Yes Anthony Rizzo can.
On a whim last night I tweeted (yes, tweeted) the above art and went over to Sutherland's to watch the game.
Couldn't believe when he did it since, well if you read here regularly you know that whatever I think NEVER happens.
So, the game...
First off it's Matt Garza, who has turned into a colossal jag over time, and even worse, a loser colossal jag.
So it was so satisfying to watch Kyle Schwarber just go to work on him with two out in the 3rd.
About 50 pitches thrown, big delays from vet Garza to throw the kid off, and finally the smack up the middle and Schwarber's on first.
Then Rizzo hits one 400 feet, Cubs 3 Brewers nothin'.
Garza the Jag then plunks Bryant, but the damage was done by Rizzo.
The 4th homer in 4 games.
Young Kyle Hendricks does it by the book, waiting an inning for Ryan Braun to come up before tossing the retaliation plunk.
(The guy next to me says, "They should just hit that guy every time anyway.")
Later, Schwarber would hit his own 400 footer, and we all got our first glance at new power pitcher dude Tommy Hunter who came in for the last 2 outs in the bottom 9.
A really really fabulous game all the way around.
This afternoon it's gonna be Clayton Richard (who has got to be playing for his life either in Chicago or elsewhere) vs Kyle Lohse.
If all goes well, then history will repeat from 2003: sweep.
