Hooray! The Chicago Cubs aren’t going to lose every single game of the 2011 season! Well, er, probably. I suppose it’s technically still possible.

  • Kosuke Fukudome led off once again, in another sign of things to come. He had one hit in three at bats.
  • Blake DeWitt continues to struggle, in a sign of things that we hope won’t come. He’s hitless on the Spring after going 0 for 3, and added another error.
  • Reed Johnson got another starting look, and went 1 for 3, as he battles Fernando Perez (DNP) for the fifth outfielder spot.
  • On the pitching side of things, Ryan Dempster got his Spring off to a good start with three solid innings.
  • As for actual pitching battles, Todd Wellemeyer went two scoreless, striking out two. Jeff Stevens (yeah, he’s still around), Esmailin Caridad (yup, him, too) and Casey Coleman each threw a scoreless frame. Scott Maine gave up two hits, a walk, and an earned run in his inning of work.
