Despite Rizzo injury, Cubs look to ensure playoff spot against Reds

The Chicago Cubs will go for their fifth straight win when they host the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night to open a three-game series.

But Chicago (81-68) might be distracted as it tries to close the gap on the St. Louis Cardinals for first place in the National League Central. Veteran first baseman Anthony Rizzo sprained his right ankle on Sunday, and the team will learn more about the severity of the injury when Rizzo undergoes an MRI before Monday's game.

"It's not ideal," Cubs outfielder Kyle Schwarber told reporters. "The guy's been a staple in the middle of the lineup for years now."
