Kimbrel closes out debut with Rizzo's help, Cubs beat Braves

CHICAGO (AP) Craig Kimbrel got a little help settling in at Wrigley Field.

Kimbrel dodged trouble for a save in his season debut when new teammate Anthony Rizzo dived into first base for the final out, and the Chicago Cubs rallied from five runs down to beat the Atlanta Braves 9-7 on Thursday.

''The first one's always the tough one,'' Kimbrel said.

Called up from Triple-A earlier in the day, Kimbrel struck out Brian McCann looking and induced a groundout from Johan Camargo to start the ninth inning. Ronald Acuna Jr. then hit a ground-rule double into Wrigley Field's ivy, and Dansby Swanson walked on four pitches.

Freddie Freeman grounded sharply down the first base line, and Rizzo fielded and had to dive for the bag to beat Freeman after Kimbrel failed to cover first.

''I feel like I'm still ramping up a little bit'' Kimbrel said. ''It might be a little bit until I'm full bore with all I got, but right now it felt pretty good.''

Kimbrel earned his 334th career save and did it against his original team. The Cubs finalized a $43 million, three-year contract with 31-year-old free agent on June 7, then sent the right-hander to the minors to get himself ready.

He hadn't pitched in the majors since facing the Dodgers in the World Series as a member of the Boston Red Sox.

Victor Caratini's two-run homer capped the Cubs' four-run fifth inning that put them ahead for good. Kyle Schwarber also went deep for the Chicago, which got three RBIs from Jason Heyward on a warm day at Wrigley Field with steady wind blowing out to left.

Freeman hit his 22nd homer, a two-run shot, and Ozzie Albies continued to feast on Cubs pitching with a solo drive and single for two RBIs. Swanson drove in three in the final regular season game between the NL Central and NL East leaders.

Freeman had a hunch he'd face Kimbrel, his teammate in Atlanta from 2010-14.

''Things were just kind of going to fall into place for him to get into the game,'' Freeman said. ''Craig looked good. I think he was in the 98 (mph) area today.''

Chicago starter Tyler Chatwood (4-1) escaped with the win despite allowing six runs, six hits and four walks through five innings. Josh Tomlin (1-1) took the loss after Atlanta starter Bryse Wilson allowed six runs (four earned) in 4 1/3 innings after being called up from Triple-A.

Chatwood made his third start this season and second in a week as the Cubs juggled their rotation with Kyle Hendricks still sidelined.

Schwarber lined his fifth career leadoff homer to right in the first to put Chicago ahead 1-0. Albies' RBI single in the second tied it.

The Braves jumped ahead 4-1 in the third.

Swanson's double to the left-center gap drove in Acuna from first. Freeman followed with a two-run, opposite-field shot to the front row of the left field bleachers.

Swanson drove in two more with a single to center to extend Atlanta's lead to 6-1.

Chicago came back with three runs the bottom half. Two scored on Heyward's single and a third on a Wilson's wild pitch.

The Cubs scored four times in the fifth on a rally capped by Caratini's line shot to right of Tomlin to take an 8-6 lead.

Albies homered off Steve Cishek in the sixth, but Daniel Descalso came home on Tomlin's wild pitch in the bottom half.

LIMITATIONS

Cubs manager Joe Maddon says he won't use Kimbrel for ''more than three outs early on.'' On Thursday, he nailed it down after relievers Steve Cishek, Brandon Kintzler and Pedro Strop each tossed an inning.

Kimbrel pitched in four games for Iowa, allowing one run and two hits in 3 2/3 innings.

50/50

The Cubs and Braves split the four-game series in Chicago, but Atlanta took five of seven for the season.

ROSTER MOVES

The Braves made room for Wilson by optioning RHP Kyle Wright (0-2, 7.07) to Triple-A Gwinnett. To make space for Kimbrel, the Cubs optioned RHP Tony Barnette to Triple-A Iowa. Barnette (0-0, 6.75 ERA) made two relief appearances after coming off the 60-day IL on Sunday.

TRAINER'S ROOM:

Cubs: Hendricks (right shoulder inflammation) said he felt ''real good'' after throwing a 30-pitch bullpen session Wednesday and expects to toss a 45-pitch bullpen Saturday. Hendricks, whose treatment has included a cortisone shot after going on the IL on June 15, wasn't sure about his return date. Maddon said it's possible Hendricks (7-5, 3.36) could rejoin the rotation before the All-Star break.

UP NEXT

Braves: RHP Mike Soroka (8-1, 2.07) faces Mets RHP Jacob deGrom (4-6, 3.25) in the opener of a three-game series in New York on Friday.

Cubs: LHP Cole Hamels (6-2, 2.92) takes the mound at Cincinnati against Sonny Gray (3-5. 4.03) on Friday.
