About this Article

Rookie Junior Lake hit his first major league homer and drove in three runs to power the Chicago Cubs to a 4-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Lake's two-run homer off Tyler Skaggs with no outs in the fifth inning gave the Cubs a 3-0 lead. Lake's RBI single in the ninth scored Darwin Barney with an insurance run. Chris Rusin (1-0) got the win after being a late substitute for Matt Garza, who was traded earlier Monday to the Texas Rangers.
