Mini Spring Training Homer Party? Ian Happ and Anthony Rizzo Go Deep (VIDEOS)

Chicago Cubs

A couple Cubs regulars went deep today against the Rockies, and I say that’s enough for us to have a mini Spring Training-style Homer Party.

Anthony Rizzo tied things up for the Cubs in the 3rd inning with his second homer of the spring, a yank shot to right (the feed camera was apparently just a bit off today, but hey, I’ll still gladly take it):

The camera doesn’t follow, but as you can hear Mick Gillispie describe the ball just evading the outfielder’s outstretched glove, I am imagining right fielder Jordan Patterson openly weeping. You can’t prove he wasn’t!

The next inning, Ian Happ continued his BARRAGE of dingers, knocking his fourth already on the Spring:

As we noted in the Miscellany, Happ is just destroying the Cactus League again:

Not that Rizzo is slacking, by the way – in his small Spring sample, he’s up to .417/.500/1.000.
