The nine-run Cub 3rd lasted about 30 minutes and was unusual for an Extended Spring Training game because the opposing manager will usually stop the inning (“ROLL IT!”) before it can get that far. But the Brewers made a pitching change mid-inning, so the scoring continued unabated. Trailing 1-0 after two innings of play, Trey Martin led-off the top of the 3rd by drawing a walk.

Glad tidings from breezy Principal Park where the I-Cubs climbed all over the Tacoma Rainiers and snapped a four-game skid with an 18-8 slapstick win this afternoon. Anthony (Ratso) Rizzo (who else?) paced Iowa with a record-tying performance in support of Chris Volstad's first outing for the team.
