Watch: Kris Bryant homers twice in three innings to lead Cubs over Dodgers

Saturday August 27th, 2016

Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant hit a go-ahead home run in the top of the 10th inning to lift the Cubs to a 6–4 win over the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Friday.

It was Bryant’s second home run of the game. His solo home run in the eighth inning cut the Dodgers’ lead to 4–3, and Chicago later tied the game in the ninth on a wild pitch by Kenley Jansen. The two shots also propelled Bryant into the National League lead in home runs with 35 on the season.
