The Bright Spot: A Monster Anthony Rizzo Homer Off Clayton Kershaw (VIDEO)

Chicago Cubs News

Although there wasn’t much to cheer on offense last night for the Cubs against Clayton Kershaw, Anthony Rizzo did manage to come through on a 3-2 count with an absolute monster blast to center field.

This baby went 440 feet, and came off the bat at a blistering 109.3 mph:

The shot was Rizzo’s 26th on the year, tied for 14th in baseball, and giving him a very good shot at topping 30 for the second straight season.

Rizzo is also tied for 14th in WAR, at 4.8. His 153 wRC+ is 8th highest in baseball, too. Not that you didn’t already know he was an offensive stud.
