Utley, Lee Lead Phillies to 7-1 Win Over Cubs
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Chase Utley homered and drove in four runs to back Cliff Lee's eight strong innings and lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 7-1 win over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday.

Lee (6-5) passed teammate Roy Halladay for the league lead in strikeouts, recording seven to up his season total to 107. He allowed four hits and one run while walking two.

Utley gave Philadelphia the early lead with a two-run double in the first and provided some insurance with a two-run homer in the eighth. Shane Victorino had three hits, scored three runs and drove in one for Philadelphia, which has won three of four.

Ryan Howard and Raul Ibanez also had RBIs for Philadelphia.
