Navarro Propels Cubs With Big Three Run Blast

Cactus League HeaderCubs-Giants Line Score 2-24-13Full Box Score

  The Cubs exploded for four runs (all unearned) off of Giants ace, well one of them, Matt Cain, in the first inning and that was all they would need as they took care of the Giants 4-3 in their Spring home opener.  The Cubs loaded the bases Fujikawaquickly in the first inning on a base hit by Castro, Rizzo reached on an error, and Soriano registered a base hit that almost took Matt Cain’s leg off.  Cain was hobbled after he was nailed by Soriano’s line drive, he stayed in the game and proceeded to give up a three-run bomb to Cubs newcomer Dioner Navarro.  The Cubs pitching staff made those four runs hold up as they shut down the Giants most of the day only allowing three runs on six hits.  Jeff Samardzija got the start for the Cubs and tossed two strong innings, giving up three hits, one run, and struck out two without walking anyone.  Kyuji Fujikawa made his Cubs debut, and it was impressive, he went one inning giving up one hit and stuck out two.
