CHICAGO (AP) A steady breeze blowing in off Lake Michigan kept Wrigley Field comfortable Friday. It didn't contain or cool off the Chicago Cubs.

Anthony Rizzo hit a grand slam in Chicago's eight-run fifth inning, and rookie Addison Russell homered twice to power the Cubs and Jon Lester to a 14-5 rout of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Javier Baez added a two-run shot - his first homer this season - and went 3 for 4 in his third game since his recall from the minors as the Cubs rolled to their third win in five games following a four-game losing streak.
