Maholm, Castro Lead Cubs to 5-1 Win Over Phillies
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Paul Maholm pitched 6 1-3 solid innings, Starlin Castro had two hits and an RBI, and the Chicago Cubs beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-1 Friday night.

Ty Wigginton homered for Philadelphia, which has scored two runs or less in 11 of 20 games.

Rafael Dolis pitched two scoreless innings for his first major-league save.
