3B Kris Bryant made his first starts of the season in the outfield when he played right field both games. His previous 31 starts this season were at third base. Last season, Bryant appeared in 14 games in right field, 50 in left field, one in center and 104 at third base. He called it a "change of scenery" and welcomed the start in the outfield. "You don't have to really worry about the short two-hopper, the in-between hopper that you have to come and get," Bryant said. "I've always liked moving to the outfield here and there because it changes up my mind a little bit. I wouldn't say it's relaxing, but you're not involved in every single play." Bryant said heightened focus can be a challenge at times in the outfield. "That's why I feel it'd be tough to play there every day," he said. "I'd probably get used to it if I did make that switch, but you're thinking about your at-bats more often because there's more down time, I guess. I don't know if that's necessarily a good thing but here and there it might be good."

Bryant has reached base safely in 18 straight games, the second-longest streak of his career. He reached base safely in a career-best 21 consecutive games last season from Aug. 14-Sept. 4.
