Cubs get nothing going
Phillies 6, Cubs 2
Aramis Ramirez went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in the finale. (Rusty Kennedy/AP)
Starter Les Walrond walked five, fanned six and lasted just three-plus innings, while the Cubs were limited offensively and lost the series. Scott Moore's RBI single and Aramis Ramirez's groundout accounted for the Cubs' scoring, while the bullpen couldn't hold Philly in check.
