Giants 8 (1-1) Cubs 6 (1-1)

Not a very good day for Cubs pitching. Giants 3rd baseman Ryan Rohlinger hit a grand slam off of Les Walrond in the 8th inning, and outfielder Eddy Martinez-Esteve also homered off of non-roster invite Shingo Takatsu in the 7th inning. The Cubs bats had a spark in them today. Mike Fontenot, Luis Figueroa, and Casey McGehee all doubled. Fukudome was 0 for 1,and Soriano went 0 for 2 in his Spring Training debut. Non- roster invites Luis Figueroa and Casey McGehee had the most impressive days both going 2 for 2. Now to the pitching. Carlos Zambrano lasted 2 innings of shutout ball and had 2K's. Rich Hill took over after that and had a rocky day 2 innings and giving up 1 runs and 3 hits. Carlos Marmol closed out the game pitching a scoreless 9th inning.

Roberts Watch- 2-3, 1 double, 2 SB
