Wells won for the seventh time in eight starts Wednesday as the Cubs beat the Astros 12-0. For the season, he's 7-4 with a 2.84 ERA.

Wells turned in eight innings, and manager Lou Piniella said he's been one of the most pleasant surprises of the season. The 26-year-old Wells came up from Class AAA Iowa on May 8.

Wells has turned in 12 of the Cubs' 62 quality starts.
