Kris Bryant went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and three runs scored in a win over the Marlins on Thursday.
Bryant had just two hits in his previous 19 at-bats, with no runs batted in in that time, before breaking out Thursday. He hit a three-run homer off Marlins starter Jeff Locke in the fourth inning, his 16th of the year, and scored three of the Cubs' 11 runs in the contest. The 25-year-old is hitting a relatively mediocre .264/.393/.524 with 31 RBI, 48 runs scored and six steals, but there's plenty of time for him to go on a tear and make us forget about his early-season swoon.

Kris Bryant hit a two-run homer off Dan Straily in the first inning of Monday's game against the Marlins.

Bryant kept his 1:2 HR:RBI ratio; he has 13 homers and 26 RBI for the season. Not counting himself, he's driven in a total of three baserunners these last six weeks. He's probably not winning another MVP as a No. 2 hitter.

The All-Star third baseman is slashing .303/.411/.587 with 10 homers, 22 RBI and four steals across 155 at-bats. That battling line is stronger on all three fronts than the .292/.385/.554 triple-slash he posted when he won the NL MVP last season.
