Not minutes after I clicked publish on Albert Almora’s lead-grabbing two-run homer, the Braves had already answered back with a Tyler Flowers home run in the top of the third.
But just a half-inning later, Kris Bryant put the Cubs back on top with his eighth homer of the season and sixth in May, alone.
Take a look:

Bryant’s homer traveled 386 feet, left the bat at 102 MPH, and had a launch angle of 28 degrees. He’s now slashing .288/.423/.600 on the year, with eight homers and a 173 wRC+.
