Chicago Cubs slugger Anthony Rizzo was hit by a pitch on the left forearm by former teammate Aroldis Chapman with the bases loaded to tie the game at 4-4 in the ninth inning against the Yankees.

Rizzo was in pain and took a few minutes before he walked to first base. The 98.9 MPH pitch was the third fastest hit by a pitch by a Cubs player since 2008.

Rizzo has stayed in the game to play defense in the 10th inning, but there is visible swelling in the forearm.
