Cubs rookie Kris Bryant exited Sunday’s game against the Brewers in the fifth inning after a head-first slide into second base.

Bryant hit an RBI single to center field to score Kyle Schwarber, then advanced to second on the throw home. He appeared to hurt his head or neck on the slide into second.

Jonathan Herrera came on as a pinch-runner to replace Bryant.
