Pelicans Brief South Bend on Way to Succeed in Intrasquad Business

Shawon Dunston Jr stroked an RBI double, reached base on a bunt single, and scored two runs, Trey Martin clubbed an RBI triple, stole two bases, and scored two runs, and Gioskar Amaya reached base three times on two walks and a single, helping the Myrtle Beach Pelicans to an 8-5 victory over the South Bend Cubs in Minor League Camp intrasquad action this morning on Field #6 at Mesa CubTown at Riverview Park. 

Frandy de la Rosa roped a triple and an RBI single and scored a run for South Bend in a losing cause. 

Four pitchers threw in the game, with two starting pitchers "piggy-backing" for each squad. Of the four, Erick Leal had the worst outing, allowing five runs on eight hits (including two doubles and a triple) and a walk (plus a throwing error and a wild pitch) in just 3.2 IP.  

The game was called with one out in the top of the 8th inning.

Comments

according to the ESPN announce crew, baez has been showing up at the park very early for a while to work on the suggested changes to his batting approach. btw...game is on ESPN. their strikezone graphic layover is annoying as hell.

guess the Astros were right (rotoworld):

Brady Aiken underwent Tommy John surgery on Wednesday.

Last year's No. 1 overall pick left his first outing with IMG Academy last Thursday with an arm injury, and now everyone's worst fears have been realized.

Who is this team ? What have they done with dumb,boring and slow Cubs of my youth ? /so happy

1st inning recap off J. Weaver

Baez single, SB

Russell reaches on FC, grounder to short who went to 3B to get Baez but ball was dropped, by most accounts he would have been out easily

Russell SB

Bryant K (WTF? - Iowa for you)

Soler sac Fly

Rizzo GO 4-3

the good news...motte is throwing 96mph. the bad news...he's got no control/command over it. wow... 0.1ip 3h 1bb 1k 4r/er still, the fact he's throwing 94-96mph is at least a good sign of his pre-injury self.

k.bryant with an OF assist...along with the ROY/MVP he's going to win this year, he'll probably get a gold glove, too. good for him.

curt schilling pretending to listen to theo is unnerving and amusing. props to theo for going on air to keep up his b/s "no, seriously you guys, this has nothing to do with service time" campaign. he's taking some hardball questions from schilling.

Rooftop owner under reporting attendance? ~fans self~ Dave McKinney ‏@davemckinney 18m Skybox on Sheffield owner Marc Hamid indicted in $600,000 scheme to defraud the Cubs, state, city & county, US attorney's office announces. Get ready to eat a big sh!tsandwich, roofies.

Len and JD on CSN for Cubs today vs WSux Samardzija vs Hammel /bold prediction Samardzija will be on his 4th team in 13 months

Even without Bryant in there, this might be the best Cubs lineup (or at least best 1-5) since 2008. Am I mistaken?

i'm just gonna call everyone by the first letter in their last name followed by "dawg." c-dawg, it is. this is going to get weird with castro c-dawg around...and if welly c-dawg doesn't get traded.

looks like the cubs have a bullpen problem...p.coke is making one hell of a strong showing this spring. 7ip 3h 2bb 5k 0r/er that said, he's been getting those numbers off a chunk of late-inning-quality spring bats. maddon doesn't seem to be employing any "bullpen start" days this spring, where a chunk of relievers go the first few innings vs better quality bats. heck, that practice seems to have fallen out of favor all over mlb at this point...used to be a bit more common, especially on split squad days.
