Rizzo Leads The Charge In Cubs 15-5 Win Over The Reds


Mesoraco suffered the injury during Monday night's game against the Chicago Cubs after being hit by a pitch in the foot in the top of the second inning by Cubs right-hander Jose Quintana.

The Cincinnati Reds first baseman is just having a little fun with Chicago Cubs fans - instead of tossing the foul ball gingerly to the crowd, he chose to chuck it out of Wrigley Field.

Cubs reliever Mike Montgomery doubled in two runs with one out in a six-run seventh off Reds reliever Drew Storen.

Hendricks, making his fifth start since coming off the disabled list on July 24, allowed five hits while walking four and striking out six through six-plus innings.

After Votto walked for the third time and advanced to third on Adam Duvall's single off reliever Pedro Strop (3-3), Gennett smacked a line drive to right that Jason Heyward caught on the run. With games upcoming against the Blue Jays, the Reds in Cincinnati and the Phillies in Philadelphia, this would be a ideal time for the Cubs to make their move.

Price said an X-ray revealed a possible left foot fracture and that Mesoraco would return to Cincinnati on Tuesday for a MRI.
