CHICAGO (AP) — Anthony Rizzo hit a two-run homer in the 13th inning to give the Chicago Cubs a 5-3 victory over the Miami Marlins on Friday.

Rizzo also had a two-run double in the eighth as the Cubs earned their season-high fourth consecutive victory. Jason Hammel pitched seven scoreless innings and Chris Coghlan had an RBI double in his first game against his former team.

Junior Lake hit a leadoff single against Kevin Slowey (1-1) before Rizzo connected for his 12th homer, belting a long drive to right.

Carlos Villanueva (2-5) pitched two perfect innings for Chicago.
