CHICAGO (AP) — Kris Bryant and Miguel Montero had consecutive RBI doubles in the sixth as the Chicago Cubs extended Shelby Miller's winless skid to 16 games with a 5-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Friday.

Anthony Rizzo added an RBI single in the seventh for Chicago.

Jason Motte (8-1) earned the win in relief, starting a string of four innings during which Cubs relievers didn't allow a hit until pinch-hitter Nick Swisher doubled with one out in the ninth off of closer Hector Rondon.

London recovered to earn his 22nd save in 26 opportunities.

Miller (5-10) dropped his career-high ninth straight decision. Miller only allowed two hits, including Chris Coghlan's solo homer, over the first five innings, but gave up five runs overall — three earned — after the Braves made a pair of critical errors.
