Batting leadoff, Rizzo homers as Cubs roll

Batting leadoff, Rizzo homers as Cubs roll”

NY has a few key hitters as well this year.

Matt Harvey will make the start for the Mets in the final game of the series on Wednesday. Admittedly implemented just for fun to try to give the Cubs a spark, Rizzo went 2-for-4, including an 0-2 to 4-2 walk that extended the inning prior to Ian Happ's second inning grand slam. Wheeler gave up just eight runs in his previous four starts, a span of 24 1/3 innings.

"If everything is in place and in order I probably would not have done that", Maddon explained. "He's going to have a bad one and tonight was it". They touched him up for eight runs in 1 1/2 innings as they cruised to a 14-3 win at Citi Field.

With three seasons plus an option remaining on his Cubs contract, manager Joe Maddon figures Tuesday night's milestone won't be the last one Lester reaches.

"They all looked better", Maddon said. In Tuesday's game, Chicago got revenge by scoring seven runs in the second inning en route to a 14-3 win. Rizzo finished 2-for-4 with three RBI and will bat leadoff again on Wednesday. "When it's all said and done, well go home and sit on the couch and reflect on the whole deal, see where we're at".

Chicago Cubs' Jon Lester delivers a pitch during the first inning of a baseball game against the New York Mets Tuesday, June 13, 2017, in New York.

Lester allowed only five hits and a run - three hits in six scoreless innings after the first.

NATIONALS 10, BRAVES 5: At Washington, Ryan Zimmerman hit his 18th and 19th home runs of the season in his return from back soreness and the Nationals scored five runs in the sixth inning against R.A. Dickey to beat Atlanta. "It's tough and really puts the bullpen on notice a lot", Collins told reporters following Friday night's game. Lester will bring a 4.13 ERA and 1.35 WHIP into a road start against the Mets next time he toes the rubber.

Rizzo is the seventh different Cub to bat in the leadoff spot this season as Maddon searches for a combination to ignite an offense that entered Tuesday's game 15th in the majors in runs and 21st in OPS after being third in the league a year ago in both categories. Montgomery has never faced the Mets.
