Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo went yard again Saturday.

The white-hot slugger now has one home run in each of the Cubs’ last four games. It’s the most consecutive games with a home run since Sammy Sosa had five in a row in 1998.

The four straight games with homers is a career best for Rizzo, who now has 20 home runs this season.

His homer Saturday was a three-run blast in the third inning against the Brewers at Miller Park.
