    Matt Garza pitched one-hit ball for seven shutout innings and struck out 10 Sunday as the Chicago Cubs beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-1.
     
    Garza (2-1) gave up a pop-fly single to Jimmy Rollins leading off the first and nothing more.
     
    Garza retired 20 of the next 21 batters, with Juan Pierre's seventh-inning walk accounting for the only other baserunner.

    After reliever Rafael Dolis pitched a perfect eighth, Cubs closer Carlos Marmol was shaky in the ninth.
     
    Marmol walked a pair and Hunter Pence's infield single with two outs loaded the bases. Marmol then walked Ty Wigginton to force home a run before getting Shane Victorino on a game-ending groundout.
