Anthony Rizzo got his first chance to sit back and watch Sunday as he was out of the lineup for the first time since being called up to the major leagues June 26. Since a four-hit game on Monday against the Houston Astros, Rizzo has gone 4-for-23, including a 1-for-9 combined day during Saturday's doubleheader. "It's just time," manager Dale Sveum said before the finale of a four-game series against the Cincinnati Reds. "You see a little bit of frustration going on and stuff so it's letting him, for the first time, kick back, take a breather and be ready for the Milwaukee series."
