By now you pretty much all know what happened in the Cubs/Brewers game last night (yeah they got killed, but let’s forget about all that). Epic slugger Kris Bryant finally hit his first MLB home run. As you’d expect, Twitter blew up right after the glorious event, and I collected a few highlights from my feed for your enjoyment. Here’s to hoping he does it again today and the Cubs go back to Wrigley with a win.
Kris Bryant homers in 92nd plate app. Majestic go-ahead 3-run HR. Dugout emptied into clubhouse for silent treatment. Beautiful moment.

Good thing they’ve got a roof, ’cause that sumbitch woulda brought rain.

Bryant’s first HR comes on career AB No. 74 (less than Thome, 89; ARod, 103; a lot more than Mays, 13, Ruth 18). #justsaying

Kris Bryant homers are stupid because he hits them too high to give you full vine time.

I think Maddon needs to sit Bryant, he just doesn’t look right at the plate. Right guys?
