Sharp Silva Stays Unbeaten, Leads Cubs Over Cards -- GAME 3 SUNDAY ON WGIL
CHICAGO (AP) -- Carlos Silva won again, striking out a career-high 11 during seven dominant innings and pitching the Chicago Cubs past the St. Louis Cardinals 5-0 Saturday.

Silva (7-0) allowed just two hits and walked none. Matt Holliday was the only Cardinals' batter to reach base against Silva with a single in the second and a double in the seventh.

Mike Fontenot, playing for the injured Aramis Ramirez, hit a pair of triples. He also got hit by Cardinals reliever Blake Hawksworth in the eighth inning.
