7/27/2015 | Beeler gets call to start for Cubs in middle game vs. Rockies

7/27/2015 | Bryant hits walk-off blast to beat Rockies

7/27/2015 | Castro's extra work pays off in wild win

About five hours before first pitch Monday, Cubs manager Joe Maddon, hitting coach John Mallee and Starlin Castro were in the batting cage, trying to find a way to get the shortstop back on track. Castro entered Monday's game against the Rockies batting .139 in July.


7/27/2015 | Epstein's focus unchanged despite tough stretch

Getting swept by the Phillies and falling further back in the Wild Card standings hasn't changed how Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein approaches Friday's Trade Deadline.


7/27/2015 | Younger Games: 25-and-unders dominating

Here are our Top 25-and-Unders, our ranking of the top 25 players age 25 and younger. All players who were 25 and under as of July 1, 2015 -- their age-25 season or younger -- were eligible for votes, and the list was selected by a panel of MLB.com and MLB Network analysts, including two former Major League general managers (Dan O'Dowd and Jim Duquette).


7/26/2015 | Optimistic Maddon riding out rough stretch

After Chicago was swept by the last-place Phillies on Sunday, the Giants have jumped ahead in the Wild Card standings. Fans may be panicking, but not manager Joe Maddon.


7/26/2015 | Ross pitches perfect ninth, homers for Cubs

For the second time this season, David Ross threw a perfect inning of relief, this one in the ninth inning of the Cubs' 11-5 loss to the Phillies. But this time, Ross added a home run in the same frame.


7/26/2015 | Cubs welcome Rockies for series at Wrigley

The season was still young when the Cubs and Rockies last met, not even a full week in when Chicago took two of three. Now, midway through the season, Colorado sits near the bottom of the National League while the Cubs are contending for a postseason berth as they begin a three-game series at Wrigley Field on Monday.


7/26/2015 | Maddon: Sluggers need to get back on track

Cubs manager Joe Maddon believes Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo were unable to take advantage of the All-Star break and rest, and it's showing in their batting averages, which have been dipping.


7/26/2015 | Cubs shake off no-no, treat it like normal loss

Chicago manager Joe Maddon didn't plan on any pregame pep talk prior to Sunday's game after the Cubs were no-hit by Cole Hamels on Saturday, and rookie Kris Bryant said there isn't "any difference between that and any other loss."


7/26/2015 | Phillies put on offensive show in Nola's first W

Maikel Franco and Ryan Howard each hit two-run homers and Domonic Brown had four RBIs to back Aaron Nola, who picked up his first big league win in his second career start as the Phillies romped, 11-5, over the Cubs at Wrigley Field. Chicago hit three homers in the loss.


7/25/2015 | Maddon, Cubs impressed by 'special' Hamels

Cole Hamels took his game to a new level Saturday, throwing a no-hitter in the Phillies' 5-0 victory over the Cubs. The Cubs had gone 7,920 games and 49 full seasons without being no-hit, both the longest stretches in Major League history.


7/25/2015 | Maddon will keep basing closer on matchups

Jason Motte has recorded five of the Cubs' past eight saves, but he's not the team's closer. Manager Joe Maddon says he will continue to go with matchups in save situations.


7/25/2015 | Young Cubs can look to experienced Coghlan

Cubs rookies Kris Bryant and Addison Russell have most likely never dealt with the struggles the two are going through this month. If they need any advice, all they need to do is talk to teammate Chris Coghlan.


7/25/2015 | Nola follows up debut against Hammel, Cubs

Phillies rookie Aaron Nola is set to make his second career start when he takes on the Cubs in a bid for the sweep in Sunday's series finale. This time, he's hoping for some run support to come out on top against Jason Hammel.


7/25/2015 | Stone Cole: Hamels no-hits Cubs

If this was Cole Hamels' last start with the Phillies, it was a beauty. A prime target for teams looking for starting pitching prior to Friday's non-waiver Trade Deadline, the left-hander threw a no-hitter in the Phillies' 5-0 victory over the Cubs on Saturday.


7/24/2015 | Lester gets no-decision despite effective start

Jon Lester didn't look at the Phillies' record before he took the mound on Friday, which was Day 8 of the Cubs' 17-game stretch against sub-.500 teams. He allowed two runs over seven innings, leaving in line for the win before a Philadelphia rally and eventual 5-3 win in 10 innings.


7/24/2015 | Maddon plans to keep youngsters fresh

Don't expect to see Kyle Schwarber in the Cubs' outfield any time soon. Manager Joe Maddon likes what he sees of the youngster at catcher, plus he wants to keep the rookie -- and the other rookies -- fresh for a potentially extended season.


7/24/2015 | Hoyer: Second-half 'solutions are within'

Last year at this time, the Cubs had already made most of their moves prior to the non-waiver Trade Deadline. This year, the club is in the mix for a National League Wild Card spot, and general manager Jed Hoyer's conversations with other teams are more from a buyer's perspective.


7/24/2015 | Happ takes BP at Wrigley; called up to Class A

Ian Happ, the Cubs' first-round pick in this year's Draft, was called up to Class A South Bend, but he took batting practice and got a taste of the big leagues on Friday.


7/24/2015 | Hamels faces tough test against Arrieta, Cubs

Potentially in need of another starting pitcher, the Cubs get a chance to scout Phillies starter Cole Hamels when he takes the mound against Jake Arrieta on Saturday.


7/24/2015 | Francoeur's HR caps rally, tops Cubs in 10th

Cody Asche hit a game-tying double in the ninth inning and Jeff Francoeur smacked a two-run homer with two outs in the 10th to lift the Phillies to a 5-3 victory Friday over the Cubs in front of 41,230 at Wrigley Field.


7/23/2015 | Schwarber wants to be known as catcher first

The key to Kyle Schwarber staying is whether he can catch, and a four-day boot camp in January helped the 22-year-old take a huge step toward being a big league catcher. It also was one more opportunity to show off his hitting.


7/23/2015 | Top 20 jerseys revealed, dominated by youth

The Most Popular Jerseys rankings, traditionally dominated by Derek Jeter before No. 2's exit last year, have a new and younger look with Giants ace Madison Bumgarner and Cubs rookie third baseman Kris Bryant making their debuts on the list at Nos. 1-2, respectively.


7/23/2015 | Teagarden beats Chapman for game-winning hit

Facing arguably baseball's best closer in Reds lefty Aroldis Chapman, Taylor Teagarden sent a 101-mph fastball back up the middle to score Anthony Rizzo from third base and complete the Cubs' 6-5 come-from-behind victory in Wednesday's doubleheader nightcap.
