Cubs Blank Braves; Avoid Sweep in Atlanta
ATLANTA (AP)-- Randy Wells pitched six scoreless innings, Carlos Marmol stranded two baserunners in the ninth inning and the Chicago Cubs beat the Atlanta Braves 2-0 Thursday night.

Rookie Tyler Colvin and Marlon Byrd homered for Chicago, which had only four hits.

Wells, who combined with four relievers on the eight-hit shutout, outpitched Tommy Hanson in a matchup of top 2009 rookies. The Cubs avoided a three-game sweep.

Atlanta's Chipper Jones left the game after the third inning with a sore right side and is listed as day to day.

John Grabow, who gave up Jones' two-run homer in the eighth inning of the Braves' 3-2 win on Wednesday night, was called on in the eighth again.
