Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Starlin Castro's RBI double in the bottom of the ninth inning lifted Chicago to a 4-3 win over San Francisco in the second edition of a four-game series from Wrigley Field.

Pinch-hitter Dioner Navarro greeted Sergio Romo (0-1) with the game-tying homer to right, and three batters later, David DeJesus singled to keep the game alive. Castro then drilled a ball to center, just beyond the reach of Angel Pagan to produce the winning run.

It rescued Kyuji Fujikawa (1-0), who entered the game with a 2-0 lead but gave up three runs in the top of the ninth.

DeJesus and Castro added solo homers for the Cubs, who lost Thursday's series opener by a 7-6 count.

Brandon Belt slugged a two-run double and Pablo Sandoval added a run-scoring hit for the Giants.
