Cactus League, Week Three

Half of Arizona’s from Chicago and the rest of Chi-Town’s in town for spring training, so what’s not to like about a game between the Windy City’s adopted darlings, the Arizona Diamondbacks, and its favorite sons, the Chicago Cubs? That marquee match-up on Saturday, March 8, at Mesa’s Hohokam Stadium highlights this week’s D-Backs slate. Other Cactus League whistlestops for Bob Melvin’s boys include a game against the Kansas City Royals at Surprise Stadium on Thursday, March 6; split-squad affairs at the Chicago White Sox and San Diego Padres on Friday, March 7; a grudge match at the Colorado Rockies on Monday, March 10; and a game at the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday, March 12.
