Spring Training Miscellany: Cubs 3, Giants 2 – March 20, 2011

Chicago Cubs News

Today’s game was light on the roster competitors, but one guy really stood out. Randy Wells was not only excellent today, but he was excellent after some troubles in the first inning. If you’ll recall Wells’ troubles last year, they were almost exclusively early – so this was a good sign. He’s officially (ok, well, not “officially”) the Cubs’ fourth starter. You’ll note that his start today followed Matt Garza, who followed Carlos Zambrano, who followed Ryan Dempster. And who goes tomorrow? Andrew Cashner. Just saying, it might be a good time to enter the Opening Day Contest (win $50)…

  • Koyie Hill went 0-3 while Welington Castillo went 1-2 with an RBI. But you probably knew that without me telling you.
  • Bobby Scales continues to have a nice Spring without much to hope for. He went 2-4, scoring once and driving one in.


  • Ditto Scott Moore who had a double and a walk in four plate appearances. He also had a run and an RBI.
  • John Grabow had his second consecutive successful outing after returning from shoulder soreness. He gave up a hit and struck out one in a scoreless frame.
