Cubs Home Run Bats Overwhelm Rockies Pitchers at Sloan Park

Felix Stevens crushed an opposite-field grand slam over the right-centerfield fence to put the Cubs on the board in the bottom of the 1st inning, Alfonsin Rosario belted a three-run moonshot HR high onto the LF berm, Geuri Lubo lined a two-run HR into the LF bullpen, Anderson Suriel clobbered a solo oppo-HR to left-center, David Peralta doubled, walked twice, and scored two runs, Adan Sanchez doubled, singled, stole a base, and scored a run, Yahil Melendez singled twice, walked, and scored two runs, Brennen Davis singled, walked, and scored a run, SP Luis Devers fired three innings of one-hit shutout ball with five strikeouts, and Luis Martinez-Gomez hurled three innings of no hit / no run ball in relief, helping the Cubs thrash the Rockies 12-2 in Cactus League Extended Spring Training game Opening Day game action Monday afternoon at Sloan Park in Mesa, AZ.  

Bairon Ledesma tripled and scored and Erick Bautista stroked an RBI double and scored a run for the Rockies.  

David Peralta (on AAA Iowa 7-day IL) played LF for four innings and got three Plate Appearances for the Cubs. This is the first time he has played outfield in a game since undergoing left flexor tendon surgery last October. He was working out in LF at the end of last week, making throws from LF to home plate without any apparent problem. (He has been DH-ing all Spring and has been raking at the plate).  

Brennen Davis (on AAA Iowa 7-day IL) returned to game action (serving as a DH) for the first time since injuring his right arm sliding into a base at Minor League Camp about a month ago. He had also been in concussion protocol for a while after being hit in the helmet with a pitch in an MLB Cactus League Spring Training game the first week of March, so he is just now getting back into game shape.

    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.

    He is on a serious heater right now

    Brennan Davis two out first inning grand salami for Iowa.

    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.
