Kris Bryant ties the knot and Cubs teammates were in attendance

Kris Bryant's last three months have been pretty spectacular. 

The Cubs third baseman ended a 108-year curse, won a National League MVP award and, Saturday, married longtime girlfriend Jessica Delp. 

There were plenty of familiar faces at Bryant's wedding celebration, as Cubs teammates showed up in full force. 

Obviously, the other half of Bryzzo wasn't going to miss the party. 

Had and amazing time at Mr. and Mrs. Bryant's wedding last night!

Jason Heyward also made an appearance. 

Congrats to the Bryant's on getting hitched! Thank you for having us! 🐻💙❤

After hearing about Heyward's now-famous speech during the Game 7 rain delay, one could assume he made a killer toast, right? 

John Lackey was in attendance, too, but not to get a haircut or win a World Series. Apparently, he was just there to rock a stylish(?) hat.

Jake Arrieta gives up five runs in first, Cubs fall in series-opener with Red Sox

BOSTON — Andrew Benintendi hit a solo homer off Jake Arrieta during a five-run first inning, and the Boston Red Sox held on to beat the Cubs 5-4 on Friday night.

Every Boston starter had at least one hit, and Hanley Ramirez, Mitch Moreland, Jackie Bradley Jr. and Christian Vazquez drove in a run each.

Left-hander Drew Pomeranz got the win with six innings of two-run ball, surrendering solo homers to Kris Bryant and Albert Almora Jr. in the early innings before settling in. He allowed six hits and two walks while striking out seven.

Boston has won its last nine interleague games at Fenway Park.

Arrieta logged his shortest start since Aug. 28, 2014, lasting only 4 1/3 innings and giving up 10 hits and three walks with five strikeouts.
