SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Derek Lowe held Barry Bonds hitless in three more at-bats and stuck on 751 home runs, and the Los Angeles Dodgers won their 10th straight game in San Francisco on Rafael Furcal's sacrifice fly in the 12th inning of an 8-7 victory Saturday.
Bonds is 0-for-11 in his career against Lowe. He also struck out in the seventh inning against Joe Beimel and grounded out in the 11th against Mark Hendrickson in his first 0-for-5 game since Sept. 26, 2005. Bonds is hitless in his last 13 at-bats and has not homered since July 3 at Cincinnati, remaining four shy of tying Hank Aaron's record of 755.
Bonds did walk to lead off the ninth against All-Star closer Takashi Saito and scored the tying run on Pedro Feliz's two-out RBI single.
But the Dodgers rallied with a leadoff double by James Loney in the 12th off Pat Misch (0-1). Loney went to third on Wilson Betemit's single, and after Misch intentionally loaded the bases, Furcal hit a fly ball and Loney beat Fred Lewis' throw home to score the go-ahead run.
Hendrickson (4-4) pitched two scoreless innings for the win. Rudy Seanez worked the 12th for his first save since June 23, 2001, for San Diego.
Cubs 9, Astros 3
CHICAGO (AP) - Ted Lilly won his fourth straight start, Aramis Ramirez had four RBIs and Alfonso Soriano hit a three-run homer for the Cubs.
Lilly (9-4), who hasn't lost since June 5, gave up four hits and a run over eight innings to help Chicago win for the 14th time in 18 games. The left-hander walked one, struck out seven and added a run-scoring single in the sixth for his third major league RBI.
Soriano followed with his homer to left, his team-leading 16th of the season, to finish Roy Oswalt (8-6). The right-hander, who was on the NL All-Star team, gave up 10 hits and a season-high nine runs in 5 1-3 innings.
Phillies 10, Cardinals 4
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Jimmy Rollins, Ryan Howard and Aaron Rowand homered, Pat Burrell added four RBIs and Philadelphia avoided its 10,000th loss again.
Rowand had four hits, Rollins and Burrell had three hits apiece and Chase Utley knocked in two runs for the Phillies, who had 14 hits a day after compiling a season-high 23. The highest-scoring team in the National League scored a run in five of the first six innings.
Cole Hamels (11-4) matched Chicago's Carlos Zambrano as the only 11-game winners in the NL, though the lefty was clearly without his best stuff. He gave up four runs in six innings and overtook Jake Peavy for the league's strikeout lead (126-125).
Mike Maroth (0-2) gave up nine hits and eight runs - six earned - in five innings.
