Boy asks for homer, Rizzo hits slam as Cubs beat Padres 6-5

CHICAGO (AP) Before Friday's game against San Diego, 9-year-old Matteo Lambert of Vienna, Virginia, met Anthony Rizzo in the Chicago Cubs' dugout and gave him a note asking for a "moonshot" on behalf of group running a 5K in Grant Park this weekend to raise money for kids with cancer.

Rizzo followed with a go-ahead grand slam, his first home run since June 15.

"That was for him," Rizzo, a Hodgkin's lymphoma survivor, said after the Cubs overcame a three-run deficit to beat the Padres 6-5. "That's really special for him to come and hang out there."
