Cubs Win 6-4 Over Diamondbacks

Phoenix, AZ (Sports Network) – Aramis Ramirez belted a pair of two-run homers, and the Chicago Cubs secured back-to-back road wins for the first time since late May with a 6-4 decision over the Arizona Diamondbacks in the middle installment of a three-game series.

Ramirez, who came into Tuesday hitting .178, went deep off starter Barry Enright in the sixth inning and Aaron Heilman in the eighth as the Cubs posted consecutive victories for the first time since June 16-17 vs. Oakland. They hadn’t won two in a row on the road since May 22-23 against Texas.

Kosuke Fukudome hit a solo homer for the Cubs, who moved to 9-2 against National League West competition this season. Chicago is 28-45 against all other foes. Tuesday’s result also gave the Cubs their first series win at Chase Field since August 22-24, 2003 when the club won two of three games.

Carlos Silva (9-2) gave up four hits and a pair of runs over six innings to snap a four-start winless skid. He’s 5-0 on the road this season. Carlos Marmol pitched the final 1 2/3 innings for his 16th save.

Kelly Johnson homered for the Diamondbacks, who lost their fourth in a row. Enright (1-1) was charged with seven hits and three runs over 5 2/3 innings in his second major league appearance.
