Murphy's Homer in 9th Lifts Cubs Past Phillies 5-2
PHILADELPHIA (AP)--Donnie Murphy hit a tiebreaking three-run shot in the ninth inning for his second homer of the game, lifting the Chicago Cubs to a 5-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night.

Murphy drove a 3-1 pitch from Justin De Fratus deep into the left field seats for his third homer in two games. He also had a solo shot in the third.

Luis Garcia (0-1) took the loss.

Pedro Strop (2-1) tossed a scoreless eighth for the win and Kevin Gregg worked the ninth for his 23rd save.
