Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo: 'We're Not Going To Lose 100 Games'

The Chicago Cubs have struggled all year and are currently sitting 30 games under .500, but rookie first baseman Anthony Rizzo has vowed that the club won't lose 100 games, according to Doug Padilla of ESPNChicago.

With just 32 games remaining on the schedule, 19 of which will be played against the NL West-leading San Francisco Giants (two games), NL East-leading Washington Nationals (four games), NL Central-leading Cincinnati Reds (three games) and NL Wild Card contenders the St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates (three and seven games, respectively), Rizzo and the Cubs have their work cut out for them.

Rizzo remains confident and hopeful.

"The last month we want to win," he said. "We want to play .500 baseball in September and everybody in here wants to finish strong. It’s cliché but we want to build as much momentum in September to take into spring training and move forward."

The Cubs have only lost 100 games twice in the club's 136-year history.
