Wells Pitches Cubs Past Cardinals
CHICAGO (AP) -- Alfonso Soriano hit a two-run homer and Randy Wells pitched seven shutout innings to lead the Chicago Cubs to a 5-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday.

Tyler Colvin and Geovany Soto added solo shots for the Cubs, who trail first-place St. Louis by 10 games in the NL Central.

The Cardinals failed to get a run for the second straight day after outscoring opponents 46-17 during an eight-game winning streak. Albert Pujols was hitless in eight at-bats in the two losses, both coming in uncomfortably hot, humid conditions.

Wells (5-7) allowed five hits -- one single in each of the second through sixth innings -- and struck out seven.
