Seiya Suzuki clobbered a home run for the second straight game and erupted for four hits Tuesday, helping the Chicago Cubs outslug the San Francisco Giants 11-8 for their third consecutive win.

Suzuki's 16th homer tied the game at 6-6 in the seventh inning when he pulled submariner Tyler Rogers' 3-1 slider to left for a two-run shot at Wrigley Field with one out.

"I'm not really good against those pitchers, but I thought I had the best chance of hitting one off his slider," Suzuki said. "I managed to connect on a fat pitch at the end. I'm feeding off the team's (good) atmosphere at the moment."

A fielder's choice and Christopher Morel's three-run homer saw the Cubs score six runs in the inning and lead for good. Suzuki drove in his team's final run in the eighth with a single.

Suzuki singled and came home in the third when the Cubs scored four runs to lead 4-3, and also doubled in the fifth as he went 4-for-5.
