CHICAGO — After struggling with a back ailment in recent weeks, Chicago Cubs slugger Anthony Rizzo returned to action for the "Summer Camp" finale on Wednesday. In the bottom of the first, Rizzo crushed a towering 2-run bomb at Wrigley Field.

Ian Happ led off with a base knock, and Rizzo followed that up by taking Minnesota Twins starter Homer Bailey deep to right. The 422-foot bomb provided the Cubs with an early 2-0 advantage.
