Rizzo helps Cubs beat Brewers 5-2

MILWAUKEE (AP) Chicago was struggling before Anthony Rizzo got the Cubs back on track with one mighty swing in Milwaukee.

Rizzo hit a three-run homer with two out in the eighth inning, and lifting the Cubs to a 5-2 victory over the Brewers on Thursday night.

"The whole night, it wasn't going our way," Chicago manager Joe Maddon said. "But I liked the way we worked. And then eventually Riz steps up and does what he can do."
