He's now hit safely in a career-high 14 straight games. Rizzo will not face any suspension or fine following Monday's home plate collision with Padres C Austin Hedges. But Major League Baseball did conclude that Rizzo's slide violated baseball's home plate collision rules.
Tue Jun 2003:431B Anthony RIzzo 2-3 with triple, bunt single and RBI sacrifice

1B Anthony Rizzo went 3-for-5 with his 16th homer, two RBIs and three runs scored, tying his career high with a 12-game hitting streak. He is now 5-for-5 leading off games as he batted first for the fifth time in a row and fifth time of his career. "If we win ballgames, I'll be the leadoff hitter for the rest of my career," Rizzo said, smiling. "But no, the objective is the pitchers are going to throw strike one. They want to get into a groove. You've got to be ready to hit."
Sat Jun 1703:541B Anthony Rizzo 1-4 with two-run single in ninth
1B Anthony Rizzo was 1-for-4 with a two-run single in the ninth. He also walked and scored in the first, but that could have been a bigger inning for him. He led off the game with a blast to right field that cleared the seating and one-bounced into the Allegheny River. It was initially called a homer, then reversed by the umpires to a foul ball. Cubs manager Joe Maddon was so livid that the initial call did not stand and was not reviewed that he argued until he got ejected. Rizzo thought it was the wrong call. "That was absolutely a home run," he said. "There is no way it could have gone over the pole foul because this is one of the shortest right fields in the league. I hit it too hard for it to have time to go foul. I respect the umpires and I never like to criticize them because I know they give their very best, but they got that one. At least we won the game and that's all that really matters."
Thu Jun 1515:31Struggling Cubs still have time in NL Central
NEW YORK -- The defending World Series champion Chicago Cubs are underwater.They suffered a 9-4 loss to the Mets at Citi Field on Wednesday night to fall to 32-33. At this point a year ago, they were 45-20.This defeat was particularly stinging. The Cubs held a 4-1 lead on Kyle Shwarber's two-run home run in the top of the fourth inning, and their relief pitchers, to date the best-functioning part of the organization, gave up six runs in four innings.Chicago is fortunate to be playing in the NL Central. They go into play on Thursday in second place, just two games behind the Milwaukee Brewers. They are eight games off the pace for the second wild card."We've earned the right to be in this position. We've played well enough to be a .500 club," manager Joe Maddon said. "We have a nice group and I believe in our group, but we have to prove it on the field."Anthony Rizzo said, "We're battling, grinding and that's what it is until we take off. ... I don't think it's too late. "Go back to 201... [More]

1B Anthony Rizzo continued to take a liking to the leadoff spot Wednesday, when he led the game off with a homer for the second straight game in the Cubs' 9-4 loss to the Mets. Rizzo, who never started a big league game at leadoff before Tuesday, homered on the second pitch he saw Tuesday before going deep against Mets RHP Matt Harvey on the first pitch Wednesday night. Manager Joe Maddon indicated Tuesday that he wasn't committed to using Rizzo in the leadoff spot beyond the series against the Mets that ended Wednesday, though his immediate success there could change Maddon's plans. The homer was the only hit in five at-bats Wednesday for Rizzo, who is batting .252 with 15 homers, 41 RBIs and five stolen bases in 64 games this season.

1B Anthony Rizzo made his first career appearance in the leadoff spot a memorable one Tuesday night, when he homered on the second pitch he saw in the first inning and finished 2-for-4 with three RBIs in the Cubs' 14-3 win over the Mets. Manager Joe Maddon hoped batting Rizzo first would spark an offense that scored just 13 runs in the previous five games, and Rizzo made Maddon look prescient by homering on to the black tarp beyond centerfield. He also extended a seven-run second inning by drawing a bases-loaded, two-out walk immediately before 2B Ian Happ hit a grand slam. Rizzo laced an RBI double in the third inning before grounding into a double play in the fifth inning and flying out in his final at-bat in the seventh inning. Maddon said he would bat Rizzo leadoff again in Wednesday's series finale. Rizzo is batting .253 with 14 homers, 40 RBIs and five stolen bases in 63 games this season.
