SHARE Anthony Rizzo doesn’t take kindly to being thrown at by Cardinals

With his team trailing 8-3 in the seventh inning at Wrigley Field, St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Matt Belisle threw a pitch behind Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo.

Rizzo did not take kindly to the pitch thrown at his knees and took a couple steps toward the mound as Belisle was being thrown out of the game.

Earlier in the game, Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday was hit in the head by a Dan Haren pitch in the fifth inning.

The pitch thrown behind Rizzo appeared to be retaliation for Holliday being plunked.
