The Chicago Cubs took a trip down to Tucson to play the Diamondbacks and won-dizzled. Which totally makes sense, since the Diamondbacks play their regular season games in Phoenix. Gotta go somewhere for Spring Training, I guess. On to the battles.
- Joey Gathright got a couple hits, a few steals, and is looking more and more likely to be a part of the Cubs bench. Sigh.
- Micah Hoffpauir blasted a three-run homer, but that was his only hit of the day. Hard to see him making the team out of camp, to be honest, but Lou has been indicating he will.
- Esteban German has been given a golden opportunity to make the Cubs, but hasn’t done anything with it yet. Got his first hit. Woo. To the hoo.
- Though the Cubs won, none of the pitchers with a realistic shot of making the team pitched particularly well.
