Watch: Anthony Rizzo Breaks Out Wedge for Game-Winner

Anthony Rizzo came into Monday’s Game 3 hitting 3-for-3 with 4 RBI when batting with runners in scoring position. In fact, those had been his only hits in the two previous games. But when he came up with a man on second and first base open with two outs in the 8th, you had believe the Nats weren’t going to pitch to him.

Ah, but Dusty gon’ Dusty. Which means Rizzo is now 4-for-4 with 5 RBI, good enough to earn a little Rizpect.
