PHOENIX — With his first home run in the month of July, Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo smacked a go-ahead solo shot against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday. Rizzo took ace left-hander Madison Bumgarner deep at Chase Field with a 413-foot jack to right-center.

Rizzo's 11th homer and 34th RBI of the season, the dinger provided the North Siders with a 2-1 lead over the D-backs in the top of the fourth. The one-out blast came on an 0-2 count, with "Big Rizz" sending a 77.4-mph slider into the seats. The round-tripper left the bat at 99.6-mph and 28 degrees.
