CHICAGO — Ted Lilly gave up four hits and a run in eight innings to earn his 100th victory as the Chicago Cubs beat the St. Louis Cardinals, 5-2, Saturday.

Lilly (9-6), the Cubs' lone selection to the All-Star game, walked one and struck out four in a 103-pitch outing and left with a 5-1 lead. The veteran left-hander was staked to a 3-0 lead with Jeff Baker hitting a two-run, bases-loaded single in the first inning.

St. Louis got a run in the ninth against Carlos Marmol and had the tying run at the plate before closer Kevin Gregg struck out pinch-hitter Skip Schumaker to end the game.
