Cubs Hit 3 Homers, Beat Braves 5-1
ATLANTA (AP) -- Bryan LaHair, Jeff Baker and Anthony Rizzo hit home runs and the Chicago Cubs continued their success against Atlanta by beating the Braves 5-1 on Wednesday night.

Paul Maholm (6-6) gave up one run on eight hits in six innings.

The Cubs have won two of the first three games in the four-game series after winning two of three in Chicago on May 7-9.

The Braves, third in the NL East, fell 6 games behind first-place Washington.

Rizzo's homer off Anthony Varvaro in the eighth was his second of the series and third overall since his recall from Triple-A Iowa on June 26.

Randall Delgado (4-9) allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks in six-plus innings. He has lost four straight decisions.
