Ramirez's 2 HR's Help Silva, Cubs Beat D-Backs
PHOENIX (AP) -- Aramis Ramirez homered twice, Carlos Silva earned his first victory in five starts and the Chicago Cubs beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-4 on Tuesday night to clinch their first road series in 1 month.

Ramirez, hitting .178 going into the game, had his first two-home run game since Aug. 23, 2008. He has 22 multi-homer games in his career.

Kosuke Fukudome also homered for Chicago as the Cubs won their first road series since taking two of three at Texas May 21-23. They had lost five straight series overall. Chicago can complete just its second three-game sweep of the season with a win on Wednesday night.

Silva (9-2) allowed two runs on four hits through six innings.
