Watch: Cubs' Kris Bryant hits first MLB home run

Sunday May 10th, 2015

Chicago Cubs rookie third baseman Kris Bryant hit his first MLB home run Saturday night against the Milwaukee Brewers.

The three-run shot came in the third inning off an 83 mph slider from Brewers righthander Kyle Lohse, the first pitch of the at-bat.

The home run scored Addison Russell and Dexter Fowler, giving the Cubs a 3–0 lead at Miller Park.

Bryant was called up from Triple A Iowa last month. His first MLB hit came April 18, on a broken-bat RBI single in a 7–6 win over the San Diego Padres.

After returning to the dugout, Bryant was greeted by an empty dugout while the Cubs hid in the tunnel to the clubhouse.
