ST. LOUIS (AP) - Anthony Rizzo homered with three RBIs and Jon Lester had a strong outing for the Chicago Cubs, who ended the St. Louis Cardinals' eight-game winning streak and their own four-game skid with a 6-4 victory on Wednesday night.

Jhonny Peralta hit a 447-foot homer and Yadier Molina had two hits and two RBIs for the Cardinals, who erased deficits of five and three runs the first two games of the four-game series but couldn't quite make up a three-run, fifth-inning deficit. Lance Lynn (1-3) allowed five runs in six innings.

St. Louis put runners on the corners with one out in the ninth before Hector Rondon escaped for his sixth save in seven chances.

Lester (2-2) left leading 5-4 after seven innings but only one of the runs was earned.
