Chicago Cubs Shut Out D-backs in Final Spring Game

April 3, 2010 by  

The Cubs and D-backs would face each other once again in exhibition play as the Cubs would come off of a loss to the Diamondbacks the day prior. On the mound for the Diamondbacks would be Barry Enright and for the Cubs, Randy Wells. Enright would struggle for the D-backs after pitching two scoreless innings for the team. In the third inning, Enright would give up three runs to the Cubs as Chicago would take the lead. Enright would give up three more runs in the fifth inning before being removed from the game.

For the Diamondbacks, Mark Reynolds would hit a double for the team early on and the team would be able to muster up seven hits but would not be able to get a run across the plate. Rusty Ryal would turn a double play on defense for the team but Mark Hallberg would ground into one at the plate. Despite Enright giving up all of the runs in the game, he was able to strike out four batters.

For the Cubs, Wells would go four innings, striking out one and walking two. The remainder of the Chicago pitching staff would be able to keep the Arizona bats quiet for the entire game. Chicago left fielder James Adduci would have two RBI for the team as both teams gave the majority of their rosters a chance to play.

The Diamondbacks looked solid the night prior and hope to bring that same type of play to Chase Field as they face the San Diego Padres for Opening Day. On the mound for the Diamondbacks will be Dan Haren and for the Padres will be former D-back Jon Garland. The sold out game promises to be an exciting game to kick of the regular season.
