Phillies Edge Cubs
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Darin Ruf and Chase Utley sparked a three-run fifth inning to lift the Philadelphia Phillies to a 9-8 win over the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday night.

Utley, who had three hits, drove in the tying run on a triple to deep center field. He soon scored on a Domonic Brown ground out to give the Phillies the lead. Ruf added one more on a solo home run, his fourth of the season.

Philadelphia tagged Edwin Jackson (7-12) for seven runs and 10 hits in six innings.

Trailing 9-5 in the ninth, the Cubs scored three runs off Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon before pinch-hitter Thomas Neal flew out with men on the corners to end it.

Kyle Kendrick (10-8) allowed five runs and six hits in six innings. He also had an RBI single.
