PITTSBURGH -- All eyes were supposed to be on Gregory Polanco. But thanks to his new-found success against left-handed pitchers, Anthony Rizzo stole the show. Rizzo homered, doubled twice and drove in three runs to lead the Chicago Cubs over the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-3 Tuesday night, spoiling Polancos much-anticipated debut. Rizzo hit a two-run homer in the first inning off lefty Francisco Liriano, who came out in the fourth with discomfort on his right side. Rizzo also doubled and scored in the fourth and hit an RBI double in the seventh, a drive to deep right-centre that struck Polancos left wrist as the touted Pirates rookie tried to make the catch. Rizzo has five home runs and a .344 batting average in 61 at-bats against left-handers this season. Last year, he batted .189 with seven homers against southpaws in 189 at-bats. "I feel more comfortable against them now and its the best Ive ever hit left-handers at any level," Rizzo said. "I dont know if Ill ever figure lefties out -- or right-handers, either -- but I do feel confident against them." Rizzo has every reason to feel confident. He has five homers in his last 10 games, raising his season total to 13. "You can talk about mechanics and scouting reports and everything else, but the biggest thing in this game is confidence," Rizzo said. "If you step into the batters box with confidence, then youre giving yourself a much better chance to hit." Polanco went 1 for 5 after getting called up from Triple-A Indianapolis, where the right fielder was leading the International League with a .347 batting average and 49 RBIs in 62 games. "It was a lot of fun," he said. "It was exciting. I was a little nervous at first but then I relaxed and had fun." Pinch-hitter Luis Valbuenas two-run double off Casey Sadler (0-1) broke a 3-all tie in the sixth and put Chicago ahead for good. Travis Wood (6-5) allowed three runs and nine hits in 6 2-3 innings. "It was a grind at times but I got through it," Wood said. Andrew McCutchen hit a two-run homer for the Pirates, his ninth of the season and fifth in nine June games. Valbuena and Junior Lake each had two hits for the Cubs, as did Pittsburghs Russell Martin and Starling Marte. Rizzo scored on a single by Starlin Castro in the seventh to push Chicagos lead to 7-3. Rizzos homer put the Cubs up 2-0, but the Pirates tied it on McCutchens drive in the third. In the top of the fourth, Rizzo led off with a double and scored on Darwin Barneys double. Pittsburgh tied it again in the bottom half on pinch-hitter Jose Tabatas RBI double. "Rizzos blast there in the first inning kind of got us rolling and we did a good job of adding on runs after that," Chicago manager Rick Renteria said. Liriano allowed two runs in three-plus innings. He bent over and held his back after throwing a pitch to Rizzo, then left the mound after a few warmup pitches. After leading the Pirates with 16 wins last season, Liriano has struggled this year. He is 1-6 with a 4.60 ERA in 14 starts. Liriano will almost certainly miss his scheduled start Sunday in Miami and could land on the disabled list. Pirates right-hander Gerrit Cole (right shoulder fatigue) went on the DL on Sunday and second baseman Neil Walker (appendectomy) followed him Tuesday. NOTES: The Cubs released RHP Jose Veras, one week after designating him for assignment. He was 0-2 with an 8.10 ERA in 12 relief appearances while going 0 for 2 on save chances. ... Pittsburgh 3B Pedro Alvarez got the night off. He is 1 for 18 against Wood. ... Chicago RHP Jason Hammel (6-3, 2.53 ERA) is scheduled to start Wednesday night against RHP Brandon Cumpton (1-2, 6.51).

Miles scored 28 points off the bench to lead the Indiana Pacers to a 100-96 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday. Roy Hibbert supplied 15 points with eight rebounds and David West netted 14 points for Indiana, which snapped an eight-game road losing streak. Our guys have been deep in the playoffs, they showed great composure and we were able to pull out the win, Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. Mo Williams poured in 24 points with 10 assists for the Timberwolves, while Shabazz Muhammad and Chase Budinger deposited 21 and 13 points, respectively. Minnesota has lost five straight. Williams 3-pointer gave the Timberwolves a 90-89 lead late, their first advantage since it was 3-2 early in the first. Hibbert answered at the other end with a layup before Williams worked a pick- and-roll with Gorgui Dieng and knocked down the jumper from the top of the key. The seesaw affair continued with Miles burying a trey to give Indiana a 94-92 edge, but Dieng converted a pair of free throws to tie the game with 1:36 left. Hibbert missed a hook shot with under a minute to play, however, Miles pulled down the offensive rebound. Out of a timeout, West hit a jumper to push the Pacers back in front with 34.3 seconds left. Rookie Andrew Wiggins made a pivotal mistake at the other end. Williams looked for a back-doorr pass to Wiggins, who stepped out of bounds as he received the ball, thus turning it over.dddddddddddd Indiana worked the ball around after the turnover and chipped eight seconds off the clock before Miles was fouled. He converted both shots from the line to make it a two-possession game with 11.7 seconds left. Newly-acquired Troy Daniels missed a long two-point try, then Luis Scola missed a pair from the line. Muhammad made a quick jumper in the closing seconds and Miles sealed it with two from the stripe. We didnt play as hard as we needed to play in the first half, Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. (The young guys) need to play with a sense of urgency. Or they are going to sit. Miles 3 gave the Pacers a 20-17 lead after 12 minutes. Indiana then went on a 10-2 run early in the second to push the margin to 10 and it led 52-38 at the half. Minnesota worked its way back, however, as Diengs jumper late in the third cut the deficit to three. The Pacers scored six of the final eight points of the quarter, though, and led 75-68 entering the fourth. Game Notes Minnesota is 1-10 in the month of December ... Scola and Donald Sloan chipped in with 10 points each in the win ... Hibbert had four blocks for Indiana ... The Timberwolves had a 43-36 rebound advantage ...
