"As good as could be expected", Cubs manager Joe Maddon said of Bryant's status after the game.

In the aftermath of the errant pitch, Cubs hitting coach Chili Davis and assistant hitting coach Andy Haines were ejected. The ball made a loud sound as it hit off the left side of the brim of Bryant's helmet.

Bryant was hit by 96 mile per hour four-seam fastball by Rockies right hander German Marquez in the top of the first inning. The Cubs wound up scoring three runs in the first inning, one in the second and two in the third to chase Marquez with those six runs on eight hits over 3.1 innings.
