#Cubs HR Derby: Riz vs. Bryant
So, who do you think will win the Home Run Derby on Monday in Cincinnati between Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo?
“I think Rizzo might have a slight advantage there — short porch in right, ball flies pretty well,” Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta said. “He’s talking about going to the opposite field for a few. He’s more than capable of doing that. You can’t ever count Kris out because of the power he has. We’ll see how good his dad is at throwing BP.”
Maybe it will come down to their respective pitchers.
“They’re both in my hitting group and it depends on [coach Franklin] Font,” Dexter Fowler said. “If Font throws it where Riz wants – well, I don’t know. You know, ‘K.B.,’ he has familiarity with his pops. You never know.”
Mike Bryant will be pitching to Kris.
