The Reds are winning today’s Home Run Derby ever so slightly, but Kris Bryant is doing his part to get the Cubs back into it.
A couple innings after homering together with Anthony Rizzo in the third, Bryant hit his second of the day:

As of this moment, Bryant, who also has doubled today, is up to a .330/.413/.723 slash line with a 200(!) wRC+. His 1.9 WAR is tied for tops in the NL right now.
He’s been one of the three or four best hitters in baseball so far this year. Quite clearly.
