Cubs Cruz Past Angels

Rochest Cruz laced two RBI singles and an RBI double and scored two runs, Jonathan Soto singled twice, reached base on an HBP, scored a run, and drove-in another, and Widimer Joaquin belted a solo HR over the LF berm, helping the Cubs "B" team defeat the Angels 9-5 in Cactus League Extended Spring Training game action Saturday morning at Diablo Stadium in Tempe, AZ.

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

Cubs @ Diamondbacks: Darvish vs. Godley (Game 25)

CHC (12-12): RHP Yu Darvish (1-3, 5.96 ERA)
ARZ (16-11): RHP Zack Godley (1-1, 6.67 ERA)
First pitch 7:10pmCDT

Darvish went 5 innings and allowed 3 runs to take a loss against the Diamondbacks last time out. He has yet to get through the 6th inning in a start and has suffered troubles with both walks and homeruns this season. The stuff has been there but the command has not.
