Cubs slugger Anthony Rizzo is back in the leadoff spot which is the 22th time in his career. Yesterday, he was 5-for-7 in two games with a triple, RBI, run scored, and three walks. He is the first leadoff for the Cubs to reach 8 times in a doubleheader since Ivan DeJesus in 1979 according to MLB insider Carrie Muskat.
