Anthony Rizzo's first inning inside the park home run.
Did you see it?
Did you see him on the basepath?
Can you imagine having to tag him out?
And he runs like Mack Train if Mack made trains, or a bull in a china shop if a china shop had opposing players for delicate dishes.
3 to nothin' and if you're the Reds nobody's even been up to bat yet.
And to have Billy Hamilton catch the ball in the face on the play... that had to be pretty discouraging.
They couldn't just say "We give".
But it felt that way, watching.
Cubs 9 Reds 2.
Addison Russell went deep and so did Albert Almora for his first one in the bigs SUPER COOL!
Kyle Hendricks goes 6.2 and 108 pitches to help the bullpen rest after the 15 innings the night before.
And Carl Edwards Jr.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm almost positive he was on the playoff squad last year, but didn't make an appearance.
I think this year will be different, and he'll end up with a meaningful role.
Even if he looks like a high school basketball player.
Tonight it's the Dog Ass Mets in NY for 4 games of awesome pitching match-ups ending with Lester vs. Thor.
Too bad it's not in Chicago, but still it's gonna be a Fabulous Fourth.
