|Volstad Bounces Back Rough 1st, Cubs Lose
|PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- If Chris Volstad could erase the first inning, his winless streak would be over.
Placido Polanco hit a tiebreaking, two-run double in the eighth inning to lift the Philadelphia Phillies to a 6-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Monday night.
Bryan LaHair hit a tying, two-run homer off Chad Qualls (1-0) in the eighth after Vance Worley threw seven impressive innings for Philadelphia.
But the Phillies answered in the bottom half.
Volstad gave up four runs, all in the first, and eight hits in six innings to remain winless since July 10, 2011. He is 0-8 in 16 starts since his last win when he was with the Marlins.
