THERE IT IS! Anthony Rizzo Homers for the First Time Since May 2nd!
Anthony Rizzo had been in a big time homer drought here lately (he hadn’t hit one out since May 2nd), but he came through with a big one tonight (101 MPH, 386 feet) to put the Cubs up by 7 runs late.
This was his second extra-base hit of the night, as well as his 3rd and 4th RBI. Check it out:
