Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo had one of the more heads up plays of the night.

With one out in the top of the seventh inning, Mets pitcher Matt Harvey tried to lay down a sacrifice bunt and popped it up to Rizzo.

The “Rizzo Bear Dance” has the Twitter world dancingRizzo faked out Harvey, who didn’t run to first, let the ball drop and turned the double play.

The double play got the Cubs out of the seventh inning, the Mets didn’t score another run and the Cubs won the game in dramatic fashion.
