Cubs slugger Kris Bryant exits game after outfield collision
CHICAGO (AP) - Cubs slugger Kris Bryant has left their game against Cincinnati after colliding with center fielder Jason Heyward on a drive in the sixth inning.
With two outs and a runner on first Sunday, Heyward and Bryant converged on Eugenio Suárez's fly ball toward the gap in right-center. It looked as if Heyward called off Bryant on the play, but they ran into each other and the ball went off Heyward's glove.
Bryant, a natural third baseman who occasionally plays the outfield, stayed down as Suárez hustled into third on the error. Chicago manager Joe Maddon and a trainer ran out to take a look, and the 2016 NL MVP gingerly walked off the field after a short conversation.
Albert Almora Jr. came in to play center field, and Heyward moved to right to replace Bryant.
