Chicago Cubs News

CHC Homepage News
  1. Willson Contreras cried when he found out he was starting Tuesday night's All-Star Game presented by Mastercard in Washington, D.C. Javier Baez had the opposite reaction when he got the good news -- he laughed. Different reactions aside, it was a night of firsts as the two Cubs made their Midsummer Classic debuts.
  2. The ball wasn't flying out of Nationals Park quite as frequently as it did during Bryce Harper's heroic hometown homer binge a night earlier, but it was flying all the same in a dinger-driven, record-breaking 89th All-Star Game presented by Mastercard on Tuesday night.
  3. Kyle Schwarber hit more home runs than anyone else in Monday's T-Mobile Home Run Derby, but unfortunately for the Cubs slugger, Bryce Harper hit one more when it counted most. Schwarber, who clubbed 55 homers on the night, fell to the Nationals' hometown hero in a memorable final round, 19-18, as Harper hit a walk-off homer in bonus time to snap the tie and win the event in front of a packed house at Nationals Park.
  4. Cubs second baseman Javier Baez stepped into the batter's box at Nationals Park and took a few pitches. Then the National League All-Star soon found his groove, and the result was 16 home runs in the first round of the T-Mobile Home Run Derby on Monday, the longest of which traveled 479 feet, the longest of the night thus far.
  5. During their cross-country flight from San Diego on Sunday night, Javier Baez began asking Jon Lester questions about what to expect during his first All-Star experience. Lester, Baez and Willson Contreras will represent the Cubs in the 89th All-Star Game presented by Mastercard on Tuesday night.
