Angels/Cubs Rally to Tie D'backs at Salt River

Marcus Wilson hammered a solo home run leading off the bottom of the 1st inning, walked and scored in the 3rd, and singled in the 4th, and Isan Diaz ripped an RBI double in the 1st, a two-run single in the 3rd, and another single in the 7th for the Diamondbacks, and Natanael Delgado (Angels), Shawon Dunston Jr (Cubs), and Michael Strentz (Angels) each collected a single and a double and combined to score four of their team's five runs, Wade Wass (Angels) belted an RBI triple and walked, Andrew Daniel (Angels) singled twice including the RBI hit that plated the tying run in the 8th, and Tyler Carpenter (Angels) hurled three innings of shutout ball in relief, as the Angels/Cubs co-op squad rallied for single runs in the 6th, 7th, and 8th innings to tie the Diamondbacks 5-5 in AZ Advanced Instructional League play this afternoon on Whirlwind Field at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick Resort east of Scottsdale, AZ.

The game was called by mutual agreement after nine innings of play.

With today's tie, the Angels/Cubs co-op squad has a record of 5-1-1 through its first seven advanced instructs games.

The Diamondbacks Advanced Instructs squad is at Hi Corbett Field in Tucson participating in the Mexican Baseball Fiesta along with the Reds Advanced Instructs squad and los Naranjeros de Hermosillo, los Yaquis de Obregon, los Caneros de Los Mochis, and los Aguilas de Mexicali from the Mexican Pacific League (LMP), so the D'backs "basic" instructs squad (which had no game scheduled today) replaced the advanced squad in the advanced instructs game with the Angels/Cubs squad at Salt River Fields.  

The Angels/Cubs advanced instructs squad had no game scheduled yesterday, but the Cubs contingent did participate in a full workout on Fields 1 & 2 at the Riverview Baseball Complex. RHPs Dallas Beeler, Pierce Johnson, Corey Black, Tyler Skulina, Matt Brazis, and James Pugliese threw bullpen side-sessions, and then RHPs Blake Parker, Steve Perakslis, and Michael Jensen, and LHP Jordan Minch threw "live" BP to hitters that included Victor Caratini, Dan Vogelbach, Chesny Young, Rashad Crawford, Charcer Burks, Jeffrey Baez, Shawon Dunston Jr, Willson Contreras, and Cael Brockmeyer from the "advanced" group, plus Eloy Jimenez, Jake Hannemann, D. J. Wilson, Kevonte Mitchell, and Michael Foster, who were brought over to the "advanced" work-out on Field #1 from the "basic" instructs work-out on the other side of the complex.
