PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Travis Wood pitched hitless ball into the sixth inning and the Chicago Cubs beat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-0 Sunday to win a road series for the first time this season.

Anthony Rizzo hit his 14th home run and Starlin Castro added three hits as the Cubs took two of three at Citizens Bank Park.

The Phillies finished with just three hits against Wood (7-5) and closer Neil Ramirez while being shut out for the ninth time this year.

Wood didn't allow a hit until Ben Revere's one-out single in the sixth. He gave up three hits in eight innings while striking out six and walking three.

Ramirez got his third save.

A.J. Burnett (4-6) gave up three runs and eight hits in eight innings. He moved past Hall of Famer Eddie Plank into 50th place on the career strikeout list with his fifth-inning fanning of Luis Valbuena, giving him 2,252.
