Cub Tracks slays an egg

Photo by Patricia J. Garcinuno/ Cubs and MLB news — A goose egg, coronavirus concerns, and other bullets Good pitching beats good hitting, it’s said. Both teams enjoyed good pitching last night. Yu Darvish was out for blood. Cal Quantrill hit less bats than his father Paul used to. Craig Kimbrel’s curve looked sick. Mark Grace opined that he was happy to be retired when he saw that kind of pitching. Unfortunately, the Cubs’ bats looked sicker for a long time. Daniel Descalso got the first hit, to lead off the seventh, when Hu was on the mound. And that opened the floodgates. Al...

Cubs 6, Reds 6: Tying one on

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports Tyler Chatwood threw well, and Craig Kimbrel made his 2020 debut. Some minor-league and non-roster Cubs put two runs across the plate off Reds reliever Cody Reed in the ninth inning, helped out by an error, and so the game wound up in a 6-6 tie Wednesday afternoon, but as usual for spring training, pay no attention to the final score. It means nothing. What did mean something in this game was a fine outing from Tyler Chatwood. He threw three innings and struck out five. He allowed one hit, a solo homer by Derek Dietrich.
