Chris Volstad leads the Cubs to a "W" over the Giants; Cubs spring roster down to 55 players

The Cubs earn another "W" in the Cactus League by beating the San Francisco Giants, 5-4 in Scottsdale.  Chris Volstad started for the Cubs and continued to impress by pitching three scoreless innings while allowing just two hits.  Volstad even got a single and ended up scoring.  "I don't know what happened," Volstad said. "That first swing was pretty terrible. I guess I fooled them."  The Cubs now have a spring record of 6-4.  Here's a link to a complete game recap on cubs.com.
