Cubs snap losing skid against Mets

CHICAGO—Anthony Rizzo kept fouling the ball off, over and over again.

When Steven Matz finally blinked, Rizzo capitalized with one mighty swing.

Rizzo hit a three-run homer, and Jon Lester pitched 7 2/3 innings, as the Chicago Cubs stopped an eight-game losing streak against the N.Y. Mets with a 5-1 victory last night in a rematch of last year’s NL Championship Series.

Redblacks beat Argos

TORONTO—Tristan Jackson made sure Trevor Harris’ return to Toronto was a triumphant one.

Jackson’s 75-yard punt-return touchdown earned the unbeaten Ottawa Redblacks a 30-20 road win over the Toronto Argonauts last night.

Jackson broke three tackles en route to snapping a 20-20 tie at 4:19 of the fourth quarter for Ottawa—the CFL’s lone unbeaten squad at 3-0-1.
