CHICAGO (AP) - Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo and David Bote homered, Trevor Williams pitched effectively into the seventh inning, and the Chicago Cubs beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-1.

Bryant and Bote each hit two-run shots as Chicago took two of three in the series.

Williams struck out six and allowed five hits with no walks over 6 1/3 innings in his first scoreless outing of the season.

It was the right-hander’s second start and third appearance since missing five weeks following an appendectomy.

Andrew Young had a pinch-hit RBI single and Pavin Smith had two hits for the Diamondbacks, who had won five of six.
