KRIS BRYANT! Two More Bombs Today (VIDEO)

Kris Bryant was scratched from the lineup today with a sore shoulder, the plan was for him to take over for Anthony Rizzo after one AB, he did.  He then hit two BOMBS, the kid now has SIX dingers on the spring season, this is amazing.  The game isn’t on TV today, but if I get the videos I will post them.

This has been a rather fun day.  First Bryant hit a monster shot, now Jorge Soler has hit one, good Lord, all sorts of power.  Will have the recap after things conclude today.  Cubs lead 8-3 in the 5th, and Will Ferrell struck out, not good enough, clearly.

The Cubs will hit the road today as they take on the Angels at 3:10 PM CST.  Jason Hammel will get the ball for the Cubs looking to rebound from his first start which wasn’t so great.  Today’s game can be seen on MLB.tv with a paid subscription, or listened to through the same device with an MLB.com account.  There were whispers that MLB Network would pick up the game because of Will Ferrell’s appearance, but I’m not 100% sure on that.

1. Denorfia – DH
2. Baez – 2B
3. Soler – RF
4. Olt – 1B
5. Bryant – 3B
6. Lake – LF
7. Castillo – C
8. Russell – SS
9. Szczur – CF

SP – Jason Hammel

Impressions?  Joe Maddon is doing his best to get Mike Olt in the lineup every single day, that should tell you something.  The last time Baez, Soler, Bryant, and Russell were in the lineup there were a bunch of LOUD NOISES, hope that happens again today.

Soler Meme

Travis Wood will make his second start of the spring today as he takes the mound against the Indians.  Wood was very good his first time out, and a second solid performance would go a long way towards cementing that 5th spot in the rotation.  It’s a prospect heavy lineup for the Cubs today as Alcantara, Soler, Baez, Bryant, and Russell are all starting.  First pitch today is at 3:05 PM CST, and the game will be on TV!  Well, it’s on MLB.tv, you need a subscription to watch, but you can listen for free if you have an account via MLB.tv as well.

1. La Stella – DH
2. Lake – LF
3. Alcantara – CF
4. Soler – RF

Cubs Falter Late (Twice) but Dingers Everywhere!

cubs-giants-3-5-15FULL BOX SCORE

The young Cubs provided the fireworks early against the Giants before the bullpen couldn’t find away to get outs, and blew a 5-0 lead en route to an 8-6 loss.  It was a lineup that had Cubs fans buzzing, Jorge Soler, Kris Bryant, Addison Russell, and Kyle Schwarber, oh my.  It was Schwarber who did the heavy lifting as he jacked a grand slam in his first at bat, giving the Cubs an early 4-0 lead.  The Cubs pitching made that hold up early on as Jacob Turner, and Pierce Johnson were on top of their game, Johnson was particularly impressive.

At the plate:

  • Kyle Schwarber was the star at the plate going 1-for-3 with said grand slam.
  • Jorge Soler hit a number of balls hard, he finished the day 1-for-3 with a run scored.
  • Billy McKinney came on late and went deep, he finished the day 1-for-1 with an RBI.
  • Kris Bryant went 0-for-2 with a walk, and a run scored.
  • Addison Russell was 1-for-3 with a run scored.
  • Albert Almora didn’t start but finished the day 2-for-2, good to see.

On the mound:

  • Jacob Turner got the start, and battled command early, he worked two scoreless innings, giving up one hit while walking two, and striking out one.
  • Pierce Johnson was outstanding, he worked two scoreless innings, giving up no hits while walking one, and striking out one.
  • Corey Black struggled, he worked one inning, giving up one run on one hit while walking two, and hitting Hunter Pence, breaking his forearm, ouch.
  • Hunter Cervenka was worse, he was only able to register one out, he gave up five runs, four earned, on four hits while walking two.

cubs-as-3-5-15FULL BOX SCORE

A tie.  The Cubs and A’s tied today.  Mike Olt got the offense off and running early as he blasted a two-out, two-run bomb.  Unfortunately that was all the Cubs could muster as they went scoreless the rest of the way while scratching out only five hits.  The pitching was outstanding as Travis Wood, Neil Ramirez, and Drake Britton, among others, shut down the Athletics offense.

At the plate:

  • MIKE OLT!  Olt finished theday 1-for-2 with a home run, and two RBI.
  • Chris Coghlan was 1-for-1 with a run scored.
  • Newcomer Miguel Montero was 1-for-2 in the tie.

On the mound:

  • Travis Wood got the start, and was flawless.  Wood worked two scoreless innings giving up no hits, walking none while striking out two.
  • Neil Ramirez was stupid good per usual.  Ramirez worked one scoreless inning while striking out two.
  • Drake Britton was pretty good in his first audition for a bullpen spot.  Britton worked a scoreless inning, giving up one hit.
  • Gonzalez Germen had the plate jump around a bit, but he was fairly effective.  Germen worked two scoreless innings, giving up one hit while walking two, and striking out two.
