MLB: Chicago Cubs 4, Miami 2

April 26, 2013 at 10:34 PM   |   Comments

MIAMI, April 26 (UPI) -- Anthony Rizzo drove in all of Chicago's runs with two homers Friday to bring Scott Feldman his first win of the season and the Cubs a 4-2 triumph over Miami.

Rizzo smashed two-run home runs in both the first and third innings and four Chicago pitchers made the lead stand up.

Feldman (1-3) gave up two runs on seven hits with two walks in 6 1/3 innings. Kevin Gregg came on to work a perfect ninth for his second save.

Chicago has won two games in a row for the first time this season. Miami has yet to do so and is the only team in the majors without consecutive victories.

Dave Sappelt scored ahead of Rizzo on both his homers, reaching base on a single to open the game and then delivering an infield single in the third.

Wade LeBlanc (0-4) took the loss, allowing both homers and six other hits in six-plus innings.
