On Wednesday night the Atlanta Braves' bats got hot against the Chicago Cubs and by the 6th inning, the Braves had extended it to a 10-0 lead.

By the bottom of the 7th inning, with the game seemingly out of reach, the Cubs had put everyday first baseman Anthony Rizzo in to pitch. In the most unlikely of scenarios, Rizzo actually struck out the Braves' best hitter in Freddie Freeman.

Rizzo and Freeman are good friends, so neither could help but to break out in laughter after it happened.

After the game, Rizzo had a hilarious request – he wanted Freeman to sign the baseball.

This is all in good fun between two friends, and it will probably be the only time in their careers Rizzo can snag a strikeout over the former NL MVP. Maybe if Freeman is lucky enough to get his chance at revenge and puts one over the fence, he can find a way to retrieve and have Rizzo sign that one.
