Cubs Get a Wake Up Call and Deliver a Two-Out Rally at Sloan Park
Alexis Hernandez (RBI single), Wally Soto (RBI triple), and Raino Coran (two-run HR) stroked consecutive two-out run scoring hits in the bottom of the 6th inning, and Carlos Garcia hurled three innings of no run / no hit ball to pick up the win in relief, as the Cubs rallied from a 3-0 deficit and edged the Brewers 4-3 in Cactus League Extended Spring Training game action Saturday morning at Sloan Park in Mesa, AZ.
Satchell Norman laced an RBI single with two outs in the top of the 3rd inning and Johan Barrios followed the Norman hit with a two-run single to provide the Brew Crew with an early 3-0 lead.
The game was pre-planned as an eight-inning contest.
