5/25 Anthony Rizzo UPDATE

Anthony Rizzo ended his 0-for-23 skid with a RBI double in the third inning Saturday. Rizzo then scored on Alfonso Soriano’s single. Dale Sveum had been asked pre game if he thought about giving Rizzo a day off.

“About the time you start thinking about it, the guy gets hot,” Sveum said. “These are your core players who have to understand and deal with adversity. ABout the time you start thinking about [a day off], there goes two home runs. They are still threats in the lineup whether they’re hitting sometimes or not. They’re doing other things to help you win a ballgame.”
