Rox lose at Wrigley in 11

CHICAGO (AP) - Aramis Ramirez hit a two-run homer in the 11th inning, his first home run in more than a month, lifting the Chicago Cubs to a 4-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Monday night.

Starlin Castro opened the 11th with his third hit of the game, a single off Matt Belisle (1-1). After Derrek Lee lined out, Ramirez lined a 1-0 pitch through a stiff wind into the left-field bleachers.

Ramirez, who also drove in Chicago's first run with a first-inning single, has been in a season-long slump. Even after the two-hit game, he is batting only .175. He hadn't homered since April 15.
