WATCH: Bryant goes yard for first time since Opening Day with 444-foot bomb


by - Senior Writer -

Going yard for the first time since Opening Day, Chicago Cubs slugger Kris Bryant put the Cubbies on the board against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday. Smacking a monstrous 444-foot home run beyond left-center, Bryant plated Albert Almora Jr. with two outs in the top of the third.

The dinger made the score 3-2 in favor or Arizona, and it marked Bryant's first hit in 14 at-bats against Diamondbacks starter Robbie Ray in his career. Ray was taken deep on a 4-seamer thrown over the heart of the plate. The second homer of the season for Bryant sailed off the bat at 111.1 miles per hour, making it the hardest-hit long ball of the year at Chase Field thus far.
