Kris Bryant's first multi-run hit should've been accompanied by the Benny Hill theme.
Yes, "Yackety Sax" would be an apt soundtrack to the wacky play from the top of the seventh that broke a 1-all tie in Pittsburgh on Monday night.
With two runners on, Bryant crushed a ball to left-center field, his first-career extra-base hit.
Both runners came around to score, Anthony Rizzo crossing the plate just as a relay throw bounced off Pirates catcher Francisco Cervelli.
Bryant then got a little too aggressive rounding third base, caught in between a throw down to third base. Bryant turned toward home, and Cervelli again being unable to corral a throw allowed the rookie to score the play's third run.
So Bryant is still without his first big league homer, but he did get to touch every base on one play Monday night on what several observers dubbed a "Little League home run."
Bryant broke a tie he created earlier in the game, when his RBI basehit made it 1-1 in the fifth inning. So while all three runs on that zany play didn't go as RBIs, the Cubs' first four runs Monday came off Bryant hits.
