There were definitely some highlights, though, like Anthony Rizzo putting his running shoes on and legging out a triple:
Chase Field has a cavernous outfield, and Rizzo took advantage there on something that might have been a single at Wrigley Field.
Rizzo also singled in the game, took a walk, was hit by a pitch, and hit a three-run homer rocket. That one came on a down and in slider, he appeared to later say in the dugout that it was exactly what he was looking for:
Rizzo’s second homer of the young season came off the bat at 109.6mph, according to Statcast, which is an especially hard shot for Rizzo (he’s usually more of a towering, good launch angle guy).
Together with the triple and the single, Rizzo totaled eight bases on the night, and also knocked in six runs … something he also did at Chase Field in a game last May.
