CHICAGO (AP) Before Friday's game against San Diego, a 9-year-old boy named Mateo met Anthony Rizzo in the Chicago Cubs' dugout and gave him a note asking for a "moonshot" on behalf of group attending a charity running event of the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation this weekend.

Rizzo followed with a go-ahead grand slam, his first home run since June 15.

"That was for him," Rizzo, a Hodgkin's lymphoma survivor, said after the Cubs overcame a three-run deficit to beat the Padres 6-5. "That's really special for him to come and hang out there."
