Chicago Cubs rookie Kris Bryant's first career hit was an RBI single during Saturday's 7–6, 11-inning win over the San Diego Padres.

With runners on first and third and one out during the fifth inning, Bryant hit a broken-bat blooper to shallow right-center. After Padres centerfielder Wil Myers fielded the ball and threw it to third, Bryant advanced to second. Cubs centerfielder Dexter Fowler scored on the play to tie the game at 2–2.

Bryant was called up from Triple A Iowa before Friday's 5–4 loss to the Padres. He went hitless in four plate appearances with three strikeouts.
