Philadelphia • Ethan Martin earned his first major league win, Cody Asche hit his first home run and the Philadelphia Phillies routed the Chicago Cubs 12-1 Thursday.

Asche's two-run drive capped a six-run burst in the fourth inning that made it 10-1. He had three hits and fellow rookie Darin Ruf also homered.

Martin (1-1) got more than enough support. He pitched five innings and allowed one run and four hits, striking out four and walking three. Nat Schierholtz homered in the fourth.

Chase Utley delivered an RBI double on the day the Phillies announced a new contract with the star second baseman that goes through the 2015 season.

Jeff Samardzija (6-11) was chased in the fourth inning.

The game was delayed by rain for 22 minutes in the seventh inning.
