Starlin Castro hit a tiebreaking homer in the sixth to lead the Chicago Cubs to a 4-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday.
Cole Gillespie drove in two runs with a single and a sacrifice fly as the Cubs earned their fourth win in 20 home games since the All-Star break.
Castro, Junior Lake, Wellington Castillo and Darwin Barney had two hits apiece.
Castro drove a 1-0 fastball from Zach Miner (0-1) to the center field batter's eye for his eighth homer.
The leadoff drive through a steady wind was his first homer since July 31 against Milwaukee.
