PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Anthony Rizzo hit a towering go-ahead, two-run homer off Jason Grilli in the seventh inning and the Chicago Cubs rallied past the Pittsburgh Pirates, 5-4 on Friday night.

Brian Bogusevic went 3 for 4 with his fifth homer of the season for Chicago. Dioneer Navarro added two hits as the Cubs ended Pittsburgh's four-game winning streak.

Carlos Villanueva (6-8) picked up the win in relief. Kevin Gregg worked the ninth for his 32nd save.

Pedro Alvarez, Russell Martin and Garrett Jones hit consecutive solo home runs in the fourth for Pittsburgh. Andrew McCutchen went 2 for 4, but the Pirates lost for just the fourth time in 65 games when leading after six innings this season after Grilli (0-2) faltered.
