Rizzo’s Bomb Propels Iowa to Victory

With the I-Cubs trailing 5-2 in the bottom of the 8th inning Anthony Rizzo launched a game tying three-run homer, shortly after that the I-Cubs walked off in the ninth inning with the win, 6-5 over Round Rock.  The Rizzo – Jackson connection continued to tear the cover off the ball Sunday afternoon.  Jackson went 2-5 with an RBI double, and a run scored to go along with the previously mentioned Anthony Rizzo bomb.  Jackson is hitting .438 so far this season, and Rizzo is hitting at a .375 clip.  Jeff Beliveau turned in his second straight outstanding performance out of the bullpen going two innings, and striking out four guys.
