Cubs outlast Giants 2-0 in rain-shortened game

Updated: Wednesday, August 20, 2014

CHICAGO (AP) - Anthony Rizzo slammed a two-run homer, Tsuyoshi Wada pitched five strong innings, and the Chicago Cubs beat the San Francisco Giants 2-0 on Tuesday night in a game that was halted after 4 1/2 innings because of unplayable field conditions following rain at Wrigley Field.

After a brief but heavy downpour, the game was delayed 4 hours, 34 minutes before it was called off at 1:16 a.m. Fewer than 1,000 fans remained.

When the rain and the wind intensified in the middle of the fifth inning, home plate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt stopped play. The grounds crew couldn't get the manual tarp fully in place, leaving large portions of the infield exposed to rain for more than 10 minutes.

The Giants lost for the seventh time in 10 games  and fell 4 1/2 games behind Los Angeles in the NL West race.
