Rizzo leads Cubs past Brewers 8-4

CHICAGO (AP) Anthony Rizzo homered, drove in three runs and stole two bases in his return to the cleanup spot, and the Chicago Cubs restored their three-game lead in the NL Central by topping the Milwaukee Brewers 8-4 on Wednesday.

Jason Heyward added three hits and two RBIs as Chicago bounced back nicely from its 7-0 loss to Milwaukee in the opener of the two-game series. David Bote had two hits, scored twice and made a terrific barehanded play at third base in his first action since he hit a game-ending grand slam in Sunday night's 4-3 victory over Washington.

Kyle Hendricks (9-9) struck out eight in six-plus innings on his bobblehead day, providing a lift for the Cubs after Jon Lester and Jose Quintana struggled in recent starts.
