CHICAGO — For the second straight game, Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo got ahold of a pitch and pulled it to right for a solo home run. Naturally, the Cubs bullpen broke out the dance moves in celebration.

With a loud crack of the bat, Rizzo drove a four-seamer from Philadelphia Phillies starter Nick Pivetta 418 feet into the right-field seats. He has now hit 10 home runs on the year.

Getting out in a hurry, Rizzo's 10th homer of the season left the bat at 109 miles per hour. It also broke a scoreless tie, putting the Cubs ahead 1-0 in the fourth inning.

Rizzo climbed the Cubs' home-run hitting leaderboard with the bomb. Boasting 175 career long balls, Rizzo surpassed Andre Dawson on Thursday to move into 13th place all-time for home runs hit by a Cub.
