It had been nearly two weeks since Kris Bryant last homered. Coincidentally, it was a two-homer performance against the Dodgers on June 22. Bryant got back on the board in a big way on Saturday night against the Marlins.
The Cubs’ third base prospect drilled a two-run home run to left-center in the first inning off of Jarred Cosart to start the scoring in the first inning. He tacked on with a grand slam in the second inning to chase Cosart from the game.
Bryant, 23, now has 12 home runs with 49 RBI and a .278/.381/.486 triple-slash line.
