Watch: Anthony Rizzo Gives Cubs Lead with Two-Run Shot
After two homers that had initially looked like pop-ups, Anthony Rizzo’s bomb in the top of the 4th looked like it was destined for the upper deck. It actually ended up barely making the first row of seats, where a Cubs fan made a nice barehanded snag. As of that hit, Rizzo was 3-for-3 with RISP in the NLDS and had significantly elevated what had been a career .258 OPS against Gio Gonzalez.
