The Cubs picked up their first win in Cactus league plays. The Cubs also saw a former player that being Tyler Colvin whom got the start today and had a good day. Colvin went 2-3 with a 3B, 1B, rbi and a run. I will miss Colvin, but a change of scenery may have been needed.

*Hopefully this was a tune-up game for Garza.
*If Russell wants to get a better role in the ‘pen, he has to keep the ball in the field.
