Rizzo took Siegrist deep to right field on an 0–2 count in the bottom of the sixth inning, putting the pressure on St. Louis in a potential series-clinching game for Chicago, which leads the series 2–1. Chicago has scored all five of its runs with two outs.
Rizzo had homered off Siegrist during Monday night’s Cubs win after the lefthander was brought in specifically to face him. It was deja vu for the Cubs first baseman as his team fought to make the NLCS for the first time since 2003.
