Cubs use 4-run 2nd to top O's

Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Chris Coghlan hit a bases-clearing triple as part of a four-run second inning and the Chicago Cubs beat the Baltimore Orioles, 7-2, in the middle test of a three-game set.

A 3-hour, 9-minute rain delay followed Chicago's four-run second.

Javier Baez smacked a solo homer, while Justin Grimm (4-2) fired 3 1/3 scoreless innings following the delay to earn the win for the Cubs, who have won five of their last seven games.

Bud Norris (11-8) allowed four runs on four hits and a walk over the first two frames for Baltimore, which has dropped two straight on the heels of a four- game winning streak.
