Cubs Kris Bryant leaves Wednesday's game after injuring hand on slide

Bryant was 8-for-23 (.348) with a homer and three walks during a six-game road trip the Cubs were trying to sweep Wednesday.

Bryant was forced to leave Wednesday's contest in the first inning after jamming his finger while sliding into third base. Their five-game winning streak entering the game tied their longest of the year. The team has been clicking on all cylinders, and are quickly gaining ground on the NL Central leading Milwaukee Brewers.

Tommy La Stella took over at third base for Bryant, who's hitting.275 with 19 homers and 40 RBIs this season. Los Angeles Angels superstar Mike Trout recently recovered from a thumb injury, and Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa also suffered a torn thumb ligament as well.

For the second time this season, the Cubs have an injury scare with the reigning National League MVP.

The severity of the injury was not immediately known.
