What an interesting game last night as Junior Lake and Anthony Rizzo both went deep twice and Yasiel Puig also hit a long ball. Nights like that are a scouts dream when you can see tools like Lake and Puig have, in particular.
Lake also made a fantastic catch in foul ground as he banged into the side wall in left field. There’s a fine line between aggressive and reckless and I think Junior is sorting through that right now.
Good to see Rizzo heat up. He has three homers in two games and this offense really needs his bat going in the middle with Alfonso Soriano now gone.
Welington Castillo hits cleanup today. First time in his career.
Great matchup of lefties. Ryu and Wood. Both have had excellent seasons and both can handle the bat as well.
Should be fun.
