Anthony Rizzo got ‘same numb chills’ re-watching Rajai Davis home run from Game 7 of 2016 World Series

With live sports not taking place, re-airings and re-watchings of classic games has become a new trend.

Last week, MLB Network aired Games 5-7 of the 2016 World Series. Anthony Rizzo was one of those to watch and it gave him some eerie flashbacks.

One of the big moments in Game 7 was Rajai Davis’ two-run home run in the eighth inning that tied the game. Davis blasted an Aroldis Chapman fastball over the left field wall on the seventh pitch of the at-bat. At the time, it was obviously a huge momentum swing.

Even knowing the ending now, Rizzo was screaming at his TV like any other fan re-watching that game.

“When Davis hits the homer, I’m standing there in the kitchen and I’m just like, ‘Throw the slider!'” Rizzo said on Monday’s Kap & Company radio show on ESPN 1000. “He hits it and I swear I got the same numb chills feeling that I did playing at first base. It was cool to see all that because I really haven’t seen much of it as far as live. I might go back and watch [them] all and start from the DS.”

Of course, Rizzo probably wouldn’t be able to watch that play if the Cubs didn’t win in extra innings.
