Cubs star Kris Bryant had to leave Sunday’s game after being hit on the head with a 96 mph pitch from Colorado’s German Marquez. The ball made a loud sound as it hit off the underside of the flap of his helmet, and it was not immediately clear how much direct contact it made his Bryant’s head. A team spokesman said Bryant had a cut under one eye but passed all concussion tests.
