Diamondbacks overcome Rizzo's 2 HRs, beat Cubs 5-4

PHOENIX (AP) -

Paul Goldschmidt homered, Didi Gregorius had a pair of RBI singles and the Arizona Diamondbacks overcame two home runs by Anthony Rizzo to beat the Chicago Cubs 5-4 on Friday night.

Rizzo moved into a tie with Miami's Giancarlo Stanton for the NL home run lead at 22 with his sixth multi-homer game, second this season. He homered twice at Milwaukee on May 31.

Eury De La Rosa (1-0) gave up a run in one inning and got the win. Brian Schlitter (2-3) allowed a run in two-thirds of an inning for the loss.

The Diamondbacks' Martin Prado and manager Kirk Gibson were ejected by home plate umpire Cory Blaser in the eighth inning. It was the first time Prado was thrown out in his 933 major league games.
