WATCH: Rizzo bunts for hit to leadoff game


by - Senior Editor -

Chicago Cubs slugger Anthony Rizzo is really enjoying leading off for his team. On Monday night, he bunted for a single as the Padres defense were playing a shift for him to pull. In case you were some reason wondering, the bunt had an exit velocity of 42 MPH.

In leading off games this season, Rizzo has two homers, two singles, a double, and a walk in six total at-bats. With the bunt hit, he now extended his current hitting streak to a career-best 13 games. His previous best hitting streak was 12 games.

Check out the video of Rizzo's bunt below.
