LOS ANGELES — Putting the Chicago Cubs on the scoreboard, first baseman Anthony Rizzo led off the fourth inning of Saturday's game at Dodger Stadium with a 415-foot blast. The dinger off Los Angeles Dodgers starter Julio Urias sailed out to right-center field in a hurry, making the score 2-1 in favor of the Dodgers.

Rizzo's 10th long ball of the year, the solo shot was scorched off the bat at 111.8 mph. It also sported a launch angle of 22 degrees. Urias gave up the home run on a 92.7-mph four-seamer. Rizzo increased his season RBI total to 32 by way of the bomb, which was the Cubs' second hit of the contest.
