DES MOINES, Iowa – Since joining the Iowa Cubs, Kris Bryant has been all or nothing.
Before Tuesday’s game, Bryant became the first player in franchise history to have his first four hits all homers.
The Chicago Cubs prospect added to his record in front of 10,000 fans at Principal Park when he sent one deep down the line. A fifth home run from just five hits gave the Cubs a 3-1 lead over Albuquerque.
I-Cubs went on to win 6-2.
Despite the homeruns, the 22-year-old is batting just .238.
“The guys are giving me a hard time and saying ‘when are you going to hit a single?’ If I’m helping my team in any way possible, I’m doing my job,” Bryant said.
The I-Cubs are off Wednesday before they head to Colorado Springs.
