Chicago Cubs: Anthony Rizzo on fire in midst of 12-game hit streak

With the Chicago Cubs winners in four of their last five after snapping a four-game losing skid, a major reason has been due to the recent offensive production from first baseman Anthony Rizzo. Rizzo, who is batting .296 on the year, is currently in the middle of a 12-game hitting streak, and has hit a […] The post Chicago Cubs: Anthony Rizzo on fire in midst of 12-game hit streak appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Reds 7, Cubs 5: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Reds 7, Cubs 5: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This game made no sense. The Cubs didn’t appear to have the right game plan for this one, a 7-5 loss to the Reds. Kyle Schwarber leading off the game? Out on one pitch. Kris Bryant, following Schwarber? Out on one pitch. Anthony Rizzo managed to stretch Bronson Arroyo all the way to five pitches before he, too, made an out. With a guy throwing 68 mile-per-hour curveballs, why wouldn’t you be a little more patient and wait for better pitches to hit? Rizzo got one in the fourth inning after a single by Bryant and smacked a two-run homer [VIDEO]. Your browser does not support HTML5...

Chicago Cubs vs. Cincinnati Reds Preview, Sunday 4/23, 12:10 CT

The Cubs have a shot at their first series sweep of 2017. The last time the Cubs swept a series, it was against the Reds, last September 19-20-21 at Wrigley Field. They've got a pretty good chance to do that again in this series. While the Reds did get off to a good start this year, it's pretty clear that they still don't really have the pitching to compete in the division. So, this would be a good time to pick up another win, and the three-game sweep. Fun fact from Saturday's game: The Cubs’ #3 hitter, Anthony Rizzo, hit a three-run home run in the top of the first inning on Saturday...

Cubs 12, Reds 8: If It’s Cincinnati, The Cubs Are Hitting Home Runs

Cubs 12, Reds 8: If It’s Cincinnati, The Cubs Are Hitting Home Runs

The Cubs again brought out the big lumber against the Reds. Last year, the Cubs set a franchise record for most home runs against a single team in a single year by hitting 42 against the Reds. This year, they’re off to a good start on matching that. They’ve hit four home runs in the first two games against the Reds this year. Three of those baseballs left the yard at Great American Ball Park on Saturday as the Cubs cruised to a 12-8 win, their fourth consecutive victory. The first home run was hit by Anthony Rizzo, a three-run shot in the first inning, his second three-run homer in as...

Cubs 6, Reds 5: The Comeback Cubs Do It Again

Anthony Rizzo’s three-run homer in the ninth set up the Cubs for an extra-inning win. Last year, the Cubs were well-known for blowing away opponents. Within their first 16 games (as far as we are into 2017), the 2016 Cubs had won games by 9-0, 14-6, 9-2, 8-1 and 16-0. This year? Jim Deshaies touched on it late in Friday night’s broadcast, noting that every year is different, even though the ballclub has most of the same personnel. I was thinking just this when he called them the “Cardiac Cubs,” and that’s the way they’ve won each of their last three games, spotting their...
