9th Inning Rally & Walk-Off Helps Cubs Sweep Giants at Riverview

Dalton Hurd laced a two-strike opposite-field line drive RBI single to right to tie the game and D. J. Artis followed two batters later with a walk-off game-winning RBI single to CF, as the South Bend Cubs (Lo-A affiliate of the Cubs) rallied from a 2-1 deficit entering the bottom of the 9th to edge the Augusta Greenjackets (San Francisco Giants Lo-A affiliate) 3-2 on Field #5, and SP Ryan Williams and four relievers combined to toss a four-hit shutout with ten strikeouts as the Myrtle Beach Pelicans (Cubs Hi-A affiliate) blanked the San Jose Giants (Hi-A affiliate of the Giants) 1-0 on Field #6, in Cactus League Minor League Spring Training game action Sunday afternoon at the Riverview Baseball Complex on John Arguello Way in Mesa, AZ.      

Cubs coaches played Irish Folk Music during morning BP and it obviously really inspired the lads!
