Phillies Get Late-Inning Offense to Beat Cubs

Placido Polanco hit a tiebreaking, two-run double in the eighth inning to lift the Philadelphia Phillies to a 6-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Monday night.

Bryan LaHair hit a tying, two-run homer off Chad Qualls (1-0) in the eighth after Vance Worley threw seven impressive innings for Philadelphia.

But the Phillies answered in the bottom half. Scott Maine (0-1) hit pinch-hitter Juan Pierre with a one-out pitch and Jimmy Rollins singled off Rafael Dolis with two outs.

Polanco, who had just two RBIs in his first 71 at-bats, drove in two with a hard liner to the wall in left.

Jonathan Papelbon pitched the ninth for his eighth save in as many tries.
