PHILADELPHIA — Raul Ibanez hit a three-run home run, Carlos Ruiz and Ryan Howard each hit one and the Philadelphia Phillies won their ninth consecutive game, 10-1, over the Chicago Cubs on Monday night.

Ruiz had a run-scoring double during a four-run fourth inning.

Rodrigo Lopez (2-0) gave up one run over six innings to give the Phillies their 13th win in 14 games.

The Phillies are on their longest winning streak since 2006 and improved to 23-23 at home. They were 13-22 at home before they finished 9-1 in their last homestand.

Ted Lilly (9-7) was rocked in his shortest outing of the season for the Cubs, whose winning streak ended at four games.
