Kris Bryant, the much-heralded Chicago Cubs rookie, has experienced a number of firsts this season. But Monday night might have been most thrilling of them. Bryant crushed a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth, erasing a one-run deficit and giving the Cubs a 9-8 victory over the Colorado Rockies. [ Play a Daily Fantasy contest for cash today! ] Yep, the ol’ walk-off homer. It was the first of Bryant’s young career, and as you can see, he and his teammates made the moment memorable. The Wrigley Field crowd, of course, loved every second too. “The last three or four games, I’ve hit five or six to the warning track and that’s obviously frustrating,” Bryant told reporters after the game . “I believe in baseball gods and I believe they pay you back, and I guess I got one today. It worked out for us. It was a really good win, that’s for sure.”

The Oakland Athletics have lost four in a row and already traded one of their top pitchers when they sent Scott Kazmir to Houston. It’s been over a half-century since an entire league was within nine games of a postseason spot at this point in the year, and what’s happening in the AL speaks not only to the effect of an extra wild card – but also to a level of parity that has become the norm in baseball in recent years. On the morning of July 27, 1958, the entire eight-team National League was within 8 1/2 games of first place, according to STATS LLC. There were no divisions and no wild cards back then, so you had to finish first to make the postseason.

The Kansas City Royals acquired Johnny Cueto in a trade with Cincinnati on Sunday, sending three prospects to the Reds for a legitimate ace for the front of their beleaguered rotation. Kansas City has the best record in the American League after it lost to San Francisco in Game 7 of the World Series last October. The Royals last won the title in 1985, and the trade was greeted with a loud ovation when it was announced during the third inning of Kansas City’s home game against Houston on Sunday afternoon.
