by - Senior Editor -

Chicago Cubs slugger Anthony Rizzo hit his first major league inside-the-park home run which scored three runs in the first inning against the Reds on Wednesday afternoon. Rizzo was speeding around the bases at 18.6 MPH according to Statcast and the homer was his 19th of the season.

Billy Hamilton left the game after the ball hit him on the head on the deep fly ball to left-center field and Tyler Holt took over for him in center field.

The last Cubs inside-the-park homer was Tony Campana in 2011.
