Rizzo, Wood Homer as Cubs Beat Mets 7-4
CHICAGO (AP) — Anthony Rizzo hit a tiebreaking homer, Travis Wood went deep and drove in three runs, and the Chicago Cubs beat the New York Mets 7-4 Thursday night to complete the three-game sweep.
Rizzo’s solo drive off Vic Black (1-1) with one out in the seventh gave Chicago a lead after New York’s Andrew Brown capped a four-run comeback with a two-run shot in the top half.
Junior Lake added a two-run triple in the eighth, and the Cubs came away with their first series sweep since they took three at San Francisco last July 26-28.
Wood delivered in a big way at the plate and was in line for the win before New York rallied from a 4-0 deficit.
