The Cubs had a really bad day at both the plate and the mound. Pitcher Jason Marquis did not start out the game very well. He allowed 3 hits, 2 runs, both earned runs, in 2 innings pitched. Like I said not very good. Kerry Wood came in, in the third inning and allowed 3 runs, all earned, all in 1 inning pitched. The rest of the pitchers that pitched for the Cubs only allowed 1 run and 4 hits over 5 innings. Now to plate. Jake Fox hit his first Spring Training homer today off of Jeff Kennard in the 6th inning, Fox also had 2 RBI's. Matt Murton impressed today going 3-3, and so did Soto, defensively. Soto threw out one of the fastest runners in the MLB, Chone Figgins, twice. Overall the Cubs could not stop Torii Hunter who went 2-2 with 1 homer and 4 RBI's.
