"Matt Cain was awfully good today," Cubs manager Lou Piniella said. "He pounded the strike zone and had a good breaking ball."
The Cubs had won six of seven to clinch at least a .500 record for the season.
San Francisco scored three runs in the sixth to build a 5-0 lead. Whiteside doubled in Travis Ishikawa for the second time in the game and scored on Velez's single. Sandoval added an RBI single.
