Seiya is the DH, but Raino Brings the Lumber

Raino Coran slugged a two-run HR in the 1st inning, doubled in the 4th, and singled and scored in the 6th, Ismael Mena smacked a two-run triple and scored a run in the 6th, and SP Daniel Palencia hurled three innings of shutout ball, leading the EXST Cubs Blue Squad to a 7-5 victory over the EXST Cubs Red Squad, in Extended Spring Training intrasquad game action Tuesday morning on Field #6 at the Riverview Baseball Complex in Mesa, AZ.   

Seiya Suzuki served as a DH and batted four times (once in each of the first four innings), and he went 0-4 (6-3, L-7, F-9, F-8).  

Prior to the game, Kyle Hendricks threw a bullpen side session under the watchful eyes of several members of the Cubs organization. Barring a setback, he should be getting close to facing hitters in "live" BP.   

Here is the box score from the game: 

EXST CUBS BLUE SQUAD LINEUP:

Comments

As some of you may have noticed by reading the EXST box scores from the last couple of days, the Cubs have so many catchers at EXST that they end up playing them all over the infield and outfield when they are not catching, with varying degrees of proficiency. (I keep waiting for Ronnier Quintero to play SS!).

    iowa gave away the game in the late innings.  davis got a single and double to add to the pile, though.

    may  9th - .135/.306/.216
     

    may 18th - .279/.439/.689

    in 8 games over 9 days he's gone from washup to prospect resurgence.  it would be nice to get that heat from 2021 back.

    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.
