Welington Castillo and Anthony Rizzo led the Chicago Cubs offense to chase Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright early for a 6-5 victory on Friday afternoon at Wrigley Field.

The Cubs’ six runs snapped Wainwright’s impressive 25 scoreless innings streak, a streak that started after he gave up four runs to the Cubs in St. Louis.

Cubs’ starter Jake Arrieta will make his season debut on Saturday in game two against the Cardinals while the team waits to head back on outfielder Ryan Sweeney‘s status after he underwent an MRI on his right hamstring.
