The Cubs got a big comeback 3-2 win against the Brewers on Tuesday night.

The star of the contest was Cubs catcher Willson Contreras who smacked a go-ahead two-run homer that went an impressive 438 feet in the eighth inning.

Contreras rounded the bases and gestured to the crowd with one finger over his mouth, shushing the booing crowd.

"It feels good to shut up people. If you want to boo me, boo me. I don't really care. But don't get sensitive when I do something like that. ...They picked the wrong guy to throw at. That was a message sent."

Contreras has been hit seven times in his last 14 games against the Brew Crew.

“There’s a lot more games coming up,” Contreras said. “Who knows what’s going to happen?”

The upcoming games against the fiesty Brewers should be fun to watch.
