Spring Training Miscellany: Cubs Rake, Schwarber Goes Oppo, Edwards Nasty, Record Falls, More

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs closed out their not-quite-real-baseball slate by whooping the defending World Champions, meaning they took both games in this series, and are now the champions.

The Cubs finish the spring 19-13, which was tied with the Brewers, naturally. This is one of those trolling-just-saying situation:

  • Among the regulars who saw time early in the game, the Cubs got chip-ins from Albert Almora, Anthony Rizzo, and Addison Russell, as well as a beautiful lefty-on-lefty oppo shot by Kyle Schwarber:

  • Mark Zagunis tripled, Wynton Bernard continued his spring destruction, and Nico Hoerner got another couple at bats.
  • Carl Edwards Jr. started this game with a normal inning of work, and he busted out a beautiful changeup, which I very much hope he’s mastered and incorporates this year:
