Lineups announced.

Campana leading off, Jackson batting in the 2 spot, Rizzo cleanup and Vitters batting 8th. Wells pitching. Not impressed that he walked out to the base line before the anthum and everyone else jogged but I'm into that sort of thing.

Typing this on my iPhone so I will try to keep updated if anyone is at the game I am in section C with a blank Cubs jersey and a blue undershirt.

Got Jeff Belliveau's autograph but the big boys were already stretching. Seems like a nice guy.

So far, Wells is having the best outing of the Cubs minor league pitchers. Daytona is getting shelled.

Wells got through the first with only one hit.

Campana lines out to third, Brett Jackson K's on three pitches and was fooled on the two he swung at. Edgar Gonzalez (dh) reaches on a hit to the far side of third. Rizzo with a sharp base hit to right brings Gonzalez to third after seeing 5 pitches. Castillo flies out to deeeeeeep center field for out three

Reading body language Wells does not appear to be happy to be here.
