WATCH: 'Big Rizz' goes yard again with leadoff bomb


by - Senior Writer -

CHICAGO — For the second time in as many at-bats on Sunday, Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo homered off Atlanta Braves starter Bryse Wilson. Rizzo's second long ball of the game — and third on the year — led off the bottom of the third and carried 381 feet out to center field. It came on the very first pitch of the bottom half of the third.

Rizzo cut into the Braves' lead by way of the solo shot, making the score 6-3 at Wrigley Field. "Big Rizz" hammered a 77.4-mph curveball, sending it into the center field bleachers at 99 mph and 31 degrees. The long ball hit by Rizzo in the first frame also came on a Wilson curveball.
