Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant left Sunday's game against the Colorado Rockies after being hit in the head by a pitch.

Bryant was hit by 96 mile per hour four-seam fastball by Rockies right hander German Marquez in the top of the first inning.

David Bote came in to pinch run for Bryant after he left the game.

Cubs hitting coach Chili Davis and assistant hitting coach Andy Haines were both tossed from the game after their reactions to Bryant getting hit.

The team said that Bryant was examined and passed all tests and that he suffered a small laceration above his eye from his sunglasses, showing no signs of a concussion.

Bryant is hitting .319 with two home runs and 11 RBI this season for Chicago.
