CHICAGO — Fighting through the pain for the sake of his team, Chicago Cubs Anthony Rizzo legged out a double in the bottom of the second on Saturday. With the Cubs taking on the St. Louis Cardinals at Wrigley Field, Rizzo hit a drive between left and center field that resulted in his 29th 2-bagger of the season.

Even with a bum ankle, Rizzo was able to hustle to second base for the 1-out double. Rizzo wisely slid into the bag with his injured left leg tucked underneath his healthy right leg. "Big Rizz" grimaced in pain after the adrenaline wore off. Unfortunately for his sake, he was left stranded in the inning.
