Cubs end their Cactus League season with a W and head home to Chicago
The Cubs beat the Milwaukee Brewers, 5-3 today in their final Cactus League game of the spring. Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro hit a home in the bottom of the first inning and the Cubs held their lead for the remainder of the game. Travis Wood pitched six innings and allowed one run on six hits and struck out four batters. He will start the season in Triple-A Iowa.
The Cubs have now headed back to Chicago, where they will have an off-day Wednesday, before the home opener on Thursday. Ryan Dempster will start on Thursday against the Washington Nationals at 1:20pm CST at Wrigley Field. The regular 2012 season is finally upon us!
