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 Diamondbacks lost 4-2 to the Texas Rangers in what was the D-backs last appearance at Tucson Electric Park, the team's spring training home since coming to the desert 12 years ago. Dan Haren gave up three runs on eight hits in 6 1/3 innings pitched.
Chicago Cubs: The Cubbies beat the San Francisco Giants 5-3. Chad Tracy, who just beat out Kevin Millar for a spot on the roster, hit a two-run homer in the top of the eighth inning to give the Cubs the win.
Los Angeles Dodgers: The Dodgers got banged up by the Colorado Rockies, losing 3-1. Dodgers pitching prospect Josh Linblom gave up a two run shot in the first inning and the team was unable to recover.
