"I’m statistically the greatest hitter of all time to lead the game off," Rizzo said to reporters after Wednesday's loss. "I’d like to retire there and talk smack to everyone who tries to do it. But you just go with it. It’s fun. Go back-to-back, and the dugout is very loose. Statistically, by the books, I’m the best there ever was right now."

Rizzo became the first Cubs player in history to hit homers in his first two games leading off.
