WATCH: Bryant goes yard for second time in game, gives Cubs back-to-back bombs


by - Senior Writer -

Back-to-back blasts resulted in the Chicago Cubs taking an 8-4 lead over the Washington Nationals in the eighth inning on Friday. Just two pitches after left fielder Kyle Schwarber smacked a 2-run blast to cap off a 13-pitch at-bat, third baseman Kris Bryant drilled a 383-foot solo shot to left for his second dinger of the game.

In the previous inning, Bryant tabbed a 2-run homer, and the eighth-inning moonshot served as the 10th long ball of the season for the former MVP. Coming off Nationals reliever Kyle Barraclough, who also gave up Schwarber's home run, Bryant's towering solo shot sported a launch angle of 38 degrees as it sailed over the left-field wall.
