WATCH: Anthony Rizzo lofts towering home run off Trevor Bauer


by - Senior Writer -

CINCINNATI — Winning a battle against Cincinnati Reds ace Trevor Bauer, Anthony Rizzo worked a nine-pitch at-bat that was capped off by him going deep. Rizzo's high, arcing solo shot to right increased the Cubs' lead to 2-0 at Great American Ball Park.

The third-inning dinger came on a sinker from Bauer, as Rizzo pulled off one of his signature crouching home runs, nearly going down to one knee in the process of skying a 367-footer. Rizzo's at-bat started off 0-2 and featured five foul balls, with "Big Rizz" fighting off several pitches before finally getting underneath one for a dinger.
