That Brewers lead only lasted a little more than an inning.

In the bottom of the fifth Anthony Rizzo led things off for Chicago and went deeeeeep to right center off of Jhoulys Chacin to tie the game.

The homer came on an 0-1 fastball and Rizzo manhandled it, launching it at 110 m.p.h and 429 feet from home plate. It was such a no-doubter that Christian Yelich didn’t move a muscle in right field. Watch:

It’s a tight one as we head into the sixth.
