Rockies Relentless at Salt River Fields

Jesus Asuaje rifled two doubles, walked, stole a base, and scored a run, Bladimir Restituyo belted a triple and an RBI single, stole two bases, and scored two runs, and Reese Berberet  (RBI double), Julio Carreras (RBI single), and LeeMarcus Boyd (RBI single) contributed run-scoring hits to a 15-hit attack, as the Rockies repelled the Cubs "B" team 6-2 in Cactus League Extended Spring Training game action Tuesday morning on Dust Storm Field at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick east of Scottsdale, AZ.    

The Rockies stole seven bases (no CS) and had traffic on the bases every inning (they left 14 men on base in addition to scoring six runs). 

Caleb Knight (a two-run double and a single) and Fabian Pertuz (two singles, a double, a stolen base, and a run scored) provided most of what there was of Cub offense in the game. 

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

Cubs @ Reds: Hendricks vs. Roark (Game 39)

CHC: RHP Kyle Hendricks (2-4, 3.19 ERA)
CIN: RHP Tanner Roark (3-1, 3.27 ERA)
First pitch 5:40pmCDT

Hendricks has been fantastic in his last two starts. He followed up his 81-pitch shutout with an eight inning start allowing 1 unearned run. Watch out for Joey Votto, 8-18 against Hendricks but cold to start the year.
