PITTSBURGH — Going yard for the second straight night against the Pittsburgh Pirates, Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo walloped a 404-foot blast on an 0-2 count. The solo dinger provided the Cubs with 1-0 lead in the top of the first on Wednesday.

Sailing out to right-center, Rizzo's 11th long ball of the season was hit off changeup thrown by Pirates starter Trevor Williams. The tater at PNC Park left the bat at 104 mph and upped Rizzo's RBI total to 24.
