A's Walk Their Way to Victory at Fitch Park

Joseph Rodriguez walked with the bases loaded to force-in the winning run, as the Athletics took advantage of ten walks to edge the Cubs 7-6 in a Cactus League Extended Spring Training game played Friday afternoon on Field # 4 at the Lew Wolf Training Complex at Fitch Park in Mesa, AZ.   

The game was pre-planned as a five-inning contest, as both teams had only a limited number of pitchers available to cover the innings.

A's Stop the Rosario HR Streak at Sloan Park

German Ortiz belted a two-run double, Carlos Gonzalez drilled a two-run single, and SP Steven Echavarria (A's 2023 3rd round pick and #2 pitching prospect) tossed five innings of one-run ball while allowing three hits and no walks, striking out eight, and retiring the last eleven men he faced in a row, leading the Athletics to a 6-3 victory over the Cubs in Cactus League Extended Spring Training game action Thursday afternoon at Sloan Park in Mesa, AZ.  

It's 4 in a row 4 Rosario!

Demetrio Crisantes laced a triple and two RBI singles, reached base on an HBP, and scored two runs, Adrian Rodriguez hammered an RBI triple and a double, reached base on an HBP, and scored three runs, Jean Walters tripled, reached base on an HBP, and scored two runs, Channy Ortiz smashed a solo HR over the RF bullpen, singled, and walked, and SP Josh Green and four relievers combined on a three-hitter, leading the Diamondbacks to a 9-2 victory over the Cubs in Cactus League Extended Spring Training game action Tuesday afternoon at Sloan Park in Mesa, AZ.   

Cub Long Balls Tie Up Rockies at Talking Stick

Jose Escobar (opposite-field line-drive), Alfonsin Rosario (light-tower moonshot), and Bradlee Beesley (hard-contact blast) belted solo home runs, Anderson Suriel doubled, walked and scored two runs, and Adan Sanchez drilled an RBI single, reached base on an HBP, and walked for the Cubs, and Juan Castillo smacked a two-run double and Franklin Lopez laced a two-run triple for the Rockies, as the two teams played to a 6-6 tie in a Cactus League Extended Spring Training game played Monday afternoon on Dust Storm Field at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick, east of Scottsdale, AZ. 

Cubs @ Diamondbacks: Series Thread (Games 16-18)

By holding on to their 3-2 lead Sunday afternoon, the Cubs collected their first road series win of the season and improved to 9-6 on the season.

A Mule on the Mound and a Rosario Bomb on the Berm at Sloan Park

    The Cubs have also won eight of nine starts by Shota Imanaga, including the first seven.

    Damn. Regression to the mean, or whatever it is, sucks at times. 

  • Arizona Phil (view)

    True. The Cubs have lost Steele's last eight starts going back to last September. Prior to that, the Cubs had won nine consecutive games started by Steele. 

  • Eric S (view)

    According to a Cubs podcaster, the Cubs have lost the last eight games that Steele has started. Haven’t checked it but sounds plausible after last year’s September swoon. Whatever. But certainly not a streak I’d ever associate with Steele. Edwin Jackson, yes. Steele? No. 

    Hope that streak, true or not, ends today.

    h.neris has calmed his game a bit after walking the world in april.

    so far in may... 8ip 7h 3bb 5k

    it's not ideal for a closer, but it's not trash.  he walked 11 guys in 10 innings in april.

    m.leiter has been on another planet all year and crazy in may.  his may 7ip 4h 1bb 13k.

    both guys have only given up 1hr all season.

    cubs out here giving away chances at outs with the defense...not the first time this year...too many times this year.

    i understand 2 of the 3 miscues (so far in the 5th) were wind-aided, but still...damn...

    big OF shot on the bleachers and judging by what i'm seeing, about 75%+ of those baseball-bat "mugs" of beer seem to be sold to the bleacher fans.

    ryne sandberg posted his latest scans show no cancer.

    that's good.  that said, you gotta wait a few years to see where you're truly at with something like stage 4 metastatic prostate cancer.  if it didn't metastasize to his bones, he's already got an advantage with the latest news...that area of metastasis seems to be one of the worst signs of survival with this particular cancer.

    he will be monitored for the rest of his life until his age/health dictates it's no longer neccessary.

    good news for now.  hopefully he's one of the slightly better than 1/3rd that survive stage 4 prostate cancer after 5 years.  this news is a great start.
