Sorry Iowa fans, Kris Bryant is on his way to Chicago. But before he departed, he crushed his third dinger of the season, boom!
I think Kris Bryant redefined towering shot, that was really high, and really gone. Bryant had a huge game, the dinger was the exclamation point.
Edwin Jackson did himself no favors today as the Athletics put a hurting on the right-hander. E-Jax gave up eight runs on nine hits in just 1.2 innings of work, his spring ERA sits at a meteoric 7.59, yuck. The result was never really in question today with the A’s scoring ten times through three frames en route to a 14-2 victory. How did the Cubs get their runs you ask? Well, the usual ways. Jorge Soler had an RBI single, and Kris Bryant increased his ridiculous home run total to nine on the spring. Bryant did make his third error of the spring this afternoon, but no one is talking about that, except the Cubs front office (wink, wink). Not a lot of things went well today, but one bright spot was the Cubs walked nine(!) times, sure they were 1-for-11 with runners in scoring position, but NINE WALKS.
At this point I wonder if baseball is even hard for Kris Bryant, because it doesn’t look like it is. Another day, another two dinger game for Bryant as he finished the day 2-for-2 with said two dingers, a walk, and FIVE RBI, goodness. The rest of the Cubs followed Bryant’s lead as they pounded out sixteen hits en route to scoring twelve runs to beat the Mariners 12-10. Lost in the Bryant madness is the spring that Addison Russell is having, Russell went 2-for-3 with his first homer of the spring, a run scored, and two RBI, he’s now hitting .409 on the spring. Last year the Cubs cracked their fair share of homers, this spring they have hit 28 which leads all of baseball, that includes the four they hit today (Bryant, Russell, Castillo, Bryant). After a horrendous 1-8-1 start the Cubs are now 9-10-1, playing much better baseball, and getting results.
This is beyond stupid at this point, Kris Bryant just took King Felix deep, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a performance like Bryant’s this spring. Bryant took a 2-2 pitch over the left center field wall against arguably the best pitcher in baseball. Video as soon as I get it.
The Cubs are also participating in a B game today, it really doesn’t count, tell that to the baseball that was just annihilated. Thanks to Jason Witt (@JasonWitt) for getting it.
