Angels Edge Cubs at Riverview Park

LHP Hunter Green and four relievers combined to toss a seven hitter with eight strikeouts, as the Angels edged the Cubs 2-1 in Cactus League Extended Spring Training Opening Day action this afternoon on Field #6 at the Under Armour Performance Center at Riverview Park in Mesa, AZ.

Tyler Alamo flied out to the warning track in RF with two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the 9th to end the game.  

LHP Jonah Weseley struck out five Cubs in just two innings of relief, and ex-Cub Trevor Gretzky played 1B for the Angels and went 1-3 with a double and a stolen base.    

Jae-Hoon Ha (post-2013 broken wrist) continued his EXST rehab, playing CF and going 1-3 with a line-drive rope single, a walk, a stolen base, and two fly outs to RF.  

Here is the abridged box score from today's game (Cubs player's only):

  • Remember when west coast road trips were a good time to catch up on some reading?

  • I wonder if they'll have to make use of the Guaranteed Rate logo, which is a giant red arrow pointing downward.

  • unsurprisingly, the White Sox continue a tradition of stupid stuff....

    @DannyEcker BREAKING: Guaranteed Rate has purchased naming rights to U.S. Cellular Field. Will be known as Guaranteed Rate Field thru 2030.

  • that was a very kind 3rd strike to hendricks to end the 3rd.

    man on 3rd, 0 outs and got 2 pop-ups and a K...Maddux-lite indeed

  • how did Fowler not score from 2nd on a double?

    by making bad decisions...

  • he held on a popup (in case he needed to tag up) that bounced off the wall then jogged to 3rd. there were 0 outs so that probably played into the casual nature of how he played it.

  • Not watching -- how did Fowler not score from 2nd on a double?

  • uh, Fowler?

  • Well I assume Ross is going to catch Lester in the playoffs, and it looks like Contreras is going to catch everyone else. I could see the Cubs keeping three catchers on the playoff roster as it would give them flexibility and Montero would have a left handed bat with some pop (at least historically) off the bench.

  • Aren't Montero and Ross already in a tie for third catcher?

  • Contreras starting at catcher for a day game after he caught the night before. What do people think the odds are that Montero is left off the post-season roster, or is at best the third catcher?

  • Does he project as a starter, a relief pitcher, or is it too soon to tell?
