Bryant pleased to rebound from 1st error with Cubs win

CHICAGO (AP) Kris Bryant was pleased to rebound from his first major league error with a good day at the plate and a Chicago Cubs' win.

Bryant misplayed a leadoff grounder, then got a standing ovation for his first major league hit and reached base five times Saturday in a 7-6, 11-inning win over the San Diego Padres.

''The tone wasn't really set with me making an error,'' he said Sunday. ''We came back from it. I kind of let that go. It's part of the game and I ended up having a good game and I got the hit. That was fun.''
