Rizzo homers twice and the Philly Phanatic scares one young fan (0:46)

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

Joe Maddon made sure to praise home plate umpire and crew chief Jeff Nelson on Wednesday calling him one of the best in the game. But Maddon believes MLB should review the rule which led to Jason Heyward being called out at first base for interference, apparently for veering onto the grass and interfering with a throw. The play was very close and helped thwart a possible big inning by the Cubs.

It got dicey in the ninth but the Cubs held on to beat the Giants 5-4 after Wade Davis gave up a 2-run HR in the ninth inning, his first earned runs given up this season. It took him 34 pitches to get through the inning as an insurance run in the eighth was the difference. Jason Heyward scored after tripling to open the inning. Anthony Rizzo was the hitting star as he homered twice and was on base 4 times.

Cubs' road trip to highlight '70s, 'Anchorman'

Continuing what is now a couture tradition within the Cubs' clubhouse, manager Joe Maddon and the players will wear 1970s fashions and pay homage to the Will Ferrell flick "Anchorman" on the team's road trip to California.

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

Joe Maddon has been wanting a Ron Burgundy themed trip when heading out west so this weekend his players will don 70's clothes. Maddon thinks Tommy La Stella would make a good Brick Tamland, the weather man in the Anchorman movies: "They're like two interchangeable guys. I see Brick, I see Tommy. I see Tommy, I see Brick. Put some glasses on Tommy, some sideburns, I got Brick."
