The Cubs offense isn’t exactly roaring tonight, but they did just battle back to tie it in the 6th on the strength of Kris Bryant’s 19th home run of the season.

That was Bryant’s 19th homer this year and first hit of the game. It left his bat at 103 MPH and traveled 405 feet out to left-center.
Oh, and here’s a tip for opposing pitchers …
Kris Bryant is slugging 1.000 (66 total bases in 66 ABs) when the pitcher is behind in the count this season — 6th best in MLB; League Avg: .695.
