Surriel, Morel, and Noriega Lead Pelicans to Victory on Cubs Backfields

Anderson Suriel smacked two RBI doubles and scored a run, Jose Escobar drilled a single and an RBI double and scored a run, Reivaj Garcia laced an RBI single and walked twice, Rafael Morel belted a solo HR, and SP Branden Noriega tossed 2.2 IP of one-hit shutout ball, as the Myrtle Beach Pelicans edged the ACL Cubs 5-4 in Spring Training Minor League Camp intrasquad game action Saturday morning on Field # 6 at the Riverview Baseball Complex in Mesa, AZ. 

Albert Gutierrez tripled and scored, Geuri Lubo hammered an RBI double and scored a run, and Angel Cepeda collected a double and an RBI single for the ACL Cubs.    

The game was pre-planned as a five-inning affair. 

All four of the pitchers who threw in the game are assigned to the Myrtle Beach group at Minor League Camp, and they are obviously being stretched out to be used as either a SP or as a multi-inning piggy-backer (all four pitchers threw at least 45 pitches in the game).   

Here is the box score from the game: 

ACL CUBS LINEUP:
1. Christian Olivo, CF: 0-3 (4-3, K, 6-3)

5. Leonel Espinoza, RF: 0-2 (BB, K, F-9)
6. Albert Gutierrez, 1B: 1-3 (3-1 3B, K, R)
7. Yidel Diaz, C: 1-3 (K, 1B, K, R, RBI) 
8. Geuri Lubo, LF: 1-3 (F-7, 2B, 6-3, R, RBI) 
9. NO DH WAS USED

ACL CUBS PITCHERS: 
1. Kenyi Perez: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R (1 ER), 4 BB, 4 K, 54 pitches (25 strikes)

suzuki not being timid in RF is fuggin awesome.  he didn't shy away from a catch him and bellinger were challenging for in game 1 (bellinger catch).

Yesterday's and today's Cactus League Minor League Spring Training games between the Cubs and Giants were canceled because of rain. However, there will be a "live" BP extravaganza with about two dozen Cubs pitchers throwing to Cubs hitters on Field # 1 as well as on all four backfields later today. (Only the pitchers mounds and home plate area are covered when it rains, so the rest of the field is not playable). 

The three Cubs full season affiliates (Tennessee, South Bend, and Myrtle Beach) still at Minor League Camp will be departing Arizona on Wednesday, leaving the Mesa (Extended Spring Training) group and the MESA REHAB group behind. 

The Mesa (Extended Spring Training) group and the MESA REHAB group will be combined into one entity (Cubs Extended Spring Training) beginning next Monday.

    Okay, this is completly off the discussion. I have noticed several times that organist John Benedeck has been  playing a phrase from the first movement of Carl Orff's Carmina Burana ("O Fortuna"). He has done some hilariously hip music for opposing players over the last couple of years (succeeding the immortal Gary Pressey), but I don't get this one. I ask the very diverse TCR community to help me out! What's the connection? I can't find any pattern, but maybe it's for two-strike counts. ("O, Fortuna")

    i say we rip the bandaid off.

    hendricks pitches every inning, every day, every game...in a row...until he's on the IL.

    dude threw 4 innings of 4 run ball and lowered his ERA...improvement!

    but yeah, i'm done.  there's a guy with 2 pitches in the pen named ben brown that seems to be doing a bit better than hendricks's 2 pitches.

    steele...how your leg, bro?

    For the love of baseball and all that's holy, please - no more Kyle Hendricks. 

  • crunch (view)

    hendricks still gets some K's, but dude is just throwing complex batting practice.

    sometimes it gets hit where a glove happens to be, sometimes it isn't.

    two pitches, both hittable.

    460ft HR later...1.1ip of perfection is gone.

    HENDRICKS PERFECT GAME THROUGH 1 IP.

    i'm just trying to be supportive over here.  go sportsball.

    No Happ. Not sure if he’s still just day to day. Amaya catching Hendricks. Busch hitting cleanup.  OF is Canario, Bellinger, Tauchman. Cooper DH. Chilly (around 50 degrees) but sunny.
