Worley Dominates as Phillies Beat Cubs 9-1
CHICAGO (AP)--Vance Worley dominated over eight innings, Jimmy Rollins homered from both sides of the plate and the Philadelphia Phillies pounded Ryan Dempster and the Chicago Cubs 9-1 on a scorching Wednesday at Wrigley Field.

It was another standout performance by Worley (6-1), who won his fourth straight start and continues to give the Phillies all they could ask for with Roy Oswalt and Joe Blanton injured.

The 23-year-old right-hander allowed one run and four hits while striking out seven and walking two, and he got all the support he needed.

Rollins hit solo shots batting left-handed off Ramon Ortiz in the sixth and from the right side against John Grabow in the eighth.

Dempster (7-7) lasted just three innings, giving up six runs and seven hits.
