Burks Bases-Loaded Triple Sparks Cubs to Victory at Diablo Park

Charcer Burks belted a bases-loaded triple to ignite a four-run 2nd and later reached base on a walk and an HBP and scored two runs, and Adonis Paula went 3-3 with three singles and two runs scored, leading the Cubs to an 8-6 victory over the Angels in a Cactus League Extended Spring Training game played this morning at Diablo Park Field #7 in Tempe, AZ.

  • This ump blows.

  • So much for pace-of-game.

  • Adam Warren who is 3-1 with a 2.08 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP, and Castro who is hitting 269/303/415?

  • That Molina with the arm out thing was ridiculous and blatant. Wonder if he can get fined for that

  • Looks like the Cubs got short end of the Castro Warren deal so far. He is atrocious. Even in games with huge leads he sucks ass.

    Wonder what they saw in him? Maybe he is a better starter? Ugh!

  • Bucknor tried to turn a 4-pitch walk to LaStella into an interesting AB, but LaStella prevailed.

  • ~shrug~ he's CB Bucknor, he's usually awful.

    But today he called 2 pitches balls that really looked like strikes, one looked particularly obvious. Even Arrieta jawed at him and that's rare for Arrieta. He also didn't bother to ask anyone or notice Molina clearly reaching his arm out to get hit intentionally.

  • Lastella not having much of one either (diving stop notwithstanding but should have been unnecessary if he made earlier play).

  • What's wrong with his strike zone? Just inconsistent?

  • CB Bucknor not having a good day....

    also this...

    Jesse Rogers [email protected]  Yeah, there was plenty of chatter before the game about home plate ump today. Knew he would be a factor.

  • Jake Arrieta gives up first inning run

  • Sigh.

    Ok... maybe.

  • With Paredes moving to 3B, how do you see playing time shaking out between him and Galindo? Do you think Galindo gets starts at 1B? Galindo is more of a prospect than Paniagua, right?

  • Phil, your knowledge of the Cubs Minor League system is unbelievable.

  • This kid would be a key piece in a trade for a pitcher, imo.
