Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo jumped onto a wall and plucked a foul ball from above a group of fans at Wrigley Field during a game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.

 

Rizzo leapt atop the side wall with both feet just past the tarp, leaned into the crowd and made a circus catch of Keon Broxton's foul pop. He then dismounted back onto the field standing up and broke into a wide smile.

The Wrigley Field crowd followed with "MVP, MVP" chants.

 

Fans were still buzzing and stood and cheered for the All-Star after the final out of the fifth.

 

>>Brewers Slugger Braun Leaves Game After Crashing Into Wall

 

Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun has limped off the field in the second game of a doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs after crashing into the wall trying to catch a foul ball.

 

Braun crumpled feet-first into the side wall at Wrigley Field in the fourth inning Tuesday night as Ben Zobrist's fly fell out of his reach. Braun was slow to get up as the trainer and manager Craig Counsell ran out to check on him.

 

Braun got to his feet and flexed his left knee several times before walking to the dugout under his own power. Ramon Flores replaced him.

 

Braun was the second Brewer to leave the game with an injury. Starting pitcher Chase Anderson left after two batters with a bruised quadriceps when he took Kris Bryant's liner off his left leg.
