Miguel Montero drove in two runs, and the Diamondbacks won consecutive games for only the second time this season. Addison Reed got his fifth save in six chances with a perfect ninth.

Edwin Jackson (1-2) pitched seven innings. He retired 17 of 18 batters after Bolsinger's run-scoring single in the second.

Montero hit a two-out double in the first inning for a 1-0 lead.

The Cubs got that run back right away in the bottom half. Leadoff man Emilio Bonifacio stretched a hit up the middle into a hustle double, which was reviewed when it appeared he was tagged out when he overslid the base. After a lengthy replay review, the call stood.

Following a walk, Bonifacio scored on Arizona left fielder Roger Kieschnick's error on a line drive by Anthony Rizzo.

The Cubs went on to load the bases with one out on a walk, but Bolsinger struck out Mike Olt looking and got Welington Castillo to fly out.

Cliff Pennington walked in the Arizona second and scored on Tony Campana's double. Bolsinger singled for a 3-1 lead.

Despite throwing 40 pitches through two innings, Jackson posted his longest outing since Sept. 10. He allowed five hits while walking two and striking out four.

Rizzo hit a solo home run in the eighth, his third of the season.
