Is there a better embodiment of the streakiness of baseball than a dude who hadn’t homered in a month walking a game off and then homering almost immediately in his very next game?
So it is with Anthony Rizzo tonight in St. Louis:
The greatest leadoff hitter of all-time, keeps on being the greatest leadoff hitter of all-time. Anthony Rizzo puts the Cubs up 1-0!

Love to see some power coming for Rizzo at a time when the Cubs will be without Kris Bryant. Need it. That was 108.3 mph off the bat, and it went 427 feet. That was no cheapy.
And another important source of power was there to great Rizzo in the dugout:
