Javier Baez slugged a three-run home run, tripled twice, drove-in four runs, and scored three more, Dan Vogelbach crushed a towering two-run home run over the RF screen and onto Camelback Road, and Garrett Schlecht blooped what proved to be a game-winning RBI single to short LF with two outs in the top of the 7th, as the Cubs swept the Giants by scores of 4-3 and 9-3 in an Extended Spring Training split squad doubleheader this morning at Indian School Park in Scottsdale, AZ. Both games were seven-inning affairs. San Francisco Giants 2B Freddie Sanchez (on a rehab assignment at Extended Spring Training) had an RBI double and scored a run for the Giants squad on Field #2, and Brian Nicholson pumped a two-run HR for the Giants squad on Field #1. Here are the abridged box scores from the two games (Cubs players only): FIELD #1 CUBS SQUAD “A” LINEUP: 1. Shawon Dunston, Jr, CF: 0-4 (K, F-7, F-8, P-2)2. Brian Inoa, 2B: 0-3 (3-1, 4-3, K)3a.

Inside The Park Blog: Moments by Bradford Doolittle

CHICAGO | On a perfect summer Saturday afternoon in July of 1995, my girlfriend and I were walking down Clark Street about an hour before a Cubs-Phillies game with no plans to actually go inside the park.
