Watch: Cubs pitcher tells Anthony Rizzo to shut up after diving catch
WGN cameras caught Chicago Cubs reliever Justin Wilson telling teammate Anthony Rizzo to shut up on Friday.
Wilson was pitching for the Cubs in the bottom of the seventh against the Cincinnati Reds. He put the first three batters on and surrendered a run to make it 5-3 before helping himself out with a diving catch on a bunt.
During a meeting at the mound following the catch, Wilson could be seen telling Rizzo to “shut up.”

Maybe Rizzo helped loosen up Wilson, because he responded by getting a double play ball to end the inning.
The Cubs lost 6-3, but Rizzo helped keep things light.
