Anthony Rizzo channeled his inner George Brett.
In the leadoff hole, the young Cubs star began Chicago’s game against the Pirates Friday night with a home run.
But after a review, umpires ruled it foul.
That’s when Rizzo exploded.
He wasn’t tossed from the game, despite yelling more than a few expletives, but Cubs manager Joe Maddon was for screaming at the umps over the ruling.
It would have been Rizzo’s third home run of the week, all in his first three career appearances at the top of a lineup.
