Rizzo homers in Cubs’ 6-4 loss to Cardinals
Question of the Day
it begins with first-year manager Rick Renteria.
“He’s very upbeat, very positive,” Rizzo said. “We’ve been staying in games and we know we’re good and capable of winning them.”
“A lot of it is guys improving,” Rizzo said. “And we’ve got some new faces. You’ve got to keep grinding in close games and eventually we’re going to flip it around and win some close ones.
“I’m still very positive,” Rizzo said.
“Every day we’re in it until the end,” Renteria said. “If we keep pushing, at some point, it’s got to turn. I think if we were playing really bad baseball, I’d be concerned. But the reality is, we’re showing a lot of fight and we’re picking each other up.”
St. Louis has won four of six.
Rain has figured in all three of Wacha’s starts this season. He actually seemed to embrace a third-inning downpour that halted play against the Cubs.
“I’m used to it,” he said. “You just have to accept it and you’ve got to stay focused. I tried to stay loose and just keep my mind in what I needed to do.”
Wacha (2-0) allowed three runs and five hits in 6 1-3 innings Sunday. He gave up a two-run homer to Rizzo on the 16th pitch of the game, but yielded just one run on three hits the rest of the way. He struck out eight and walked one.
“At the start, I was a little erratic, but I was able to settle down a little bit,” he said. “I got some quick innings and some quick outs.”
