Castro, Cubs top Phillies

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Starlin Castro's go-ahead home run in the bottom of the sixth inning lifted the Chicago Cubs to a 4-3 win over the Philadelphia Phillies in the middle test of a three-game set.

Tied at 3-3 in the sixth and with Zach Miner (0-1) pitching for Philadelphia, the leadoff man Castro hammered a 1-0 fastball to center to give Chicago the lead for good.

Carlos Villanueva (3-8) threw 1 1/3 scoreless innings of relief to pick up the win while Kevin Gregg worked around a two-out single in the ninth to notch his 28th save.
