CHICAGO — Going down to one knee for a sweet swing, Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo smacked a solo shot out to right field on Friday night. The dinger put the Cubs up 3-0 over the Milwaukee Brewers at Wrigley Field.

Although Rizzo was hit in the hand with a pitch earlier in the game, he was not fazed in his eighth inning at-bat. The 386-footer cleared the wall in right field, coming on a fastball thrown by the Brewers' J.P. Feyereisen.
