The Cubs got all four of their runs in the bottom of the fifth, starting with a solo shot from Soriano. Luis Valbuena brought home a run later with a sacrifice fly, and Reed Johnson capped the scoring with a two-run single.

That was enough support for Maholm, who gave up one run on five hits in his eight innings of work; he struck out four and walked one. Carlos Marmol finished things up and earned the save, though he did give up a run.
