Edwin Jackson made his pitching debut with the Cubs and gave up a pair of two-out hits over two scoreless innings. Jackson said, "Today was pretty much evaluation, and see where I am. It's all mental. You keep the ball down and you execute pitches, and everything is pretty much good. And you can have a lot of success with the ball down in the zone."
