Cubs silence Phillies’ bats

– Matt Garza executed his plan to near perfection.

Garza pitched one-hit ball for seven shutout innings and struck out 10 Sunday as the Chicago Cubs beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-1.

Garza (2-1) gave up a pop-fly single to Jimmy Rollins leading off and retired 20 of the next 21 batters.

“I just stuck to the game plan, keep them off balance and try to get popups or ground balls,” Garza said. “I was very comfortable out there. I wanted to go after them. They’re a very aggressive team.”
