Wells, Fukudome Lead Cubs Over Giants
CHICAGO (AP) -- Randy Wells pitched 7 2-3 innings and Kosuke Fukudome homered to lead the Chicago Cubs to a 2-0 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday night.

Leading San Diego by a half-game in the NL West and Colorado by 2{ coming in, the Giants were shut out for the fourth time in their last five losses. It was the eighth time in 11 games they scored two runs or fewer.

The Cubs have won seven of their last eight games, the lone loss 1-0 on Tuesday to the Giants on Buster Posey's home run.

After Wells walked Travis Ishikawa and allowed a double to Cody Ross with two outs in the eighth, Cubs closer Carlos Marmol struck out Freddy Sanchez to end the inning. Marmol struck out the side in the ninth for his 34th save in 39 chances.
