Cubs know Rizzo will have bumps in the road
PITTSBURGH -- Cubs rookie Anthony Rizzo had a tough game on Tuesday, striking out three times against the Pirates. It was his first multi-strikeout game, but the Pirates made it tough. The left-handed hitter had to face a lefty pitcher each at-bat.

"Obviously, you want better at-bats," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said, "but that's part of the learning process, especially facing specialist left-handers.

"The starters in the big leagues are the best in the world," Sveum said. "When you're playing in this game, you make adjustments here and there. More important, the experience alone is the valuable thing in all of this -- it's the experience you gain going into the rest of your career."
