Chicago 4 @ Philadelphia 5
Chicago jumped off to an early lead on a third-inning solo home run by Cody Ransom. Rizzo made it two to nothing on a solo shot in the fourth. Ransom scored for the second time, doubling in the fifth, getting sacrificed to second and riding home from third on a single by Castro.
The Phillies cut into the lead in the bottom of the inning on a lead-off double by Lance Nix and a home run by John Mayberry, batting eighth.
Alfonzo Soriano and Carlos Ruiz exchanged six-inning home runs, giving the Cubs a 4-3 lead to protect.
Kevin Gregg came in to pitch the seventh, replacing Jackson, who gave up seven hits in his six innings of work. Gregg promptly walked pinch-hitter Dominic Brown. After a sacrifice by Revere, Jimmy Rollins sent Brown to third with a sharp single to left.
Chase Utley finished Gregg and the Cubs with a double over the head of Cubs' center fielder Scott Hairston. Camp came in a struck out Ruiz and induced Delmon Young to hit his fourth fly ball to left field.
Chad Durbin retired the side in order in the eighth and Jon Papelbon came in for the ninth, giving up a lead-off single to Rizzo. He proceeded to strike out Dave Sappelt, Donier Navarro and Cody Ransom to end it.
