Angels Keep Walkin' at Riverview

David Clawson belted a two-run HR and an RBI double, Jeremiah Jackson doubled twice and scored two runs, Adrian Rondon drilled an RBI single, walked twice, and scored a run, and the Angels took advantage of eight walks and an HBP to post a 7-3 victory over the Cubs "B" team in Cactus League Extended Spring Training game action Wednesday morning on Field #6 at the Riverview Baseball Complex on John Arguello Way in Mesa, AZ. 

Yovanny Cuevas laced a two-run single with two outs in the bottom of the 9th to drive-in the second and third Cub runs (the first run scored on an error in the bottom of the 1st inning).  

RHP Tommy Nance (oblique/hip) looks like he's about ready to re-join AA Tennessee. Nance retired all six men he faced (K, K, F-8, K, K, K), mixing a 94 MPH FB with an 87 MPH slider and a slow CV. Filthy stuff.  

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

Cubs vs. Dodgers: Hamels vs. Buehler (Game 22)

CHC (11-10): LHP Cole Hamels (3.0, 2.77 ERA)
LAD (15-10): RHP Walker Buehler (2-0, 5.40 ERA)
First pitch 7:05pmCDT

The Cubs earned an exciting victory in the opener last night. The dominant Quintana showed up again and Javy Baez that he can still do . Tonight the crew gets to work putting .500 further in the rear-view mirror.
