Cubs slugger Kris Bryant slams pair in first two innings Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2015) After two innings Saturday night, Cubs slugger Kris Bryant was on pace to hit eight home runs and drive in 24 against shell-shocked Miami.

OK, that wasn't going to happen. But Bryant certainly destroyed the Marlins with his bat, pretty much putting it away well before darkness fell in Chicago.

Bryant opened the scoring with a two-run homer in the first, then blasted a grand slam in the second to give him 12 home runs and 49 RBI on the year. The cherry on top is that he now has a five-game hitting streak.

"It was him -- that was our offense tonight," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said, per MLB.com. "Without that, this game is entirely different. It was nice to get him going."

In the process he became the first Cubs rookie to hit two grand slams in a season since Billy Williams in 1961.

Cubs manager pleased with third baseman Kris Bryant so far


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

"That's who he is," Maddon said Wednesday of the rookie third baseman. "His left field foul line should be left center and then move it over from there. If he's hooking the ball a lot, he's not going to be happy."

Bryant is hitting .276 with 19 RBI in 87 at-bats this season.

"I was really happy to see the ball go that way," Maddon said of the triple to right. "You'll see a lot of home runs to right central. He's one of those rare dudes who can hit the ball out to the opposite gap in any ballpark and you'll see that this summer."

"He's just a special talent and it's fun to watch him play every day. I look forward to watching him grow," Cubs starting pitcher Jake Arrieta said after the game.
