Cubs return to White House before tilt vs. Nats

Epstein's swift response to Montero on point

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 17:21:19 EDT

That didn't take long, did it? Reading comments from Miguel Montero after the Nationals' seven-stolen-base track meet on Tuesday night, it was clear there would be blowback from the Cubs. But to eat a little more than $7 million and designate a 12-year veteran for assignment in favor of a second-year catcher, making an already incredibly young team even less experienced? That's hardcore.

Montero expresses frustration after Nats swipe 7

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 10:15:43 EDT

The box score from Tuesday's Cubs game is ugly. The feeling in the clubhouse was worse. Max Scherzer had as many hits as he allowed. Two Cubs errors led to two Nats runs. Washington stole seven bases against Jake Arrieta, who walked six in an abbreviated outing.



Sloppy game out of character for Arrieta, Cubs

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 23:57:26 EDT

Cubs withstand Nats' late rally to win opener

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 01:04:39 EDT

Even though the Cubs have hovered around .500 this season, the Nationals are treating this four-game series as a measuring stick against the defending World Series champions. And this scene at Nationals Park is serving as a potential postseason preview, with the National League East winner currently on track to match up with the winner of the NL Central in October. Their first meeting Monday night was a thriller, as the Cubs staved off a furious ninth-inning comeback from the Nationals to hang on for a 5-4 victory.

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 21:47:20 EDT

Going with the pitch seems like the most basic of strategies, but for a young player still learning his craft at the highest level, it's not as easy as it appears. But Javier Baez continues to work that key approach, and it paid off Saturday. The infielder sparked an 11-hit Cubs attack with a pair of run-scoring hits in a 5-3 win over Miami at Marlins Park.



Maddon rests Rizzo, talks keeping Cubs fresh

Lackey, Cubs fall despite 3-hitting Marlins

Urena has now won his last five decisions.
