That was one mammoth home run from Anthony Rizzo last night.
Out of the park and almost in the Allegheny.
Flew so high, I'm sure some people mistook it for something else.
The other thing that was cool about it was it was good for 2 runs and the lead vs the either tied-for-first or in-first place Pittsburgh Pirates.
And the Cubs continue to spoil on the road with the 5-4 win.
Jake Arrieta, I thought he looked okay til he got whacked in the 4th with 3 straight homers including an in-the-parker.
Then they left him in for the 5th and nothing happened, still tied.
In the 6th in comes Brooks Raley and a silly muff on a Rizzo to Raley throw allows McCutcheon to score from 3rd, and now the Cubs are down.
But in the 7th came the Rizzo dinger with Luis Valbuena on first after a nice walk and the Cubs take the lead for good.
So the hub bub about drones will only get more interesting as time goes by.
Pretty soon everybody will be able to buy them and they'll be the size of little bugs and look exactly like them. You'll be able to catch your neighbor's dog crapping on your lawn from the comfort of your office while that fly buzzing overhead is actually your boss watching you screw off at work spying.
They're already here, it's just not public knowledge.
Don't tell ANYONE this, but Theo's been using 'em since he came here.
You know those seagulls at Wrigley?
You think I'm joking?
