“We definitely had a little chat right after the half-inning in the dugout, just thanking him and basically saying I owe him dinner,” Kazmir said. “It’s unbelievable. He’s got ice in his veins. It’s impressive how young he is and still to be able to be. In just that big of a moment, to be that composed. He is able to make those pitches, especially Machado to start it off. That was amazing.”
Bryant, who was taken over by the Chicago Cubs at the close of the trade. Opened the gap at the right center with a bases-loaded double and one out in the first for a 30-inch lead.
