Watch: Addison Russell, Anthony Rizzo Hammer Home Runs in Houston
Addison Russell missed a few spring games with a sore back and then he mentioned the other day that he felt he was “109 percent.” I have to admit, I had to do the head-tilt, eye-squint thing when I first heard that, but after seeing him pound his sixth spring homer I get it. Take a look and you’ll see what I mean.
And then, in the top of the 5th inning, Anthony Rizzo did his best Luke Skywalker imitation. The force was undoubtedly with him on this double-decker shot.
