Watch: 17 Examples of Kris Bryant’s Clutchness

Kris Bryant slander will not be tolerated. Sure, we can have a discussion about runners in scoring position, but I will not permit the proliferation of the notion that the 2016 NL MVP isn’t clutch. So let’s remind ourselves of Bryant’s several big-time hits.

Game 5 of the 2016 World Series (that the Chicago Cubs won): Game-tying homer in the 4th inning

Game 6 of the 2016 World Series (that the Chicago Cubs won): 1st inning blast
Game 3 of the 2016 NLDS: Game-tying homer in the 9th inning

Game 1 of the 2017 NLDS: Go-ahead base hit in the 6th inning

Game 2 of the 2015 NLDS: Go-ahead homer in the 4th inning

2015 walk-off homer against the Rockies

2015 walk-off homer against the Indians

2018 walk-off homer against the Marlins

2017 go-ahead homer against the Brewers in the 10th inning to bring the magic number to one

2018 triple in the 10th inning against the Dodgers

 

2018 bases-clearing double in the 10th inning against Marlins

2015 game-tying homer in the 8th inning

2017 go-ahead sacrifice fly in the 15th inning

2016 go-ahead homer in the 10th inning

2016 go-ahead hit in the 15th inning

2016 go-ahead hit in the 8th inning

2015 game-tying homer in the 8th inning

And these are just 8th inning or later go-ahead or tying events. There’s dozens and dozens of other instances when he has started or continued a rally in the earlier in the game. Regardless or how or when he’s produced, Bryant is one of the greatest players to don a Cubs uniform and he’s still got plenty of time to add to his accomplishments.

As he once said, “This is the type of baseball that’s super fun to be a part of.”
