    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — One of the hottest pitchers in baseball was at his best early on Roger Clemens Jersey , yet the Cubs‘ high-powered hitters didn’t get discouraged.Javier Baez hit one of three solo home runs off Cy Young contender Aaron Nola to reach 30 home runs and 100 RBIs, and Jon Lester pitched six shutout innings to continue his mastery of the Phillies in NL Central-leading Chicago’s 8-1 victory over Philadelphia on Sunday.Daniel Murphy and Anthony Rizzo also went deep off Nola (15-4), who gave up three home runs in a game for the second time over 88 starts in his four-year career.Murphy’s homer was a game changer. Nola fanned seven of the first nine hitters before Murphy’s two-out shot to right field in the third inning gave Chicago a 1-0 lead.“It can really lead to a frustrating dugout,” Lester said of the early struggles, “but you didn’t hear it or see it.”Murphy looked bad while weakly fouling off the previous two pitches before launching a 1-2, 94-mph fastball into the seats“We just grind out at-bats,” Murphy said. “We really made Aaron work today.”Chicago, which has won 10 of 12, leads the Cardinals by 5 ½ games.“We’ve been playing as well as we’ve played all year the last two weeks,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. “The guys have been doing wonderfully and it’s impressive.”Lester (15-5) surrendered eight hits, struck out seven and walked none while improving to 8-0 with a 1.49 ERA in 10 career regular-season starts against the Phillies.The Phillies began the day three games back of Atlanta, which hosted Pittsburgh on Sunday night. Jorge Alfaro had two hits, including an RBI double in the ninth, for Philadelphia.“That’s just an incredible offense, and today they just won,” Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said. “I think that’s the long and short of it.”Kapler moved Nola up a day to give him another start at home Andrew Benintendi Jersey , where the star right-hander has been dominant. It backfired. Nola gave up four runs on five hits in 5 2/3 innings with 11 strikeouts and two walks.“Every loss right now hurts as a team, but I’m going to put this one behind me,” Nola said.Rizzo led off the fourth by hitting an 0-1, 85 mph changeup over the wall in left, and Baez, the league leader in RBIs entering Sunday, hit a 1-2 fastball out to left in the sixth.Nola also gave up an RBI triple to Kyle Schwarber in the sixth to snap a string of 17 straight home starts allowing three runs or less. He dropped to 9-1 at home, where his ERA rose from 1.94 to 2.21. Nola’s overall ERA increased from 2.10 to 2.23.The other top contenders for the NL Cy Young, Washington’s Max Scherzer and the Mets’ Jacob deGrom, will pitch on Monday.NOT HIS DAYNola continued to struggle on Sept. 2. The right-hander has allowed multiple homers in a game 10 times, including all three starts he has made on Sept. 2 (2018, 2017 and 2015). Overall, Nola has a 9.82 ERA on Sept. 2 while allowing 24 hits, including seven homers, over 14 2/3 innings.NOLA’S NEMESISMurphy is batting .345 (10 for 29) with two homers and six RBIs against Nola.CARDS ALLOWEDMajor League Baseball has told teams that it’s OK for pitchers to use the kind of scouting cards that umpire Joe West confiscated from Philadelphia reliever Austin Davis on the mound Saturday.Kapler said Sunday that he’d been informed the cards were legal. They are, provided they don’t delay games Luis Tiant Jersey , MLB told clubs in clarifying the policy.GREAT COMPANYThe 25-year-old Baez became the fifth Cubs player to reach 30 homers and 100 RBIs in a season before age 25 or during the year reaching that age, joining Ernie Banks, Kris Bryant, Rizzo and Ron Santo.TRAINER’S ROOMPhillies: 1B Justin Bour, out since Aug. 23 with a left oblique strain, was activated from the DL.UP NEXTCubs: LHP Cole Hamels (9-9, 3.70) looks to remain perfect with the Cubs on Monday afternoon in Milwaukee, where he faces RHP Zach Davies (2-5, 5.23). Hamels is 4-0 with a 0.69 ERA in six starts since being traded to Chicago from Texas.Phillies: Begin six-game road trip with a three-game set at Miami on Monday afternoon, with RHP Vince Velasquez (9-9, 4.05) opposing Marlins RHP Jose Urena (4-12, 4.56). CHICAGO (AP) — The rebuilding Chicago White Sox caught a glimpse of their future the last two days.Adam Engel broke a tie with a two-run homer in a five-run fifth, Carlos Rodon continued his torrid stretch with six strong innings and the White Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 7-3 on Wednesday.Rodon’s performance came one day after prized prospect Michael Kopech pitched two scoreless innings in his big league debut. Together, they project to be the cornerstones of a young rotation on the come.