Watch: Cubs' Kris Bryant Hits First MLB Home Run

(CBS) Cubs rookie third baseman Kris Bryant hit a Kyle Lohse pitch 392 feet to left-center field of Miller Park for his first major-league home run, knocking in three runs in the third inning of the Cubs' game in Milwaukee.

The 23-year-old Bryant hit the home run in his 74th at-bat and 21st game in the major leagues. He entered Saturday batting .274 on the young season. After hitting the home run, he returned to an empty dugout, as teammates and coaches left to the clubhouse as a prank.

Here is the home run, courtesy of @TheBlogFines:
