Kris Bryant wastes no time making a difference with Giants
It has not taken long for Kris Bryant to make a difference with the San Francisco Giants after being acquired by them at the recent MLB trade deadline.
In his Giants debut, Bryant launched a home run as he helped the team finish with a key 5-3 win against the Houston Astros.
Now, Bryant has extended his early hot streak with the Giants after delivering for the team in their series finale against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
In the top of the 10th inning against Arizona, Bryant laced a double down the left-field line, which scored infielder Tommy La Stella.

The Giants mounted one impressive 5-4 comeback win against the Diamondbacks as they scored four runs in the 9th inning to force extra innings, which was then topped off by Bryant’s game-winning RBI double.
San Francisco is now 4-1 following the acquisition of Bryant from the Chicago Cubs at the trade deadline. More so, he has so far notched hits in four of the five games played with the team. It has simply been so far, so good with Bryant’s early run in San Francisco, which surely must please the team’s front office.
Bryant and the Giants will now look ahead to a massive three-game road series against the NL Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers. The Giants will surely look upon Bryant to lead the way in this series, especially as he has a long history of success in going up against the Brewers from during his time with the Cubs.
