Unfortunately, things changed for the Cubs when Travis Wood came into the game in relief in the 4th inning and gave up six runs while retiring one batter while pitching only 1/3 of an inning. "What happened today was unacceptable," Wood said. "It can't happen. . .It's time to get it going." A complete recap of today's game can be found on cubs.com.
A crowd of 11,682 (the largest of the spring so far) was at HoHoKam Park to watch the game today in the 80-degree weather in Mesa. It was also 80 degrees in Chicago today, which definitely means that Opening Day in 22 days won't be as nice!
The Cubs and Rodrigo Lopez will face the Rockies at Salt River Fields in Scottsdale tomorrow, while Ryan Dempster will start against the Diamondbacks at HoHoKam Park in Mesa. You can listen to the game in Mesa on cubs.com at 3:05pm.
