Cubs-Diamondbacks Preview

(AP) -- Following another big offensive performance in Arizona from Anthony Rizzo, the Chicago Cubs can win their first road series against the Diamondbacks in five seasons Sunday.

After blowing a two-run, ninth-inning lead in Friday's 5-4, 13-inning defeat, Chicago (24-18) tied the game with two runs in the eighth and went ahead on Rizzo's three-run homer in the ninth to win 9-6 a night later. Rizzo, who nearly missed a grand slam but settled for a bases-clearing double in the fifth, matched a career high with six RBIs to help the Cubs snap a six-game losing streak to Arizona (20-22).

"You've got to love the fight within the group, man," manager Joe Maddon said. "I'm really proud of our boys."
