Rookie Wells Wins 10th for Cubs
CHICAGO (AP) -- Randy Wells became the first Cubs rookie in 11 years to reach 10 wins with another strong outing against the Houston Astros, and Milton Bradley homered in Chicago's 4-1 victory Tuesday night.

In his previous two starts against Houston, Wells (10-7) pitched 14 scoreless innings. On Tuesday, he allowed just one unearned run and seven hits in 6 2-3 innings, striking out four and walking two.

Kerry Wood was the last Cubs rookie to win 10 games, in 1998. Wells is Chicago's first 10-game winner this season.

Cubs reliever John Grabow and Kevin Gregg each got two outs and closer Carlos Marmol pitched a scoreless ninth for his seventh save in 11 chances.
