After rampaging through the minor leagues with 43 home runs last year and leading all hitters in spring training home runs with nine, Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant needed 21 games before hitting his first major league home run. He got on the board in the third inning against Kyle Lohse in Saturday’s game in Milwaukee, giving the Cubs a 3-2 lead.

Though he hadn’t done much in the power department, Bryant still entered Saturday’s action with an otherwise respectable .278/.422/.361 triple-slash line in 90 plate appearances.
Oddly enough, Bryant’s home run was the Cubs’ first with more than one runner on base this season.
