CHICAGO Greg Maddux will have to wait for win No. 300.
Maddux came out after six innings with Chicago trailing by a run Sunday, so he wasn't around for a rally that carried Nomar Garciaparra and the Cubs to a 6-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies.
The right-hander wound up with a no-decision, and his next attempt to become the 22nd major league pitcher to reach 300 wins probably will come Saturday in San Francisco against Barry Bonds and the Giants. He gave up six hits including first-inning homers to Jimmy Rollins and Bobby Abreu and three runs, two earned, in six innings.
After Maddux left, the Cubs scored four runs in the seventh, capped by an RBI single from Garciaparra Chicago's new star shortstop who was acquired from Boston in a four-team deal just before baseball's trade deadline Saturday.
