He singled to start the game, hit a sacrifice fly in the third and tripled to lead off the sixth, even though the Cubs failed to score in that inning.

Green will allow "people above me" possibly contacting Major League Baseball officials about reviewing a play he said he "doesn't feel good about". Pick a side on that one and you'll have your answer.

Anthony Rizzo can't predict how long he will remain as the Cubs resident lead off man.

In a rally Monday, the hots bats of Anthony Rizzo and Willson Contreras ignited the recently resurgent Cubs offense. On Monday, Chicago climbed back over that mark with a 3-2 win against San Diego at Wrigley Field that upped its mark to 35-34.

But one thing is certain: He's going to play it for everything it's worth. Padres manager Andy Green called it a "cheap shot" while Rizzo defended it as a "hard" play. "I'm not saying he's a dirty player, nobody's saying that (but) he clearly deviated from his path to hit our catcher". "I've talked to a lot of umpires about this rule".

Manager Joe Maddon has tried just about everything to get his defending world champions to rise above the mediocrity they've achieved so far this season.

"I don't, by no means, think that's a dirty play at all..."

"I'd much prefer what Rizz did tonight". I slid in there. "There's nothing wrong with that and nobody can tell me differently".

Rizzo, playing this sixth game in the leadoff spot, extended his hitting streak to a career-high 13 games.

The Padres (28-43) dropped their second straight and third in four games despite homers from leadoff batter Jose Pirela and second baseman Yangervis Solarte. Hector Rondon got the win to improve to 2-1 this season, while Wade Davis recorded his 14th save of the year. He struck out seven while walking one and allowing five hits.

Although Padres lost 2-1 to the Brewers on Sunday, Padres manager Andy Green has found the ideal combinations for their starts for the future. Jon Jay will bump over to right field while Kyle Schwarber returns to the lineup and starts in left.

The Cubs still managed only two runs in six-plus innings against Clayton Richard - the lefty they acquired for a dollar from the Pittsburgh Pirates' Triple-A affiliate in the middle of the 2015 season and designated for assignment last summer - after hitting into double plays in the first, second and fifth innings.
