Brett Anderson Shines under the Lights as AZL Cubs Unload on AZL Giants

Kevin Zamudio collected four RBI (a three-run HR and a bases-loaded walk), Marcus Mastrobuoni singled, doubled, tripled, scored a run, and drove-in another, Jemile Weeks (on AAA Iowa 7-day DL - sprained knee) singled and doubled and scored two runs, and LHSP Brett Anderson (on Cubs MLB 60-day DL - lower back strain) hurled four innings of shutout ball (83% strikes, 7/2 GO/AO, three hits, three strikeouts, and no walks), as the AZL Cubs demolished the AZL Giants 10-4 in AZL pre-season mini-camp game action Tuesday evening on Field #1 at the Riverview Baseball Complex in Mesa, AZ.  

The AZL Cubs drew ten walks in the game, including three by Jose Gutierrez.  

Brett Anderson was so efficient with his pitches that he went to the bullpen and threw an additional 15 pitches after he completed his four innings of work (he needed only 46 pitches to get through his four innings). 

RHP Jose Albertos followed Anderson to the hill and inadvertently got in the way of a throw from catcher Marcus Mastrobuoni after a WP. (Mastrobuoni pounced on the bounding ball and made a "no look" throw to 2nd base). Albertos was struck on the right elbow or forearm while standing on the mound after delivering the pitch (a fastball "spiked" into the dirt in front of home plate), and while he was initially able to continue, his outing was ultimately cut-short. 

The AZL Cubs will begin "official" AZL league play this coming Saturday.  

The game was extended an extra half-inning so that all of the Cubs pitchers who were scheduled to throw in the game could get their work. 

About a dozen Cub "recruits" from the recent MLB First-Year Player Draft watched the game from the third-base side bleachers.  

LHSP Brailyn Marquez (45 pitches) and RHRP Jose Leidenz (30 pitches) threw "live" BP on Field #1 prior to the game. 

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

    unreal.  be crazy to see where this goes in a month or 2....unless it gets too crazy to ignore at the mlb level.

    And another solo shot in the third. He’s not hitting cheapies either. Definitely capturing my attention at this point.

    woo!!!!

    walkoff win!  morel has been involved in at least 4 walk-off wins this year by my count.

    his bWAR is tied for next to last on the team (-0.1)...just saying.

    ha.  the mccutchen AB where he almost homered in the 6th (foul) got me thinking about the mccutchen/furries thing.

    it's a coincidence, but mccutchen does VERY well at the plate when pittsburgh's annual furry convention (Anthrocon) is in town and there's a home game.  all 4 days of the convention will be home games for PIT.

    be on the lookout for mccutchen's twitter account to simply post "Furries" during the week of the convention.

    he's aware of the coincidence and plays into it.

    baseball is weird.  social media is weird.  furries are also weird, but whatever...ya'll do ya'll.

    i love that wrigley is packed, but you can tell a lot of these fans are new(ish) to in-person baseball.

    pop outs that don't even reach the warning track are getting huge fan pops as possible homers.

    that said, it's good there's so much fresh eyes on the field product.  the game needs a constant influx of newer fans.

    i noticed a lot of 20-somethings really getting into baseball during the covid era.  they also really got into baseball cards, but that's another side show in itself.  the baseball card boom died down a bit, but the interest in baseball overall seems to have stuck around.

    "The New York Post’s Joel Sherman reports the Mets offered first baseman Pete Alonso a seven-year, $158 million contract extension last summer."

    22.5m a year.  on one hand, no way his agent would sign that.  on the other hand, the mets obviously see some warning signs long-term...most likey his lack of body conditioning.  he's got a very pre-roids era slugger build.

    imanaga walking the leadoff man on 5 pitches.  really rare for a dude that hates to walk anyone in any situation.
