CHICAGO -- Kris Bryant stepped up to the plate with two outs in the ninth inning, his team tied at 1 with Cleveland, but he wasn't thinking about hitting a home run to win the game. Really, he was thinking about hitting a fly ball.
The 23-year old had already flown out once in the game and entered 0-for-3 before his at-bat. This time, Bryant hit the first pitch he saw -- a curveball -- over the wall in right field to give the Cubs a 2-1 victory over the Indians on Monday at Wrigley Field.
