June 17, 1970

Giants slugger Willie Mays (615) and Ernie Banks of the Cubs (504) both hit home runs in Chicago's 6-1 victory over San Francisco at Candlestick Park. It marked the first time two big leaguers with 500 home runs added to their totals in the same game. Mays finished with 660 career home runs; Banks 512.

Cubs rookie prospect Willson Contreras made his long-awaited major league debut on Friday afternoon against the Pittsburgh Pirates in a 6-0 Cubs win.

The rookie catcher politely shook hands with the home plate umpire Gary Cederstrom as he entered the game for the first time in the top of the ninth inning. Pirates superstar Andrew McCutchen showed great sportsmanship by giving him a pat on his back understanding that this was Contreras' first moments in an official big-league game.

Sure would be nice if we could get an extension figured out for Baez.

Remember the (2001?) game when Steve McMichael wanted to "have some speaks" with Angel Hernandez after the game?

The ending is wild and crazy!

Tyler Chatwood started and got the win.
Kyle Schwarber homered leading off for the Cubs in the bottom of the first.  Victor Caratini also homered.

MLB Network is showing the unfortunate Game 6 of the 2003 NLCS right now.  It still blows my mind that the Cubs had Prior and Wood at home and only needed 1 of 2 games and couldn’t get it done.  Thank goodness 2016 exorcised the demons of this one. 

That 2003 Cubs team was really darn good at the end of that season.

That was a great game.  With that win the Cubs climbed all the way back to .500 after being nine games under.
