Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo continues to crush home runs this season. In the bottom of the third inning, Rizzo hit a 366-foot home run off Atlanta Braves pitcher Williams Perez.

This was Rizzo’s second home run in the last three games.

The Cubs first baseman became just the fifth left-handed batter to have multiple 25-plus home run seasons in Cubs history. Rizzo’s solo home run was his 95th career home run and passed Dave Kingman for sole possession of 24th in franchise history.

Here’s the list of lefties who have multiple 25-plus home run seasons with the Cubs:

Billy Williams (392 career home runs)

Bill Nicholson (205 career home runs)

Mark Grace (148 career home runs)

Rick Monday (106 career home runs)
