Kris Bryant went 2-for-4 with a two-run single and a double in Wednesday's loss to the Giants.

Bryant and fellow young human Kyle Schwarber picked up four of the team's five hits, with the third-baseman driving in both Cub runs with a two-run single in the first. That turned out to be the offensive highlight of the game for the Cubbies, as they wouldn't score again. This was just their sixth loss in their last 21 road games. Bryant's certainly done his part to help fuel a possible playoff run, hitting .265/.368/.482 with 20 home runs, 77 RBI and 12 steals over 423 at-bats.

Kris Bryant sent Cubs fans home happy Monday, belting a walk-off, solo home run in the ninth inning versus the Indians.

Carlos Santana knotted things up 1-1 in the top of the ninth with a two-out RBI single, but Bryant had some two-out magic in store, as well, hitting a towering opposite field shot off Zach McAllister into the Wrigley Field bleachers. The longball gives Bryant an even 20 for the season to go along with 75 RBI and a .262/.366/.481 batting line. The Cubbies have won 20 of their last 24 games.

Bryant hit two of the club's five home runs, launching a two-run shot off Braves starter Matt Wisler in the first inning and a solo shot off reliever David Aardsma in the sixth. The NL Rookie of the Year candidate is hitting .262/.367/.476 with 19 home runs, 74 RBI and 12 steals through 412 at-bats. Sunday's multi-homer effort was Bryant's third of the season.

Kris Bryant went 4-for-4 with a homer, a triple and a walk in a losing cause Wednesday against the Tigers.

It's his first four-hit game as a major leaguer and first three-hit game since June 13, when he was batting .297. He entered tonight at .252, but he's back up to .259 now. He's up to 17 homers and five triples.

Kris Bryant finished 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 10-inning victory over the Brewers.

Bryant went to the opposite field for a solo home run off of Matt Garza in the second inning, his 16th of the season. The rookie third baseman is on a nine-game hitting streak, carrying a .249/.360/.448 batting line overall with 66 RBI.

Kris Bryant had a double, a stolen base and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

Bryant doubled and scored in the second inning, his only hit in four at-bats. His highs, and lows, have been about what was expected from the first-year player, but his 12 steals are perhaps the most surprising part of his rookie year -- he stole 15 bases in the minors in 2014, but that speed wasn't expected to carry over so seamlessly to the majors. The 23-year-old is hitting .249/.361/.442 overall.

Kris Bryant went 1-for-2 with an RBI single and a walk in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Bryant drove in his 65th run of the season with a first-inning RBI single off Giants starter Jake Peavy. With the hit, the 23-year-old rookie extended his current hitting streak to seven games. He struggled to the tune of a .168/.270/.368 triple-slash in July, but has bounced back nicely in August. For the season, he's hitting .249/.360/.441 with 15 homers, those 65 RBI and 11 steals.

Aug 2 - 5:52 PM

Kris Bryant left Sunday's game against the Brewers with an apparent injury to his head/neck area.

Bryant injured himself on a head-first slide into second base. He was able to walk off the field under his own power and looked to be OK, so perhaps the Cubs were just being cautious here. They should offer more on the third baseman's status later Sunday.
