Cubs Walk, Run, and Throw A's Out of Fitch Park

Dalton Hurd singled twice, stole a base, and scored two runs, Luis Vazquez drilled an RBI single, walked, stole a base, and scored a run, Albert Hinirio (making his U. S. game debut) smacked an RBI triple, and SP Danis Correa and four relievers combined to toss a five-hit shutout, as the Cubs "A" team blanked the Athletics Green squad 6-0, in Cactus League Extended Spring Training game action Saturday morning on Field #4 at the Lew Wolff Training Complex at Fitch Park in Mesa, AZ. 

The Cubs drew eight walks and stole five bases in the game. 

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

Cubs vs. Angels: Hendricks vs. Stratton (Game 14)

CHC (5-8): RHP Kyle Hendricks (0-2)
LAA (7-7): RHP Chris Stratton (0-1)
First pitch 1:20pmCDT

The Cubs send Kyle Hendricks to the mound for his turn to be good after strong starts from Quintana and Hamels. The righty has lost his first two starts and looked generally out-of-whack. We may see Pujols again; he homered yesterday and Justin Bour is 1-14 against Hendricks. Zack Cozart is 4-12 with a HR against him.
