David Bote and Anthony Rizzo Combine for an Incredible Run-Saving Play (VIDEO)

Chicago Cubs

On a night when the warm wind is howling out, the more you permit the opposing team to extend innings and put runners on base, the more you’re at risk for a huge blow.

Such was just the case in the top of the third, as the Reds loaded the bases on a wild Kyle Hendricks, and Yasiel Puig crushed a missed spot … but David Bote and Anthony Rizzo took care of business:

That ball ate Bote up given his positioning and how hard it was hit, but he stayed with it, collected himself for a strong throw, and Anthony Rizzo went ALL OUT to complete the play.
