CHICAGO -- Anthony Rizzo wasted little time in getting to Adam Wainwright. Derrick Thomas Jersey . Rizzo hit a two-run single in the first that ended Wainwrights scoreless streak at 25 innings, and the Cubs beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-5 Friday for their third win in four games. "Im not trying to do too much," Rizzo said. "See the ball and hit it, really try to swing at the pitches I want to hit, not pitchers pitches. Especially with Wainwright, his stuff is so good hes going to eat you alive." Wainwright (5-2) had allowed six runs in 45 innings coming in, but the Cubs matched the runs total in just five innings against the St. Louis ace, who gave up 10 hits. His ERA rose from 1.20 to 2.16. "They did a nice job of spoiling some pitches," Cubs manager Rick Renteria said of his batters. "Youve got to give them all the credit. They grinded out some at-bats today and reaped some benefits." Wainwright had been 6-0 in 12 previous starts and five relief appearances at Wrigley Field. "There were certain pitches today I didnt have good command over," he said. "My curveball was kind of sporadic in the zone and out of the zone, which is pretty rare for me. Its a funny game. Today was not my day. I accept that and take responsibility for today and move on." The scoreless streak was one inning shy of the career high for Wainwright, who had not allowed an extra-base hit since April 12 against the Cubs in St. Louis. "Hes been incredibly consistent through this season so far. ... You can see pitches were just on the edge and not where he wanted them or werent getting called," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "Its a frustrating day when he knows our guys put some offence up for him and we just cant stop them. He limited the damage and figured out ways to keep us in it. We had some chances." Rizzo added a leadoff home run in the fifth that put Chicago ahead 6-3. Welington Castillo had three doubles for Chicago, which sent the skidding Cardinals to their 10th loss in 16 games. Travis Wood (2-3) gave up three runs -- two earned -- and six hits in seven innings but allowed just one runner in his final three innings. Justin Grimm gave up Jhonny Peraltas two-run homer in the eighth, Hector Rondon pitched a perfect ninth for his second save. Cubs centerfielder Ryan Sweeney made a catch on the run in the eighth on a drive to right-centre by Allen Craig. Sweeney injured his right hamstring and was replaced by Emilio Bonifacio, who moved from second. "It was great determination," Renteria said. "Hammys hurt." St. Louis overcame its early deficit, tying the game in the third when Matt Carpenter singled in a run and scored on Peraltas double. Chicago loaded the bases in the bottom half on a pair of walks around Starlin Castros single. Ryan Sweeney drove in the go-ahead run with a weak grounder to second that allowed Rizzo to score from third, and Castillo followed with a two-out, two-run double. Castros throwing error from shortstop on Randal Grichuks grounder allowed Yadier Molina to score from third and cut the deficit to 5-3 in the fourth. NOTES: Cubs GM Jed Hoyer said RHP Jose Veras (left oblique strain) will begin his rehab assignment at Double-A Tennessee and pitch at some point in the next few days, depending on how he feels. ... Cubs prospect OF Jorge Soler (hamstring) is progressing at the teams facility in Mesa, Arizona. Hoyer said "the reports have been good" and he hopes Soler will join Tennessee soon. ... RHP Jack Arrieta is to make his big league season debut for the Cubs when he starts Saturday. RHP Michael Wacha (2-2) is slated to slart for St. Louis. 19:27ET 02-05-14 Marcus Peters Womens Jersey . -- Clayton Kershaw and Hyun-Jin Ryu will be the Dodgers starting pitchers in their two-game season-opening series in Australia against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Schaub will start for an injured Case Keenum and try to help the Texans end a 12-game skid. Schaubs last action in Houston came when he took over late in a game against Oakland on Nov. 17 as Keenum was struggling.Ottawa, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Longtime Senators star Daniel Alfredsson returned to Ottawa on Thursday to officially announce his retirement. Alfredsson played his first 17 NHL seasons with the Senators before spending the 2013-14 campaign with Detroit. He would likely have played another season with the Red Wings, but back problems forced him to call it a career. Last year my body began to complain once more, said Alfredsson at a Thursday news conference. The old injuries and hard work to recover began again. I worked hard to play another year, (but) three weeks ago I decided to retire. Alfredsson signed a one-day contract with the Senators and will skate with the team Thursday night in warmups before the scheduled game against the New York Islanders. I am very happy to have the opportunity to retire as a Senator, Alfredsson added. The more I thought about it, the more I thought it was the right thing to do. The native of Sweden, who will turn 42 years old next week, joined the Senators for the 1995-96 season and became the face of the franchise. He was named the clubs captain in October 1999 and served in that role until he departed for Detroit as a free agent in July 2013. Alfredsson was the Calder Trophy winner as the leagues top rookie in 1996 and helped the Senators to 144 playoff appearances during his tenure, including a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals in the spring of 2007. Dee Ford Jersey. The Eastern Conference championship and the five-game loss to Anaheim in the Cup Finals, Alfredsson said, were among the many highlights in his career. When we went to the Finals (was special), said Alfredsson. The way the whole city came behind the team. Alfredsson is the Senators all-time leader with 1,178 games played, 426 goals, 682 assists and 1,108 points. He added 51 goals and 100 points in 121 playoff games for the franchise. Senators owner Eugene Melnyk indicated that the club will likely retire Alfredssons No. 11 jersey. Without question, Daniel has been the greatest player that this city has ever seen, Melnyk said. Last year in Detroit, Alfredsson scored 18 goals and added 31 assists for 49 points in 68 games. He will finish his career ranked 60th in NHL history with 444 goals and 51st all-time with 1,157 points. Its going to be tough to find another job that is as rewarding and fun as it is to play in the NHL, Alfredsson said Thursday. Alfredsson was a six-time participant in the NHL All-Star Game and was a Second-Team NHL All-Star in 2006. He represented Sweden in the Olympics five times, winning gold in 2006 and silver in 2014.
