Recap


Cubs 5, Phillies 1
: Paul Maholm pitched 6 1/3 strong innings to outduel Roy Halladay and Tony Campana scored a pair of runs as visiting Chicago picked up its third win in the last four games.

Starlin Castro chipped in two hits and an RBI and Alfonso Soriano added an RBI for the Cubs.

The Phillies did not get to Maholm (2-2) until the seventh, when Ty Wigginton blasted a homer to deep left. That ended the night for the left-hander, who ended up surrendering five hits and striking out one while not walking a batter.

Chicago broke through against Halladay in the fourth, when Campana reached on a bunt single and stole second base. Castro followed and reached out for a 3-2 breaking ball off the plate, flipping it into right field to plate Campana.

Chicago struck again in the sixth, again sparked by a single from Campana. Bryan LaHair’s one-out single moved Campana up and Soriano and Stewart followed with back-to-back RBI hits.

Halladay (3-2) lasted seven innings and was charged with three runs and six hits while striking out five and walking a pair. He has received a total of two runs of support in his two losses.
