Cubs beat Diamondbacks 14-6
Anthony Rizzo matched his career high with six RBIs and the Chicago Cubs beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 14-6 on Thursday night but lost Kyle Schwarber with a sprained ankle in an outfield collision.
Schwarber was hurt in the second inning when he collided with Dexter Fowler, a play that resulted in an inside-the-park home run for Arizona’s Jean Segura.
Segura also started the game with a homer. He is the eighth player in major league history to lead off with a home run and hit an inside-the-park homer in the same game.
John Lackey (1-0) gave up six runs on eight hits over six innings in his Cubs debut, but got the win thanks to a five-run Chicago fourth inning.
The Diamondbacks were up 3-0, 4-2 and 6-4 but starter Rubby De La Rosa (0-1) couldn’t hold the leads.
