WATCH: Rizzo hits towering 429-foot solo dinger


by - Senior Writer -

Providing the Chicago Cubs with their third home run of the night in their matchup with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday, first baseman Anthony Rizzo nailed a towering solo blast to right to lead off the seventh. Marking Rizzo's fifth dinger of the year, the solo shot carried 429 feet after peeling off the bat at 31 degrees.

Taking D-backs reliever Matt Kock deep, Rizzo powered out a fastball thrown in the zone. Rizzo's round-tripper boasted an exit velocity of 109 miles per hour and was the third homer of the evening for the Cubs, as David Bote tabbed a pair of home runs earlier in the game.
