CHICAGO — Back in the cleanup spot on Wednesday after leading off for several weeks, Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo slugged a two-run home run to break a scoreless drought for the Cubs against the Milwaukee Brewers. Having been shut out three straight times by the Brewers, the Cubs took a 2-0 lead to end that stretch.

With his 18th home run of the year, Rizzo took Brewers pitcher Junior Guerra deep with two outs in the opening inning. Scoring third baseman David Bote, who kept the inning alive with a single in the previous at-bat, Rizzo lined an opposite-field shot just over the wall in left field.

Celebrating the dinger in hilarious fashion, the Cubs' relief-pitching staff played a quick game of duck, duck, goose in the bullpen to mark perhaps their most creative homer celebration to date.
