Chase Utley hit a two-run homer and an RBI single, helping the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Chicago Cubs 7-2 on Friday in the opener of Wrigley Field's 100th anniversary season.

John Mayberry Jr. also had a two-run drive for his fourth career pinch-hit homer as Philadelphia bounced back after dropping the last two games of its opening series in Texas. Roberto Hernandez pitched into the sixth inning in his Phillies debut after signing a $4.5 million, one-year contract in the offseason.

Welington Castillo had a solo homer for the Cubs, who have dropped four consecutive home openers for the first time since 1991-94. Travis Wood (0-1) struck out eight in 6 1-3 innings, but was charged with four runs, three earned, and six hits.
