropped Moises Alou's fly ball in left field. Gonzalez followed by hitting his 15th home run of the year to make it 4-0.

    In the fifth, Alou singled off of Brewers' reliever Jose Cabrera. After walking Bill Mueller, Cabrera gave up a three-run homer to Hundley on a full count, giving the Cubs a 7-1 lead.

    McGriff tripled in the sixth, scoring Sammy Sosa. Alou followed with a double to make it 9-1.

    Mark Bellhorn added a run in the seventh with his 25th homer.

    Dave Pember (0-1) pitched 3 2/3 innings in his major league debut, giving up three earned runs.
