Watch: Anthony Rizzo Bashes Leadoff Home Run in Second Straight Game
Before Tuesday’s game against the Mets, Anthony Rizzo had exactly one at-bat from the leadoff spot in the order in his entire career, and it was a strikeout.
He hit went yard in his first at-bat from the top of the order last night, and now he’s done it again. This time he crushed a high fastball deep over the center field wall to give the Cubs the early 1-0 lead.
This leadoff thing is pretty easy, huh, @ARizzo44? pic.twitter.com/gjMKeQGcYg
