CHICAGO (AP) -- Ryan Kalish hit a two-run double and an RBI triple and the Chicago Cubs beat the Philadelphia Phillies 8-3 on Sunday to avoid a sweep.
Cubs starter Carlos Villanueva allowed a run in five innings in his first start and third outing of the season.
A.J. Burnett, who signed a one-year, $16 million contract with the Phillies after he spent the last two seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates, allowed eight runs, four earned, in 5 2-3 innings. He struck out three but walked six.
The Cubs scored four runs in the first and sixth innings.
Kalish opened up the scoring with an RBI triple in the first. It was his first hit since Sept. 11, 2012, when he played for the Boston Red Sox.
