Watch: Kris Bryant Hits Go-Ahead Home Run In 2nd Half Opener
It was a pitchers duel kind of day at Wrigley on Friday as the Cubs and Pirates opened the second half. Yu Darvish exited after throwing six scoreless innings with another no-decision. Pirates starter Chris Archer, however, stayed in long enough to surrender the game’s first run on a home run to Kris Bryant leading off the 7th inning. This was KB’s 18th homer of the year.
