Anthony Rizzo finally got called up to the Padres! Rizzo went 1-2 with a triple, 2 walks, and 1 K. That’s a pretty good debut and could’ve been better if the fence was 5 feet closer. Anthony was swingin’ for the fences on his first swing which he admitted… I like the confidence!
The Padres are playing well right now and are just 6 games under .500! If the Padres can continue this brand of decent baseball and get a good contribution from Rizzo, the season could be far from over. The Pads definitely have the pitching to hang around, but the bats have to stay warm. Maybe they should talk to JoBu and get Hats for Bats… or just get him a refill!
