Bruce helps Reds overcome his error, beat Cubs 9-3

 

CINCINNATI (AP) — The Cubs’ Kris Bryant became the first major leaguer to hit three homers and two doubles in a game on Monday night against the Cincinnati Reds.

Bryant doubled home a run, hit a solo shot, had a three-run homer, doubled again and had another solo homer in the eighth as the Cubs pulled ahead 10-7. His 16 total bases set a club record.

The three homers and five hits were a career high. His six RBIs matched his career high. He drove in six runs during Jake Arrieta’s 16-0 no-hitter at Great American Ball Park on April 21, hitting two homers including a grand slam.

Arrieta was on the mound Monday and had a solo homer of his own before leaving after five innings.
