Barney made two mistakes in the fifth that cost Chicago, which leads the majors with 110 errors.

He failed to touch first base on a sacrifice bunt by Nyjer Morgan, then his throw over the head of third baseman Aramis Ramirez allowed Corey Hart and Braun to score.

Brewers starter Randy Wolf (11-8) allowed a leadoff homer to Starlin Castro before winning his fifth straight.
