PITTSBURGH, July 24 (UPI) -- Former Pirate Paul Maholm shut down his ex-teammates on one run over eight innings Tuesday, staking the Chicago Cubs to a 5-1 win over Pittsburgh.

Maholm (9-6), who had spent his entire seven-season career with the Pirates before signing with the Cubs as a free agent in January, yielded four hits and struck out seven with one walk in his second appearance against his former team.

The left-hander registered a no-decision in a 3-2 Cubs loss to Pittsburgh May 26.

David DeJesus delivered a two-run double in the fifth inning to put Chicago ahead. Starlin Castro and Alfonso Soriano homered for the Cubs, who clinched their three-game series.

Bucs starter James McDonald (10-4) absorbed the loss, giving up five runs on five hits in a six-inning effort.

Garrett Jones homered to provide the only run for the second-place Pirates, who came into the contest trailing National League Central-leading Cincinnati by 1 1/2 games.
