It was fun watching the Cubs play a night game for the first time since that warm November eve just a few short months ago. You know the one. Tonight things were much different but it was nice to be reminded.
The Cubs bright spot tonight came in the bottom of the fourth inning. Ben Zobrist led off with a home run, followed by Addison Russell’s solo shot (click for video highlights). Outside of that, it was all Diamondbacks (box score).
Oh, Kyle Hendricks did stick around for four innings tonight. He gave up two runs on five hits, striking out five.
Stats that matter
- There were seriously no stats that mattered…seriously.
The Cubs lost a Spring Training game. More importantly, Cubs Insider Editor-in-Chief, Evan Altman, is coming to Arizona this weekend. We’re throwing a little party on Saturday after the Cubs take on Japan. Come join us at the Brass Tap after the game.
The Cubs travel to take on the Los Angeles Dodgers tomorrow at 3:05 PM CST. Eddie Butler will take the mound for the Cubs.
