Rizzo went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's win over the Cardinals. Rizzo made his lone hit count, connecting for his seventh home run of the season in the sixth inning. The slugging first baseman isn't delivering his usual power production, though he's chugging along with a .308 batting average this month. If he keeps making consistent contact, expect more balls to leave the yard in short order.
Rizzo went 2-for-3 with a home run, double, two runs and four RBI in Tuesday's 7-1 triumph over the Padres. Rizzo laced a two-run double as part of a four-run sixth and later launched a two-run home run the next inning to extend the lead to 7-0. The long ball was a welcome sight as it was only the veteran first baseman's sixth all season and his first since May 2. While Rizzo's on base and average are near his career rates, a .445 slugging is well below a career .483.
Rizzo went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Monday's loss to the Padres. Rizzo has recorded hits in five of the Cubs' last eight games and has posted three multi-hit games in that span, though the lack of power has been an issue for the first baseman -- he's gone 25 straight games without a dinger and has gone yard just five times all year long. He's hitting .261 with a .775 OPS on the season.
Rizzo went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, two RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's 6-1 win over San Diego. In the fifth inning, Rizzo put the Cubs ahead with a two-RBI double. The first baseman has gone 5-for-8 in two games since he returned from back stiffness. For the year, he's slashing .275/.377/.455 with five home runs, 21 RBI, 22 runs scored and three stolen bases across 199 plate appearances.
Rizzo (back) is in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Padres after missing the previous six games. Rizzo said earlier Tuesday that he expected to be back in the lineup, and now he's officially slated to bat third and play first base against the Friars.
