News: The Reds lost Saturday to hot Milwaukee, but don't blame third baseman Todd Frazier. He slammed two doubles and two singles. The trouble is that all of them went for naught. He neither scored nor drove in a run.

Cubs slugger Kris Bryant slams pair in first two innings Saturday

7/4/2015
News: 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.
