Cubs top Giants in rain-shortened affair

Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Anthony Rizzo smacked a two-run homer as the Chicago Cubs defeated the San Francisco Giants, 2-0, in a rain-shortened opener of a three-game set.

The game was finally called due to an unplayable field following a 4 hour rain, 34-minute rain delay.

Rizzo also added a double, posting two of the three hits for Chicago, which has won three games in a row.

Tsuyoshi Wada (3-1) allowed six hits and struck out three in his first career shutout.

Angel Pagan and Joaquin Arias both went 2-for-3 for the Giants, who had won three of their last four games coming in.

Ryan Vogelsong (7-9) spun his third career complete game, giving up two runs on three hits and two walks.

Javier Baez worked a one-out walk in the first before Rizzo launched his two- run shot onto Sheffield Avenue to right for a 2-0 Chicago lead.

The Giants squandered one-out doubles by Hunter Pence and Pagan in the first and fourth innings, respectively.

Game Notes

Tuesday was the first of a six-game road trip for the Giants ... The Cubs were 0-for-3 with runners in scoring position, while San Francisco finished 1-for-6 ... Rizzo's homer was his 29th of the season.
