CHICAGO — With the fourth home run of the day for the Chicago Cubs, third baseman Kris Bryant drove a two-run bomb into the left field bleachers on Saturday. The 380-footer, Bryant's fourth long ball of the season, put the Cubs up 8-0 over the Atlanta Braves in the bottom of the fifth at Wrigley Field.
Braves reliever Jesse Biddle offered up a 92.6-mph four-seamer, and Bryant plowed it over the left field wall, scoring first baseman Anthony Rizzo. The homer sported an exit velocity of 98.5 mph and a launch angle of 28 degrees. Seven of the Cubs' eight runs up to that point came via the home run ball.
