MLB: Chicago Cubs 7, Seattle 6

June 30, 2013 at 8:07 PM

SEATTLE, June 30 (UPI) -- Anthony Rizzo drove in two runs Sunday, contributing to two big innings that carried the Chicago Cubs to a 7-6 interleague victory over Seattle.

Rizzo's RBI double ignited a three-run outburst in the second that gave Chicago an early lead, and his run-scoring single in the fourth capped a four-run rally that put the Cubs ahead 7-1.

In between, Starlin Castro, Alfonso Soriano, Brian Bogusevic and Darwin Barney each provided an RBI as Chicago took the rubber match of the three-game series.

Edwin Jackson (4-10) allowed three runs on seven hits over six innings to earn the decision, walking one and striking out six.

He left with a 7-3 lead, but the Cubs bullpen allowed Seattle to get back into it when Shawn Camp yielded a solo homer to Raul Ibanez and a two-run shot to Kyle Seager in the eighth.

Hector Rondon put out the rally in despite allowing a wild pitch and a walk, and Kevin Gregg notched his 13th save with a 1-2-3 ninth.

Mariners starter Jeremy Bonderman (1-2) was tagged for six runs (four earned) on six hits in a 3 1/3-inning effort.

Jason Bay added a bases-empty homer for Seattle.
