Kris Bryant went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Thursday's victory over the Padres.

His first inning bomb off Odrisamer Despaigne quickly gave the Cubs a lead they'd never relinquish. Bryant is riding a 10-game hitting streak. Though the power was slow to come in his first few weeks in the bigs, the rookie has corked four round-trippers during that 10-game streak. He's slashing .289/.411/.482 and just now looks to have gotten his feet under him at the sport's highest level. Bombs away.

He has four homers, putting him on pace for 17. As long as he stays healthy, he's going to do better than that, which speaks well to his RBI potential.
