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.  

Here is the abridged box score from the game (Cubs players only):  

CUBS LINEUP:

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.  

Cubs 2024 Rule 5 Draft and Minor League Free-Agent Watch List

4/18 UPDATE: 

The Cubs have signed free-agent RHP Julio Teheran to a 2024 minor league contract. 

Because he has Article XIX-A rights (meaning he has accrued at least five years of MLB Service Time), Teheran cannot be sent to the minors (optioned or outrighted) without his consent if he is added to the 40 at some point in 2024.  
 

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. Michael Busch "drives the bus" to Arizona next, where he'll have a chance to continue his current four-game homerun streak against the 8-8 Diamondbacks. See below for matchups. 

 

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

Alfonsin Rosario crushed a towering solo HR high onto the LF berm (his second HR this week), singled, reached base on an HBP, and stole a base, and Anderson Suriel belted an RBI triple for the Cubs, and Jairo Pomares cracked a solo HR and a single, and Charlie Szykowny singled, doubled, walked, and scored two runs for the Giants, as the two teams played to a 5-5 tie in Cactus League Extended Spring Training game action Friday afternoon at Sloan Park in Mesa, AZ. 

The game was called after seven innings of play.

    Okay, this is completly off the discussion. I have noticed several times that organist John Benedeck has been  playing a phrase from the first movement of Carl Orff's Carmina Burana ("O Fortuna"). He has done some hilariously hip music for opposing players over the last couple of years (succeeding the immortal Gary Pressey), but I don't get this one. I ask the very diverse TCR community to help me out! What's the connection? I can't find any pattern, but maybe it's for two-strike counts. ("O, Fortuna")

    i say we rip the bandaid off.

    hendricks pitches every inning, every day, every game...in a row...until he's on the IL.

    dude threw 4 innings of 4 run ball and lowered his ERA...improvement!

    but yeah, i'm done.  there's a guy with 2 pitches in the pen named ben brown that seems to be doing a bit better than hendricks's 2 pitches.

    steele...how your leg, bro?

    For the love of baseball and all that's holy, please - no more Kyle Hendricks. 

  • crunch (view)

    hendricks still gets some K's, but dude is just throwing complex batting practice.

    sometimes it gets hit where a glove happens to be, sometimes it isn't.

    two pitches, both hittable.

    460ft HR later...1.1ip of perfection is gone.

    HENDRICKS PERFECT GAME THROUGH 1 IP.

    i'm just trying to be supportive over here.  go sportsball.

    No Happ. Not sure if he’s still just day to day. Amaya catching Hendricks. Busch hitting cleanup.  OF is Canario, Bellinger, Tauchman. Cooper DH. Chilly (around 50 degrees) but sunny.
