LOS ANGELES — During Game 5 of the National League Division Series, Cubs reserve outfielder Matt Szczur spoke with the announcers about lending Anthony Rizzo his bat.

Turns out, Rizzo isn’t the only player who borrowed something of Szczur’s.

“I”m locker mates Addi┬áRussell, and he says, ‘Szc, make sure you give me a shout out because I wore your underwear yesterday.’ I swear. He wore my leggings. He left his leggings in Chicago and he asked for a pair and I gave him one.”

Sounds like Szczur is to thank for both Rizzo and Russell breaking out in Game 4.

“I’m here for the team and I want to contribute as much as I can,” he said.
