PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Edwin Jackson is looking to find his form again.
The Cubs right-hander struggled through 4 2-3 innings, giving up Jimmy Rollins' Phillies-record 2,235rd career hit, and Chicago lost 7-4 to Philadelphia on Saturday.
Jackson (4-7) allowed seven runs — six earned — and eight hits with two strikeouts and two walks.
"I did a bad job of executing my pitches," he said.
After three strong starts to begin May, where he went 1-1 with a 1.80 ERA, Jackson is 1-4 with a 7.56 ERA in his last five outings.
"I have to go back to finding my rhythm and keeping the ball down," Jackson said. "I have to go back to the basics and make pitches."
Justin Ruggiano, Luis Valbuena and Mike Olt homered for Chicago, which was trying to win consecutive road games on the same trip for the first time since last Sept. 10-11.
Domonic Brown and Chase Utley homered for Philadelphia, which has won four of five following a dismal 1-8 stretch.
The Cubs trailed 4-3 entering the bottom of the fifth when Rollins set the table for a three-run inning by lacing Jackson's 3-1 pitch to right to pass Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt as the Phillies' all-time hits leader.
"It was very cool," Rollins said.
Schmidt, a Phillies TV analyst for Sunday games, retrieved Rollins' bat and greeted the 2007 NL MVP with a high-five and hug at first base. The entire Phillies team then came out from the dugout to offer congratulatory hugs and handshakes.
After the Phillies went back to their dugout, Schmidt took Rollins' hand and held it in the air. Fans cheered and gave the duo a standing ovation as fireworks erupted from the large video board in left field.
"I told him, 'Congrats, it couldn't happen to a better guy," Schmidt said later in the game. "I'm glad I was here. My heart is pounding."
