header" for NYCWFFRecord: 6-8-2. Change on 2018: -2. 5-inning record: 6-7-3.You’d be forgiven for having tuned out in the middle of the sixth of the opener of this cross-border double-header. The backs were 5-1 down at Salt River Fielder Pedro Martinez Jersey , looking to be well on the way to their fifth straight spring loss. But the offense suddenly showed up, scoring TWELVE runs over the last three innings, to pull out a victory which looks much better in the scorebook than on the field. Still, can’t complain about Luke Weaver, who went 3.1 innings, and gave up just one run. He scattered six hits, but walked none and struck out three, giving him a Cactus League K:BB of 6:0 thus far. over 6.1 innings. Robbie Scott followed Weaver to the mound in the fourth and struck out both batters faced.Ryan Atkinson was victimized for three runs, but the rest of the pitching was pretty solid. Alex Young was the most impressive, striking out the site on 12 pitches in the eighth. Meanwhile, the backs took full advantage of some sloppy Royals play to score seven runs in the sixth, six of the runs being unearned. All Arizona had to that point was a Jake Lamb RBI double, but DH Christian Walker, C Alex Avila and SS Nick Ahmed all drove in runs with hits, while 3B Wyatt Mathisen and CF Ben DeLuzio were walked and plunked with the bases loaded. Ahmed had two hits and two RBI Max Kepler Jersey , and Walker two hits, while 2B Wilmer Flores, Avila, C Alberto Rosario, 1B Pavin Smith and LF Travis Snider all had a hit and a walk. There was to be no such comeback in the nightcap, played at Hermosillo in Mexico. The hitters were almost entirely stifled: through seven innings, they had only singles by LF David Peralta and 2B-SS Ildemaro Vargas. They finally got in the board in the eighth, after a single by C Daulton Varsho was followed by two fielding errors from the pitcher, and a run-scoring double-play ball. The backs sent only four batters over the minimum to the plate. Taylor Clarke started, allowing two runs over 3.1 innings, on five hits with no walks and three K’s. Andrew Chafin - stop me if you’ve heard this - allowed a double to the first batter faced, than struck out the next two. Joey Krehbiel pitched a scoreless fifth, but Miguel Aguilar gave up a run in the sixth, and Yoan Lopez two in the seventh. I suspect Lopez is going to start the season in the minors, having allowed six hits over four innings Zach Duke Jersey , with as many walks as strikeouts (2). Kevin Ginkel put up a zero in the ninth, his fourth such frame of spring. Tomorrow, it’s another long-distance double-header. The afternoon game is at Goodyear, against the Reds, with Merrill Kellu trying to right a spring which has been some way short of whelming. Then, at 5:10 pm, the rest of the backs down in Hermonsillo will face the Rockies again. Matt Koch gets the start there. CHICAGO (AP) — With the wind blowing out on a warm Saturday at Wrigley Field, the San Diego Padres and Chicago Cubs appeared to be headed for a wild finish.Then Chicago’s bullpen took over.Steve Cishek, Brandon Kintzler and Pedro Strop combined for 3 1/3 perfect innings in relief of Kyle Hendricks, and the Cubs held off the Padres for a 5-4 win.“It didn’t look like a one-run ballgame the way they were pitching,” Hendricks said. “Coming in attacking the strike zone and making huge pitches when they had to, that was awesome to see.”Cishek replaced Hendricks after Austin Hedges’ sacrifice fly trimmed Chicago’s lead to 5-4 with two out in the sixth. With a runner on third, Cishek retired Freddy Galvis on a grounder to second.Cishek then worked the seventh and Brandon Kintzler got three outs before Strop earned his seventh save.“It was a tough day to pitch here,” Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo said. “We scored early and we hung on.”Rizzo and Kyle Schwarber homered during Chicago’s five-run second inning. Jason Heyward added three hits and drove in a run for the NL Central leaders.Hendricks (8-9) allowed five hits, struck out seven and walked none in his second straight win.San Diego became the first team in the NL with 70 losses. Hedges homered for the second straight day http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-max-kepler-jersey , and Manuel Margot doubled in a run.Padres right-hander Walker Lockett (0-2) allowed five runs and nine hits in five innings. Lockett started in place of Joey Lucchesi, who was scratched on Friday because of an illness.Lucchesi was able to do his pregame work on Saturday and was sent back to the team hotel as a precaution. The left-hander is expected to start on Sunday.Schwarber led off the big second with his 20th homer. Addison Russell added a two-out RBI single and Rizzo followed with a drive to center for his 17th of the season, making it 4-0 Cubs. Heyward capped the five-run burst with an RBI single.“I just let the game speed up on me a little bit on me and got a little fast out there,” said Lockett, who was making his second start and third major league appearance.San Diego was hitless before closing the gap with a three-run fourth. Travis Jankowski led off with a bunt single, advanced to second on Hendricks’ throwing error and scored on Margot’s double. Renfroe hit a sacrifice fly with one out before Hedges connected for his eighth homer.ROSTER MOVESThe Padres put outfielder Wil Myers on the 10-day disabled list with a left foot bone bruise. The move is retroactive to Friday.Outfielder Franmil Reyes was recalled from Triple-A El Paso. Reyes has played 38 games for the Padres this season, batting .221 with six homers and eight RBIs in 104 at-bats.This is Myers’ third stint on the DL this season.“There’s a good amount of swelling still in there, but hopefully, in three to five days I’ll turn the corner and start putting pressure on it again,” he said.TURNAROUNDStrop had an easy 12-pitch outing after struggling through 26 pitches and giving up two runs on Friday. He got the save after the potential tying run was thrown out at the plate in another 5-4 win for the Cubs.“As a reliever, you don’t have time to be thinking about rough ones,” Strop said. “You’ve got to be able to put those bad ones away sooner than later and focus on the moment.”TRAINER’S ROOMCubs: RHP Yu Darvish (triceps and elbow injuries) threw a 55-pitch bullpen session. He said he was pain-free and “very optimistic” about returning to the rotation. He has made just eight starts this season and last pitched on May 20.UP NEXTCubs ace Jon Lester (12-4, 3.22 ERA) looks to bounce back from a recent rough stretch in the finale of the four-game series. The left-hander is 0-2 with a 7.07 ERA in his last three starts. Lucchesi (5-6, 3.74 ERA) goes for the Padres.
