WATCH: Anthony Rizzo snags foul ball while leaning over dugout railing

ST. LOUIS — Giving his buddy Kris Bryant a run for his money after Bryant pulled off a similar defensive feat earlier in the game, Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo hauled in a great catch in foul territory at Busch Stadium on Wednesday. In the bottom of the seventh, Rizzo outed Yairo Munoz by way of the impressive snag.

Munoz skied a popup into foul territory, and Rizzo raced after it. The trajectory of the baseball's descent was right on line with the Cardinals' dugout, but Rizzo was not fazed, as he leaned over the dugout railing and gloved a backhanded catch in the vicinity of several rival Redbirds.
