Rizzo won't comment on suspended game

CHICAGO -- Before Wednesday's game against the San Francisco Giants, Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo was diplomatic about the notion the San Francisco Giants probably didn't get a fair outcome when umpires declared the Cubs winners the night before in a 4 1/2-inning game that was called because of unplayable conditions after a 15-minute downpour and a 4-hour, 34-minute delay. "I can see why they are very upset, but it's the rule," Rizzo said before the Cubs lost to the Giants 8-3 on Wednesday night.

Baez, Rizzo go deep; Cubs beat Brewers

CHICAGO – Javy Baez and Anthony Rizzo hit back-to-back home runs as the Cubs defeated Kyle Lohse and the Milwaukee Brewers, 4-2, Wednesday night.

Javier Baez hits one to the street

CHICAGO -- Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo isn't one to get caught up in the hoopla about the future of his team. Even as things are going better, he's sticking to the day-to-day, except he let himself slip after the Cubs beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2 on Wednesday night. He and stud prospect Javier Baez hit back-to-back home runs in the third inning of the win. "We just want to keep getting more everyday guys," Rizzo said of the Cubs' rebuild.

Anthony Rizzo’s winner nice after Cubs set record for Ks

Anthony Rizzo didn’t change his plate approach in the 12th inning Sunday when the Tampa Bay Rays deployed a five-man infield with Cubs runners at first and third with one out. ‘‘I knew I had to put the ball in the air, and I’m a fly-ball hitter,’’ Rizzo said. His solid fly single to left against lefty Cesar Ramos (2-4) drove in Ryan Sweeney for a 3-2 victory, the only win for the Cubs in the three-game series. The Cubs had 13 hits but stranded 11 as they...

Cubs' Rizzo gets day off vs. left-hander

DENVER -- Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo was given the day off as his team goes for the series win against the Colorado Rockies on Thursday. Rizzo will get his second day off of the season as the Cubs face left-hander Yohan Flande. "It's tough to convince guys who want to play every single day [to rest] no matter what park they are at. Especially this park," Renteria said. Rizzo is batting .182 through five games of this West Coast road trip and went hitless in the first two games at Coors Field.

Jose Abreu vs. Anthony Rizzo closer than you think

In a season in which both of Chicago’s major-league baseball teams are below .500 and well behind the leaders, the silver linings have come in individual performances. The two first basemen, the White Sox’ Jose Abreu and the Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo, have been golden. By traditional Triple Crown numbers, Abreu ranks with the best in baseball, hitting .304 and leading the majors with 31 home runs and 84 RBI through Sunday. Rizzo was a couple of steps behind that at...

Another Reason Rizzo Would Have Been Good

Red Sox fans are continually reminded of one prospect that got away—Anthony Rizzo of Theo Epstein's Chicago Cubs. Rizzo has blossomed into the all-around quality major-leaguer Boston player development geeks said he would become. Unfortunately, he was the major chip used to get Adrian Gonzalez (a move we heartily supported at the time). Rizzo floundered in San Diego, but this year he is now a force on The North Side of The Second City—hitting .286 with 25 HRs (along with a .391 OBP and .441 SLG). But Boston's sixth-round pick of 2007 has recently done something that would have made him an...
