KBOOM! Kris Bryant Destroys a Three-Run Shot (VIDEO)

Chicago Cubs

You can’t hold a good Kris Bryant down for too long.

After grounding out with two outs and the bases loaded earlier in the game, Bryant had a two-out chance for redemption in the 4th inning with two runners on and he didn’t miss his shot.

His shot being his 16th homer of the year (via @Cubs):

That was a lovely looking blast, with plenty of distance and heat off the bat:

As you well know by now, Bryant has been mired in something of a mini-slump, so it’s good to see him really get ahold of one. I had some thoughts on the subject on Twitter before Bryant’s blast that I stand by now:

Hopefully after tonight (well, and then with appropriate distance to look back), we can say that the eight-day slump was all it was.
