First of all … props to Brett on coming up with that title. It is absolutely killing me. But now onto the fun.
Kyle Schwarber may have opened up the scoring with a leadoff blast in the top of the first inning, but just two innings later, the Bryzzo Souvenir company created some new inventory.
First up … Kris Bryant:
That was Bryant’s 12th homer of the season.
And it was quickly followed up by another Anthony Rizzo shot off the scoreboard:
— Chicago Cubs (@Cubs) May 24, 2019
That was Rizzo’s 14th of the year.
Now let’s compare size …
Schwarber: 112 MPH, 449 Feet
Bryant: 102 MPH, 421 Feet
Rizzo: 111 MPH, 426 Feet
Schwarber’s blast was the hardest hit and furthest of the day, but they were all beautiful in their own right. The Cubs are now tied for the 6th most home runs in baseball, second most in the NL (77).
