There’s a mini home run derby going on right now at Wrigley Field, where the Atlanta Braves and Chicago Cubs have traded leads with long balls.
Kris Bryant’s hot stretch continued, as he smashed a two-run homer in the third inning, giving the Cubs a 4-3 lead. It was their second two-run dinger, as Albert Almora Jr. hit one in the second.
Bryant now has eight home runs this season and six have come in 12 games during the first two weeks of May.

The Braves have also hit two home runs during the game, a leadoff shot in the first and a two-run dinger that briefly put them ahead in the top of the third inning.
This is a make up game from their April series and that included the wild 14-10 comeback win by the Cubs.
