WATCH: Kris Bryant skies 414-foot dinger on second pitch of game


by - Senior Writer -

LOS ANGELES — Chicago Cubs shortstop Javier Baez hit a solo home run in the top of the first against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday, and third baseman Kris Bryant did the same on Friday. Providing the Cubs with an early 1-0 lead, Bryant swung at the first pitch of his at-bat and lifted it 414 feet out to left-center.

Bryant's 15th dinger of the season, the first-inning blast at Dodger Stadium came on a 93.1-mph four-seamer thrown by starter Tony Gonsolin. The towering long ball left the bat at 105.9 mph and 36 degrees, increasing Bryant's RBI total to 41. Gonsolin gave up the homer on just the second pitch of his outing, as left fielder Joc Pederson, a former Dodger, flied out to right on the first pitch of the game.
