Kris Bryant Singles For First Major League Hit

Updated – April 18th 11:00 am

After a day when he would strike out three times in four at bats in his major league debut, Kris Bryant  settled down in his second day and delivered a broken bat bloop single, driving in a run, for his first major league hit and RBI. The run would tie the game at 2-2 in the fifth inning.

The Fans responded with a standing ovation, which was a great “Welcome to Chicago and the Majors” tribute any player could experience.

In the 11th inning and before the game-winning hit by Starlin Castro, Bryant had another single and finished on the day 2 for 3 with three walks.

Well the moment that all Cubs fans were waiting for finally happened Friday afternoon.  Top prospect Kris Bryant made his major league debut at Wrigley Field.

It wasn’t necessarily the debut that he or the rest of Cubs nation had hoped for offensively.  Bryant went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts.  It could have been a combination of good pitching or nerves, but he looked a little lost at the plate the first three at-bats.

Bryant swung at the first three pitches he saw in the bottom half of the first inning and it didn’t really get much better from there.

He did however look good in the field by starting a double play and making a nice diving play also.

It isn’t really fair to expect him to perform the same way he did in the spring, but there is plenty of time for him to grow and be a mainstay at the hot corner.

Finally the day will arrive sooner than expect, but truly hoped by the Cubs faithful and any baseball fan that witnessed his talents during Spring Training.  Kris Bryant will join the Cubs and make his Major League Debut on Friday at Wrigley Field against the San Diego Padres, according to MLB.com.

Bryant, who belted nine home runs during this past spring training, hit a three run home run on Thursday for the Iowa Cubs and batted .321 (9 for 28), with three home runs and 10 RBI’s in seven Triple-A games.

The Cubs Phenom will now get a chance to prove that he is here to stay.
