CHICAGO (AP) - Welington Castillo homered and drove in three runs, Luis Valbuena also hit a home run and the Chicago Cubs beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2 Monday.

     Rookie sensation Jorge Soler had two doubles in his home debut for the Cubs and Jacob Turner won in just his second start for Chicago after being acquired from Miami last month. The right-hander allowed just one run and five hits in 6 1-3 innings.

     Hector Rondon pitched the ninth for his 23rd save in 27 chances.

     Soler became just the third player in the last 100 years to have at least one extra-base hit in each of his first five games in the majors. Will Middlebrooks did it for the Boston Red Sox in 2012 and Enos Slaughter for the St. Louis Cardinals in 1938.

     Jimmy Nelson, who was called up from the minors to make the start, took the loss.

UNDATED (AP) - Matt Holliday had the go-ahead RBI single in the seventh inning after Kolten Wong's pinch-hit homer tied the score, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 5-4 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday.

     St. Louis took sole possession of first place in the NL Central for the first time this season with its third straight win. The Cardinals moved one game ahead of Milwaukee, which lost to the Chicago Cubs.

     St. Louis scored three in the seventh. Wong homered off Pittsburgh starter Gerrit Cole to tie the score at 4-all. Jon Jay followed with a triple and scored on Holliday's single to left.

     Holliday, who also had a two-run double in the third, is 7 for 11 with three home runs and 12 RBIs in the last three games.

     Seth Maness picked up win in relief. Trevor Rosenthal got the last three outs for his 41st save.
