Burrell, Werth power Phillies over first-place Cubs

CBS SportsLine.com wire reports

CHICAGO -- Kyle Lohse took Jacque Jones' line drive off his right forearm, picked up the ball and threw to first to retire the side. It was his final play in his first game with the Phillies.

"It was a big out. I was trying to stay in front of the ball. I just got unlucky where it hit me," Lohse said.

Lohse, with his forearm swollen and bruised, had to leave after one inning. But his debut with Philadelphia wasn't a total disaster, despite his opening difficulties.

Pat Burrell homered and Jayson Werth had four RBI as the Phillies built a six-run lead and held on Thursday for a 10-6 victory.

"Just the way it welted up right away, I knew they weren't going to let me go out there and chance it," said Lohse, acquired from Cincinnati on Monday. "We'll see how it goes. I don't think it's serious enough for the DL, but it was pretty bad."

Philadelphia had three-run rallies in the second and third and drove out Cubs starter Sean Marshall (5-5) after 2 2/3 innings. The Phillies added three more in the ninth.

Marshall had problems of his own. He scratched his right eye Wednesday night and after he gave up seven runs and nine hits, he immediately went to see an eye specialist.

"I don't know what his problem was. He was getting the ball up some," Cubs manager Lou Piniella said. "I know he scratched his cornea last night sleeping. I'm not so sure that had anything to do with it, but it might have."

A day after the Cubs took over first place in the NL Central, Milwaukee lost again to the New York Mets, keeping Chicago ahead of the second-place Brewers by a percentage point.

The Phillies stayed four games behind the Mets in the NL East. J.D. Durbin (4-2), who pitched three innings after replacing Lohse, got the win, even though he gave up three runs and five hits.

"I got the win?" Durbin said. "They said get up and start throwing. I was like, 'Why?' Then they said, 'You're in.' I said, 'Shoot, Lohse must be hurt.'"

Chicago cut the lead to one in the eighth when Alfonso Soriano doubled for his third hit and scored on Ryan Theriot's RBI single off Tom Gordon. Aramis Ramirez walked with two outs to put two on before pinch-hitter Mark DeRosa flied out.

Pinch-hitter Carlos Ruiz had an RBI double in the ninth and Werth followed with a two-run double off Will Ohman, Philadelphia's fourth hit of the inning.

"They stopped us after three innings. They kept coming at us, they were gaining on us, but then we got that three spot on in the ninth," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said.

As a defensive replacement in the ninth inning Wednesday, Werth couldn't hold on to the ball as he made a diving attempt in left field on a play that went for a double to start the Cubs' winning rally.

On Thursday, his second day off the DL, Werth batted leadoff and had six at-bats, three hits and his four RBI. Burrell also had three of the Phillies 16 hits, extending his hitting streak to 11 games.

"I definitely wasn't expecting go out and have the day I did," said Werth, who had three at-bats by the third inning.

Burrell led off the second with a high drive to center and on a humid 87-degree day, and it carried over the wall for his 15th homer and a 2-1 lead.

Wes Helms followed with a double, Chris Coste singled and pitcher Adam Eaton, pinch hitting for Lohse, walked to load the bases. Jayson Werth then hit an RBI single and Tadahito Iguchi had a sacrifice fly to make it 4-1.

Burrell had a one-out single in the third, Helms hit another double and the Phillies got two more runs on Coste's RBI infield single and an error. Theriot, the Cubs' shortstop, made a nice stop on Coste's ball, but his throw to first bounded away from Derrek Lee for an error, allowing Helms to score and make it 6-1. Werth greeted reliever Rocky Cherry with an RBI double for a six-run cushion.

The Cubs got two runs back in the third off Durbin on Mike Fontenot's RBI double and a run-scoring infield single by Jones, both with two outs. Lee had a two-out RBI double in the fourth to make it a three-run game, and pinch-hitter Matt Murton delivered another two-out, run-scoring hit, a single in the fifth off Geoff Geary to cut it to 7-5.

Lohse started shakily and was wild. With two outs, Lee doubled before Lohse hit Ramirez and Cliff Floyd with pitches and walked Fontenot, forcing in a run. Jones then sent a liner through the box that hit Lohse, who picked up the ball and threw him out to end the inning.

Ryan Howard hit a two-out RBI single in the first after Rollins doubled to make it 1-0.


  • Lohse threw 29 pitches in his only inning.
  • Burrell is now 33-for-69 in his last 23 games with six homers.
  • The series drew 163,727, a four-game record for Wrigley Field that topped the 161,374 who attended last month's series against the Giants.
