Fun Fact: With his homer in yesterday's game, Anthony Rizzo broke his personal best for consecutive games with a home run. He previously had hit a homer in three consecutive games between April 30 and May 3, 2014.

Writer's Note: The daily selections of the three Heroes and three Goats are based solely on the top three and bottom three WPA scores for the game. The selections are not based on my subjective opinion.

THE THREE HEROES:

  • Superhero - Anthony Rizzo (.297). Seriously making up for lost time after those 11 gams away from the Hero podium between July 12 and July 26.
  • Hero - Kyle Hendricks (.236). A very solid outing, and probably could have taken the top of the podium if not for the run allowed in the fourth.
  • Sidekick - Kyle Schwarber (.099). If I could give him bonus points for his at-bat in the third, I would.

THE THREE GOATS: Another bump on the Goat podium as Hendricks' -.048 hitting is moved out. It's the 24th pitcher hitting bump on the season and the 21st from the Goats.

  • Billy Goat - Starlin Castro (-.062). A couple of grounders to short with runners on.
  • Goat - Addison Russell (-.046). Couldn't get the flyout to left to complete the trifecta of flyouts.
  • Kid - Chris Coghlan (-.045). He did have a walk in the game, but erased it with his 4-6-3 a couple of innings later.
RANKINGS THROUGH GAME 103 ("x" indicates player not on active roster):
Rizzo continues his climb toward his high-water mark for the season, while Castro sets a new low-water mark on the other side.
