CHICAGO, July 20 (UPI) -- Jimmy Rollins homered twice and Vance Worley stifled the Cubs for eight innings Wednesday in the Philadelphia Phillies' 9-1 victory over Chicago.

Rollins cracked two solo shots and added an RBI double that triggered a three-run second inning for the Phillies, who took the rubber match of a three-game set at Wrigley Field and improved to 27-21 on the road.

Chase Utley contributed a pair of run-scoring doubles and Michael Martinez added an RBI for first-place Philadelphia.

Worley (6-1) won his fourth straight start and stretched his personal unbeaten streak to six games with the victory, in which he limited the Cubs to one run on four hits, walking two and striking out seven.

Cubs starter Ryan Dempster (7-7), meanwhile, lasted only three innings, surrendering six runs on seven hits.
