Rizzo went 1-for-5 with a three-run, inside-the-park home run Wednesday against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

The first baseman drove a deep fly ball to left-center field, but did not run full speed out of the box as it looked like the ball would be caught. A near collision left Reds' outfielder Billy Hamilton injured on the ground, and Rizzo realized the ball dropped and took off full speed to come around and score. Rizzo topped out at 18.6 mph once he hit full stride and it took him 17.5 seconds to round the bases, according to Statcast. The home run was Rizzo's 19th of the season and his first career inside-the-park homer.

Rizzo is back in the lineup, playing first base and batting third against Miami on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Rizzo, who's missed the last two games due to back stiffness, is making his return for Game 3 of the Cubs-Marlins series. During his absence, Kris Bryant and Willson Contreras had been filling in for him at first base with Chris Coghlan seeing action in left field. Rizzo will resume a five-game hit streak that included two homers and five RBI when he returns.
