Thursday Wisconsin Sports UPDATE

Here is the latest Wisconsin sports from The AP

CHICAGO (AP) -- Ben Sheets came off the disabled list and to the rescue for the Milwaukee Brewers in Chicago Wednesday night. Sheets worked six innings, allowing just one run in a 6-1 win over the Cubs. Ryan Braun hit a bases-loaded double in the seventh inning for Milwaukee. Geoff Jenkins followed Braun with a two-run single, as the Brewers snapped a five-game losing streak and moved within a game and a half of the first-place Cubs in the division race.

CHICAGO (AP) -- The Brewers face the Cubs again tonight at Wrigley Field with the chance to win their three-game series and move closer to first place in the Central Division of the National League. With Wednesday night's win, the Brewers moved back into second place, a game and a half behind.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers wind up their preseason schedule Thursday by facing the Tennessee Titans in Nashville. It's another classic matchup of quarterbacks, with Packers veteran Brett Favre going against Offensive Rookie of the Year Vince Young of the Titans. But don't expect to see Favre play more than the first two or three series as he tries to get in better sync with his team's new receivers.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Milwaukee Bucks fans are feeling energized today after learning the team will have its top draft pick after all. The doubts that 6-foot-11 Yi Jianlian (EE jee-AHN-lee-AHN) from China would play for the Bucks were wiped out with the announcement in Hong Kong early yesterday that a deal had been made.
