The Phillies led, 1-0, in the first off Jim Deshaies (5-3). Gary Redus led off with a double and scored on Von Hayes' two-out single. One inning later, Deshaies walked the bases loaded, then walked Ron Roenicke to make it 2-0.
Schmidt opened the third with his homer off reliever Larry Andersen, making it 3-1.
Cubs 8, Dodgers 3: Jody Davis hit a two-run homer and Keith Moreland had four hits as Los Angeles' four-game winning streak ended in Chicago.
Steve Trout (4-3), who hadn't won since June 8 and has not had a complete game since last September, allowed five hits in six innings. Lee Smith pitched the final 1 2/3 innings for his 17th save. Bob Welch (4-9) was the loser.
Davis' 13th homer came in the eighth after the Dodgers had rallied within 5-3.
Reds 9, Expos 2: Eric Davis homered and scored three runs and Buddy Bell hit a three-run homer to back a five-hitter by John Denny (7-9) as Cincinnati won at home.
Davis had three hits to extend his hitting streak to 17 games. His 15th home run, in the second, cut Montreal's lead to 2-1.
