Cubs featured on MLB Network's 30 Clubs in 30 Days (video) and lose 10-3 to the Mariners

The Cubs lost to the Seattle Mariners 10-3 today.  Chris Volstad was impressive in his Cubs debut.  He allowed one hit and threw three strikeouts over three innings pitched.  Kerry Wood also had his spring debut and allowed one hit during the inning he pitched.  However, Carlos Marmol was another story, giving up four runs on four hits and also hit a batter in the fifth inning, which resulted in the Cubs trailing the Mariners, 5-1.  Alfonso Soriano hit his third homer of the spring in the second inning and Jeff Baker went 2-for-2 today.
