WATCH: Anthony Rizzo hits mile-high 2-run blast at Miller Park


by - Senior Writer -

MILWAUKEE — Hitting a moonshot that was more like a punt than a home run, Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo put his club up 2-0 over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday. The towering third-inning blast at Miller Park featured an impressive launch angle of 43 degrees.

Rizzo plated Cubs catcher Willson Contreras, who was hit by a pitch earlier in the frame, by way of the 348-foot shot to right. The round-tripper off Brewers starter Chase Anderson left the bat at 100 miles per hour and boasted plenty of hang time. Rizzo now has 21 homers and 71 RBI on the season.
