SAN DIEGO -- Kris Bryant probably wont get another first-pitch fastball from White Sox ace Chris Sale when the Chicago Cubs slugger bats against the left-hander during the City Series in a couple of weeks.Back in his college town, Bryant showed exactly what he can do with that pitch -- even against a crosstown rival who has owned him.Bryant hit an estimated 410-foot homer on the fourth pitch of the 87th All-Star Game, providing the biggest highlight of a mediocre night for the NL in a 4-2 loss.I just wanted to get a hit, Bryant said. To have my first hit be a home run is special.The NL lost for the fourth consecutive year, which means the NL Central-leading Cubs wont get home-field advantage if they make the World Series, where they hope to end their 108-year championship drought this fall.But it wasnt the fault of Bryant, whose first All-Star hit was an appropriate blast by the NLs 24-year-old leader in homers.Bryant got a warm homecoming in San Diego, where the Las Vegas native spent three years slugging for the University of San Diego Toreros before the Cubs made him the No. 2 pick in the 2013 draft.Being here in front of whats my second home -- I know a lot of people here -- it really felt special, Bryant said. This will be a couple of days that Ill remember for a long time.Homering against Sale was particularly huge for Bryant, who had been 0 for 6 against the White Soxs star, striking out every single time.I guess this one doesnt count toward career statistics, Bryant said with a grin. Im still 0 for 6 with six strikeouts against Chris Sale. Hes one of the toughest pitchers Ive seen. Hes one of those guys you have to attack, because he has strikeout stuff.Bryant became the eighth Cubs player to homer in the All-Star Game, and the youngest since Augie Galan in 1936. Hes only the second player from a Chicago team to homer against a pitcher from the other Chicago team, joining Magglio Ordonez against the Cubs Jon Lieber in 2001.I like playing here, Bryant said of Petco Park. Its one of my favorite places to play. I see the ball really well here. Maybe its all the sun in San Diego.Bryant added some more color to the All-Star Game in a more literal fashion as well: He changed his cleats three times in four innings, showing off a different shade of shoe each time. He did it for Adidas, which sold each eye-catching shoe online while Bryant was wearing them.First baseman Anthony Rizzo also had a hit for the Cubs, who sent seven players to the midsummer classic. Bryant and Rizzo are on the vanguard of the next generation of NL stars, a fact not lost on their teammates.Youre going to be looking at one of the best hitters in the game, Cubs second baseman Ben Zobrist said of Bryant. I mean, he already is. But the consistency is what you have to see over time to become a legend like Big Papi. A guy like K.B., Rizz, theyre just beginning that. Theyve got a lot of time to be consistent to get to that level, but theyre playing at that level right now. Seeing their mindsets, seeing the way they handle the stage, it makes me think, `How could they not? Air Max 270 Clay Green .

Iain Fyfes A-League comeback could be over already as Newcastle defender Daniel Mullen prepares to make his return from injury this weekend.Mullen, skipper Nigel Boogaard and winger Andrew Nabbout all trained with the Jets on Wednesday and are expected to be included in the squad for Saturdays away clash with Perth Glory.If Mullen is fit to play, that would make Fyfe is ineligible and likely spell the end of his professional career.The 34-year-old defender joined the Jets on an injury waiver contract three weeks ago to replace Mullen, who hasnt featured since hurting his knee in the A-Leagues opening round.Fyfe, who had been playing in the South Australian NPL, has made three appearances for Newcastle, providing much-needed voice and experience at the back in the absence of their usual leaders.Nabbout, meanwhile, is certain to face Perth after recovering from the ankle injury that has kept him out for the past two weeks, but Boogaard - who has missed the last month with a knee problem - is considered a much longer shot.Its been difficult becausee the players weve had out have been key players for us, Nabbout said on Wednesday.ddddddddddddBut the boys have dug deep and done well to make do with the players we have available.Its good this week we get a couple boys back, thats exactly the boost we need to go to Perth and try and get a result.To do so, theyll need to shatter the A-Leagues biggest hoodoo.The Jets, who havent won since their second-round shock win over Brisbane Roar, have not tasted victory at nib Stadium for 11 years.Their last triumph in Perth was in the A-Leagues inaugural season, when a Vaughan Coveny goal handed them a 1-0 win.Theyve subsequently lost their past 10 matches in the west, and have also lost their last nine in a row at any venue against the Glory.Jets utility Ben Kantarovski, whose record 153rd club appearance on the weekend was soured by the recurrence of a knee injury, saw a specialist on Wednesday and is not expected to play.
