The Cubs have been producing overall as on offense, but the middle of the order has been scuffling as of late. Kris Bryant got the first hit f Friday’s game against the Angels, hitting a single with an exit velocity of 102mph and then Anthony Rizzo blasted a home run.
Rizzo’s bomb went an estimated 472 feet.
And then Willson Contreras drilled one out to Waveland a few batters later.
Contreras only had three home runs after the All-Star Game last year. That blast to Waveland is now his fourth of 2019.
