Adan Sanchez Leads Fast & Furious Cub Charge to Tie at Sloan Park

Adan Sanchez doubled and scored in the 5th and belted a three-run HR in the 6th, Ke'Shun Collier drilled a two-run single in the 5th that put the Cubs up 4-3, and Geuri Lubo laced a game-tying single in the 6th, as the Cubs rallied from a 3-1 deficit in the 5th and then an 8-4 deficit in the 6th to tie the Diamondbacks Red squad 8-8 in Cactus League Extended Spring Training game action Thursday morning at Sloan Park in Mesa, AZ. 

SP Lorenzo Encarnacion retired the first nine men he faced, Ruben Santana smacked a two-run HR in the 1st inning, and Adrian Rodriguez blasted a grand slam in the 6th for the D'backs. (The Rodriguez grand slam was the second one allowed by Gleiber Morales in the last six days).  

The game was called after six innings of play. 

In EXST Cubs roster news, RHRP Samuel Reyes has been moved-up to AA Tennessee. He was placed on the Tennessee Development List on Opening Day and was left behind in Mesa when the Smokies left Arizona the first week of April.

"Just because it isn't official doesn't mean it didn't happen"


AZ Phil,

Luis Rujano and Dominic Hambley are going to MB.
I don't recall you being all that impressed with Hambley since he's been drafted. He does seem somewhat durable though. Always ready to pitch type of guy.
What have you seen from Rujano in his six innings in Mesa?

    I hope that Perlaza goes on to have a successful career.  On most Cubs teams prior to the current administration, he would have been one of their more highly ranked prospects.  As far as the others are concerned, one or more may well go on to be much better than expected, but unfortunately there is no way to tell which one at the present time.  You can't keep everyone.

    Another one of the nine Cubs post-2023 Rule 9 minor league 6YFA has signed, as RHP Carlos Guzman (acquired from the Tigers for Zack McKinstry at the end of Spring Training) signed a 2024 minor league contract with the Mets. 


    So RHRP Yovanny Cruz (SD), C-INF P. J. Higgins (CIN), and now Carlos Guzman (NYM) have already signed 2024 minor league contracts with new MLB organizations, and OF Yonathan Perlaza is headed for Korea (Hanhwa Eagles).