“Yeah, it’s definitely fun to see some new faces,” said Rodon , who allowed three hits and three walks and struck out five. “Last night was pretty exciting, pretty loud out there — the loudest it has been in awhile.”“It’s extremely exciting,” said bench coach Joe McEwing, who filled in for Manager Rick Renteria for the third straight game. “When you have pitchers that have plus-plus stuff, and even if they’re having a tough outing, they’re able to fight through it because of their stuff … As they continue to grow, they’ll continue to get to that level.”Nicky Delmonico and Tim Anderson also homered off Twins starter Kyle Gibson (7-10), helping send him to only his second loss in seven career decisions at Guaranteed Rate Field.Chicago won for the sixth time in eight games.“We’ve picked it up offensively and our pitching has been really good,” said Delmonico, who homered in four of the last six games. “We’ve been playing good defense, so it’s all clicking right now.”The White Sox sent 11 batters to the plate against Gibson and Gabriel Moya in the fifth to snap a 2-2 tie.Omar Narvaez drew a walk before Engel hit an 0-2 fastball over the left-field fence. Yolmer Sanchez followed with a walk and advanced to second on Avisail Garcia’s one-out single. Sanchez scored when second baseman Logan Forsythe couldn’t handle Daniel Palka’s hard grounder that was ruled an error. Delmonico was walked intentionally, and Matt Davidson hit a two-run single that knocked Gibson out of the game. The right-hander gave up seven runs (four earned) on seven hits and four walks in 4 2/3 innings.“In that situation, I had (Engel) 0-2, but I was really thinking I had a chance to get a double play there and get out of trouble pretty quickly,” Gibson said. “I just threw one too many sinkers in.”Rodon (5-3) allowed four of the first five batters to reach base before he settled down. He is 5-1 with a 2.31 ERA over his last 10 starts.Xavier Cedeno, Juan Minaya and Hector Santiago combined for three innings of one-run relief.Forsythe led off the game with a walk and Tony Conigliaro Jersey , one out later, Jorge Polanco homered into the left-field bleachers, the first off Rodon in 26 innings. He didn’t allow another hit until Forsythe’s infield single with one out in the fifth.Chicago pulled even on solo homers by Delmonico in the second and Anderson in the fourth. Anderson’s 17th matched his career high of a year ago.Forsythe’s single off Minaya in the seventh, his third of the game, scored the final run.SOX TRADE AVILANThe White Sox acquired RHP Felix Paulino from Philadelphia for LHP Luis Avilan, whose 58 relief appearances led the staff. Avilan had a 2-1 record and 3.86 ERA. Paulino went 4-4 with a 3.91 ERA in 31 games between Single-A Clearwater and Double-A Reading. RHP Ryan Burr and INF Jose Rondon were brought up from Triple-A Charlotte.STILL THE ONEINF Joe Mauer was given the day off and remained one hit behind Rod Carew (2,085) and second place on the all-time franchise list. Only Kirby Puckett (2,304) has more.TRAINER’S ROOMTwins: Manager Paul Molitor wouldn’t rule out a rotation spot for RHP Michael Pineda (Tommy John surgery) if he had no setbacks in his final two rehab starts with Triple-A Rochester.White Sox: McEwing was in contact via text with Renteria, who underwent more tests for the lightheadedness that he experienced on Monday in Minnesota. “He said he feels great, and hopefully, he’ll join us soon,” McEwing said. “That’s great news.” … INF Jose Abreu (lower abdominal surgery) was placed on the 10-day DL. The team leader in home runs (22) and RBI (78) could resume baseball-related drills in two weeksUP NEXTTwins: RHP Kohl Stewart (0-1, 7.71) will make his third big league start Thursday night in the opener of a four-game series against Oakland in Minnesota.White Sox: In what could be the final game of his White Sox career, RHP James Shields (5-14, 4.39) will start a four-game set at Detroit on Thursday afternoon.
