CHICAGO -- Anthony Rizzos arrival in Chicago has generated hype throughout the city. Its also given a last-place team such as the Cubs an encouraging glimpse of the future. Rizzo hit his first homer in a Cubs uniform Saturday, a two-run, go-ahead shot to spark a 3-2 victory over the Houston Astros. He now has two game-winning hits in four games and Chicago is 3-1 since he joined the team. "Its good to come into a new clubhouse and produce like that and help the team win," said Rizzo, who also made a nice play in the field to cut down a run. "Its a lot of fun when you do that. Its just good to win." Matt Garza (4-6) struggled but got the victory by working 5 1-3 innings. Five Cubs relievers combined to allow one hit and no runs over the final 3 2-3 innings with Carlos Marmol pitching the ninth for his seventh save in nine chances. Rizzo has worked to shorten up his swing since spring training and put up impressive numbers at Triple-A. And his homer Saturday -- the second of his career after hitting one with the Padres last season -- came off a left-hander in J.A. Happ. "Thats another thing I worked on hard this year, hitting lefties and I feel comfortable if its a lefty or righty," he said. Said Garza: "Hes going a great job producing and doing what he does." "Let the guy enjoy it," he said. "Let him enjoy his ride." Happ (6-8) allowed five hits, four walks and three runs in six innings. But the former Northwestern University pitcher is winless in his past 11 road decisions dating to May 3, 2011. "Its frustrating. It was a walk, a bloop and a blast, then a loss," Happ said. "Its tough taking that, but other than that I felt good out there." Veteran Astros first baseman Carlos Lee, the subject of trade rumours involving the Los Angeles Dodgers, went 0 for 4. He said after the game he would talk to his wife about whether to accept the move. "Probably tomorrow Ill let you know," Lee said after the game. "Because I dont want to go through this. Either Im going or Im not." Rizzos long and high drive to right field scored Starlin Castro for a 3-2 lead. Moments earlier, Castro had hit a two-out RBI single for Chicagos first run. Garza laboured on the 92-degree afternoon but was backed by three double plays and some overly aggressive baserunning by the Astros. He gave up two runs and nine hits in 5 1-3 innings and threw 104 pitches with three walks. Scott Maine relieved him in the sixth and gave up a single to Jason Castro, but Cubs left fielder Alfonso Soriano made a strong throw to get Chris Johnson trying to make third on the hit. A leadoff single by J.D. Martinez, a double by Scott Moore and a single by Jordan Schafer gave the Astros a 1-0 lead in the third. But a big inning was averted when Rizzo fielded Jed Lowries grounder to first base and made a strong throw to the plate to easily nail Moore. "Thats my go-to place," Rizzo said. "Hittings going to come and go but fieldings going to be the consistent thing I pride myself on all the time. Thats where I go to." Martinez hit a two-out RBI single in the fourth, right after the Cubs had turned a 5-3 double play with two runners on. But he was caught off second after initially heading for third on Moores single and was tagged out to end the inning. "Im not exactly sure what J.D. was doing. C.J., I dont really mind as much, he was trying to bust his tail to get to third with one out with Soriano, whos known not to have the best arm around, and he was going to his left," Astros manager Brad Mills said. "Im not exactly sure what happened to J.D. because he was halfway to third and he stopped." Lowrie saved a run in the fourth with a great stop on Darwin Barneys hard two-out grounder to shortstop, shovelling it backhanded to second baseman Moore for the out.

Cubs 3B Ian Stewart could be headed for surgery after his injured left wrist has not responded to treatment. ....

KRANJSKA GORA, Slovenia -- Michaela Kirchgasser of Austria won a World Cup slalom on Sunday after pre-race favourites Marlies Schild and Maria Hoefl-Riesch skied out on the first run. Kirchgasser led after the first leg and increased her advantage in the second, finishing in one minute 47.25 seconds, more than sixth-tenths of a second faster than Finlands Tanja Poutiainen. Veronika Zuzulova of Slovakia was third, 1.34 seconds off the pace. World Cup leader Lindsey Vonn finished seventh. Erin Mielzynski of Guelph, Ont., finished 18th with a time of 1:51.86. It is Kirchgassers second career World Cup victory and comes five years after her first win in a giant slalom. "I did pretty good skiing," Kirchgasser said. "I like it when its icy like this and you have to fight from start to finish. Its a great feeling, its unbelievable, its a long time since I won." World slalom champion Schild had won the previous five World Cup slalom races, while Hoefl-Riesch is the reigning Olympic champion as well as the current World Cup holder. But both skied out after missing the same gate at the top of the difficult Kranjska Gora course. A womens World Cup race has only been held on the course twice in the last 21 years, although the men race here regularly. Schild and Hoefl-Riesch were among 26 competitors who did not finish the first run, while six others failed on the second, including three of the top ten after the first run. "I dont know if Marlies would have been faster but I had two good runs and gave all I can do," Kirchgasser said. "I dont know if she would have beat me or I would have beat her." Vonn strruggled at the bottom of the course, as she did in Saturdays giant slalom, and finished with a time of 1:50.dddddddddddd14. "My second run wasnt great -- again. And I had problems -- again. But I fought really hard," Vonn said. "I gave it my all and pushed all the way but then unfortunately I had problems at the bottom again and I didnt quite do it. I really tried though, and seventh is my best result all season so Im happy with it." Home favourite Tina Maze, spurred on by a noisy crowd, finished fourth, slightly cutting Vonns lead in the overall standings. The American is 282 points ahead of Maze, and is firmly on course for a fourth World Cup title. "Tina hasnt closed the gap by much, Im still nearly almost 300 points ahead of her," Vonn said. "And my goal this season is to keep winning in the downhill, keep winning in the super G, win in the super combined ... stay in the top three in the GS and try to stay with (Maze) in the slalom. "Shes always top three in the slalom, though not today, so its going to be tough," Vonn said. "But my aim isnt scoring the big points in slalom but just to keep going and stay with her." The 48th Golden Fox event was supposed to be held in Maribor but was moved due to a lack of snow. Last years event was also affected by weather and had to be cancelled. Kathrin Zettel of Austria won the giant slalom and the slalom in 2010. The defending champion finished fifth after a strong second run. Back in 17th spot after the first run, Zettel was provisional leader with a time of 1:49:53 until overtaken by Maze, the fourth last skier to race. ' ' '
