Cubs Win Walk-a-thon at Tempe Diablo

Cristian Hernandez belted a two-run inside-the-park HR and walked twice, Andrelton Simmons doubled, singled, and scored two runs, Moises Ballesteros singled, doubled, and drove-in a run with a SF, Cole Roederer walked in all three of his plate appearances and scored two runs, and the offense took full advantage of 13 walks, a HBP, six wild pitches, and a balk, helping the Cubs outlast the Angels 10-9 in Cactus League Extended Spring Training Opening Day game action Thursday morning on Field #3 at the Diablo Stadium Complex in Tempe, AZ. 

The Angels drew ten walks and Jorge Ruiz (RBI single), Denzer Guzman (RBI double), David Calabrese (RBI double), Nelson Rada (two-run double), and William Rivera (RBI single) stroked run-scoring hits in a losing cause.     

The game was called after seven innings of play.

The Angels right-fielder missed a shoe-string catch allowing the ball to roll to the wall, and then Cristian Hernandez ran through the third base coach's stop sign and beat the second baseman's relay home to complete the little league HR.
