Homer ends duel
Photos
Cubs 3, Giants 1
Aramis Ramirez connects for his 17th homer of the year. (M. Spencer Green/AP)
Derrek Lee was intentionally walked in the eighth inning to get to Aramis Ramirez, and the Cubs third baseman repaid the slight with a three-run shot to break a scoreless tie. Jason Marquis kept the Giants off the board for seven innings, allowing only three hits.
