Spring Training Guide to Today's Games
Here is your guide to today's spring training games, as well as a look at some of yesterday's games that most Valley baseball fans actually care about (sorry, Reds fans, there's nothin' here for you unless your boys happen to play against the Diamondbacks, the Dodgers, or the Cubs):
Arizona Diamondbacks: The D-backs split two games this weekend, with a 9-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday and a 2-0 loss to the Cleveland Indians on Saturday. Ian Kennedy only gave up two runs on Saturday, sealing his spot as a starter in the Rattlers' regular season rotation.
Chicago Cubs: The Cubs tied the San Diego Padres 2-2 on Saturday and eeked out a 1-0 win over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday. Cubs pitcher Ryan Dempster struck out nine in seven innings against the Mariners as the offense managed to sneak a late, sixth-inning run to give the Cubs the win.
Los Angeles Dodgers: The Dodgers hung on to beat the Cincinnati Reds 2-1 on Sunday and beat the Seattle Mariners 3-1 on Saturday. Knuckleballer Charlie Haeger went 5 1/3 scoreless innings against Seattle and may have earned a spot as the Dodgers fifth starter.
