Cubs' Rizzo sprains right ankle, set for MRI on Monday

CHICAGO (AP) Anthony Rizzo was helped off the field Sunday by a trainer and a teammate with a sprained right ankle, and Wrigley Field fell silent. With Chicago's postseason pursuit already hindered by a season-ending injury to shortstop Javier Baez, the team may now be without another star player.

For one day at least, the Cubs rallied without those lineup staples, thumping the Pittsburgh Pirates 16-6 to finish an impressive three-game sweep.

Rizzo was injured fielding a bunt at first base in the third inning. X-rays showed no fractures, and an MRI has been scheduled for Monday.
