ATLANTA — Entering the third inning on Monday, the Chicago Cubs trailed the Atlanta Braves 4-0. However, with one swing of the lumber, left fielder Kris Bryant evened the score at 4-4 via a grand slam. The dinger was the 148th of Bryant's career, tying former Cubs first baseman Mark Grace for the 15th-most round-trippers in Cubs history.

Bryant lifted an 80.3-mph curveball thrown by starter Charlie Morton just over the wall in left field for his sixth career grand slam. The 359-footer, which came with two outs in the top of the third, landed in the visiting bullpen at Truist Park. Bryant's sixth long ball of the year scored pitcher Zach Davies, catcher Willson Contreras and first baseman Anthony Rizzo.
