ANTHONY “GRAND SLAM” RIZZO DID A THING

Chicago Cubs

After rocketing up the leaderboards with 19 blasts by June 15th, Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo hadn’t hit a home run in over a month. Until today. But you know what they say, good things come to those who wait.

Check out Rizzo’s two-out, opposite-field, go-ahead home run … his 20th of the year:

SEE YA!

That ball left Rizzo’s bat at 99 MPH and traveled 366 feet … just enough to wipe out the Padres 3-0 lead and give the Cubs a one-run lead of their own.

The Cubs now have four players with at least 20 homers: Kris Bryant (20), Javy Baez (22), Kyle Schwarber (21), and Rizzo (20). Willson Contreras (19), when he returns, should join the club shortly.

UPDATE: A shot from the crowd …
