News
Cubs catcher John Baker appeared in just one inning Tuesday against the Rockies, but played a big part in the 4-3 extra-inning win.  

Baker entered the game in the top of the 16th inning as a pitcher, the first time he has ever pitched as a professional. He got through the inning on 11 pitches, while walking one batter and allowing no runs, and then came to bat in the bottom half of the inning.

Baker walked in his first plate appearance of the game, and came around to score the winning run as the Cubs rallied to bring him around.

Baker has been mostly limited to part-time duty this season, and is hitting just .216/.308/.256 in 125 at-bats, with eight runs scored.
