Cubs & Angels Tie One Up at Diablo Stadium

With the Cubs "A" team trailing 3-0 going into the top of the 6th inning, Fernando Kelli lined a lead-off triple into the LF corner and then scored on an RBI GO, Orian Nunez clubbed a solo HR, and Yonathan Perlaza singled, advanced to 2nd base on a FO to the warning track in CF, moved-up to 3rd on a balk, and scored on an Ezequiel Pagan infield single, as the Cubs rallied to score three runs to tie the Angels 3-3, and that's how it ended, in Cactus League Extended Spring Training game action Wednesday morning at Diablo Stadium in Tempe, AZ. 

The game was called after nine innings of play. 

LHSP Jerryell Rivera hurled four innings of no-run/no-hit ball with seven strikeouts and Angels top prospect OF Jo Adell (right ankle sprain and left hamstring strain suffered while running the bases at Sloan Park in a Cactus League MLB Spring Training game versus the Cubs in March) stroked a single and a double for the Halos, although a "Designated Pinch-Runner" was employed for Adell both times he reached base.  

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

Cubs vs. Marlins: Hendricks vs. Ureña (Game 34)

CHC (20-13): RHP Kyle Hendricks (2-4, 3.93 ERA)
MIA (10-25): RHP José Ureña (1-5, 5.45 ERA)
First pitch 7:05pmCDT 6:35pmCDT
