CHICAGO (AP) - Anthony Rizzo hit a two-run single in the first that ended Adam Wainwright's scoreless streak at 25 innings, and the Chicago Cubs beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-5 Friday for their third win in four games.

Wainwright (5-2) had allowed six runs in 45 innings coming in, but the Cubs matched that in just five innings against the St. Louis ace, who gave up 10 hits. His ERA rose from 1.20 to 2.16.

The scoreless streak was one inning shy of the career high for Wainwright, who had not allowed an extra-base hit since April 12 against the Cubs in St. Louis.

Rizzo added a leadoff home run in the fifth that put Chicago ahead 6-3. Welington Castillo had three doubles for Chicago, which sent the skidding Cardinals to their 10th loss in 16 games.
