MLB: Arizona 8, Chicago Cubs 4

June 2, 2013 at 6:51 PM

CHICAGO, June 2 (UPI) -- Cody Ross drove in a pair of key runs and Patrick Corbin racked up his ninth win Sunday in the Arizona Diamondbacks' 8-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs.

The score tied 4-4 in the sixth when the D-backs scored three times -- all with two outs. Didi Gregorius, Martin Prado and Paul Goldschmidt delivered consecutive singles against Cubs starter Edwin Jackson to grab the lead.

After Prado and Goldschmidt moved up on a wild pitch, the Cubs intentionally walked Jason Kubel to load the bases.

That brought up Ross, who lined a two-run single to break the game open.

Wil Nieves went 3-for-5 with two RBI hits as the National League West-leading Diamondbacks took the rubber match of a three-game set.

Corbin (9-0) reeled off his seventh win in seven starts despite yielding four runs on six hits over six innings.

Jackson (1-8), meanwhile, was lit up for seven runs (five earned) on 12 hits in a 5 2/3-inning effort.

Scott Hairston pounded a two-run homer for the Cubs.
