Rizzo Dinger 2016

The Cubs flashed some power last night to go along with yet another solid performance from one of their starters.  This time it was Jon Lester benefiting from three Cubs dingers as he breezed through the Angels lineup en route to picking up his first win of the season.  Dexter Fowler, Matt Szczur, and Anthony Rizzo all found the seats as the Cubs torched the Angels 6-1 to move their record to 2-0 for the first time since 1995.
