Cubs Star Kris Bryant Leaves Game vs. Giants

Bryant left the game after striking out in the top of the fifth inning

Chicago Cubs infielder Kris Bryant has been removed from Wednesday’s game against the San Francisco Giants after taking an at-bat in the fifth inning.

Bryant, who hit his 21st home run of the season on Wednesday afternoon, struck out during an at-bat in the fifth inning of the game, then was removed from the lineup between frames.

According to the Cubs, Bryant was removed from the game because of right knee soreness. They did not provide a further update on his status. 

David Bote came into the game to replace Bryant at third base. 

At the same time, Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo was ejected from the contest after getting into an argument with home plate umpire Jordan Baker. Rizzo was not happy with a strike that Baker had called during the at-bat, and was tossed after the inning ended.

We’ll keep fans up to date as more information emerges on Bryant’s status.
