Rizzo Leads Cubs Past Mets 5-3
CHICAGO (AP) -- Anthony Rizzo had two hits and drove in the go-ahead run in his first game with the Chicago Cubs, who rallied for a 5-3 victory over the sliding New York Mets on Tuesday night.

Rizzo's two-out double drove in Steve Clevenger in the fourth, making it 4-3 and sending the Mets to their fourth straight loss _ matching a season high. Rizzo was called up earlier in the day for his highly anticipated Cubs debut after posting big numbers for Triple-A Iowa.

Rizzo reached on an infield single in the first when his smash eluded shortstop Ruben Tejada, a play that was originally scored an error. He also grounded out to first in the third, moving up two runners in the process and sparking Chicago's three-run rally.
