Wells Pitches Cubs to Victory Over Arizona
CHICAGO (AP) -- Randy Wells allowed three hits in seven strong innings and struck out a career-high 10, helping the Chicago Cubs beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-0 Saturday afternoon.

Wells (12-10) gave up a leadoff double to Stephen Drew and then retired 14 straight before Eric Byrnes hit a two-out single in the fifth. Wells' 12 wins are the most by a Cubs rookie since Kerry Wood had 13 victories in 1998.

Chicago broke a scoreless tie with three runs off Daniel Cabrera in the fourth.

Aramis Ramirez walked, Jeff Baker doubled past first for the Cubs' second hit, Reed Johnson hit a two-run triple to right center and Geovany Soto followed with an RBI double.

Cabrera (0-6), winless in his nine starts this season, gave up four hits and three runs with three walks in five innings.
