In his first year with the Cubs, Kris Bryant has continually proven his worth to the team, and on Saturday, he proved it one more time when he tied a big rookie record.

Bryant is now tied with Billy Williams for the rookie record for home runs at 25, according to the team. Williams set the record in 1961.

The third baseman hit the home run at Wrigley Field against the St. Louis Cardinals. Bryant's home run made for a back-to-back homer in the fifth inning, with Jorge Soler hitting the first one.

The Cubs are currently third in the division behind the Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Pirates.
