    Kris Bryant heard a voice from the crowd just before he homered to put the Chicago Cubs ahead in the seventh inning Saturday.

    After committing an error at third base each of the previous two innings, Bryant watched Steven Brault lift his leg. That's when he could just make out what a fan had shouted.

    "He was making fun of me because I made two errors," Bryant said. "I hit a home run."

    The Cubs certainly appreciated Bryant's contribution. After getting out of three bases-loaded jams, Chicago snapped a four-game skid with a 2-0 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Cubs moved back into a first-place tie in the NL Central when St. Louis lost to Cincinnati later Saturday.
