Kris Bryant went 2-for-4 with a double and a walk in Saturday's loss to the Pirates.

The rest of the Cubs' lineup managed just two hits against Francisco Liriano and the Pirates' bullpen. Bryant has been red-hot this month and owns a .280/.372/.504 batting line on the year. He's storming toward the NL Rookie of the Year award.

Kris Bryant went 2-for-4 and scored a run in Friday's loss to the Pirates.

The Cubs weren't able to get much going against Gerrit Cole and the Pirates' bullpen, as they tallied just seven hits on the day and all were singles until the ninth inning. Bryant has produced a multi-hit effort in six of his last nine tries.

Kris Bryant went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in a win over the Brewers on Tuesday.

The home run, Bryant's 26th of the season, came in the third inning with a runner on. He then added an RBI double in the eighth inning. The virtual lock for NL Rookie of the Year is batting .278/.371/.505 with 26 homers, 98 RBI and 85 runs scored overall.
Sep 22 - 10:34 PM

Kris Bryant and Jorge Soler connected on back-to-back home runs in the fifth inning on Saturday, helping to power the Cubs to a 5-4 victory over the visiting Cardinals.

At the time, the home runs put the Cubs ahead 4-1, but would wind up looming large after a late Cardinals rally. Bryant also doubled and drew a walk in the contest, finishing the afternoon 2-for-3 with two RBI. He's now hitting .275/.369/.499 with 25 homers and 95 RBI in what has been an incredibly impressive rookie campaign.

Kris Bryant is not in the Cubs' lineup Friday.

It looks to be a simple day off. Tommy La Stella is handling third base in Bryant's place.
Sep 18 - 1:25 PM

Kris Bryant went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a run scored and a walk in Thursday afternoon's win over the Pirates.

Bryant didn't drive in a run in the game, but as usual, he was all over the field. The young star has tallied three-hit games in each of his last two contests, four of the six hits going for doubles. He's hitting .274/.368/.492 with 24 homers, 93 RBI and 13 steals across 504 at-bats. Soon enough, Bryant might have to clear off space on the shelf for an NL Rookie of the Year award.
Sep 17 - 4:14 PM

Kris Bryant went 3-for-6 with two doubles and a steal Wednesday as the Cubs edged the Pirates 3-2 in 12 innings.

The Pirates were denied a plate blocking call in the eighth on a play that would have allowed them to tie the game and perhaps set up a big inning (they went on to tie it in the frame anyway, but that probably would have taken the lead if Miguel Montero had been called for the block). The Cubs went on to score the game's next run four innings in later on Anthony Rizzo's bloop-sac fly to left center. Bryant's two doubles gave him 26 for the season, and he's up to 13 steals, which has given his fantasy value an unexpected boost.

Kris Bryant is not in the Cubs' lineup Wednesday.

It's a routine day off. The Cubs have Javier Baez at third base while Bryant rests.
Sep 9 - 10:16 AM

Kris Bryant slugged a two-run homer in the Cubs' loss to the Reds on Wednesday in Chicago.

Bryant's two-run shot in the bottom of the eighth inning tied the game 5-5, but the Reds would answer back in the top of the first on a three-run bomb by Joey Votto. Bryant, 23, is batting .269/.369/.487 with 22 home runs and 84 RBI in his first 123 major league games.
Sep 2 - 5:32 PM

Kris Bryant is starting in right field for the Cubs on Monday.

It's just his second start in right field this season and fourth start in the outfield period. Tommy La Stella is at third base Monday and Starlin Castro is at second, but Bryant playing more in the outfield could potentially free up an opportunity for Javier Baez, who is expected to be promoted Tuesday.
Aug 31 - 4:41 PM

Kris Bryant blasted a two-run homer off Alex Wood in the first inning on Sunday, powering the Cubs to a 2-0 victory over the Dodgers.

That proved to be more than enough offense to back an absolute gem spun by Jake Arrieta. Bryant finished the night 1-for-4 and is now slashing .260/.362/.477 with 21 homers and 79 RBI in his impressive rookie campaign.
Aug 30 - 10:52 PM

Kris Bryant fanned all four times he was up Friday against the Dodgers.

If you're going to have a four-strikeout game, at least have it against Clayton Kershaw and Kenley Jansen. Bryant lost his seven-game hitting streak, but he's still batting .262. He opened August at .246.
Aug 29 - 1:29 AM

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.
Aug 27 - 1:17 AM

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.
