4/29 Quick hits

In Cubs’ Minor League news, pitcher Evan Anundsen no-hit Daytona on Tuesday, leading Brevard County to a 1-0 win. It was the first no-no at Jackie Robinson Stadium since Daytona’s Carmen Pignatiello and Jared Blasdell combined for a nine-inning no-hitter on July 18, 2003, against Palm Beach.

* Upcoming seventh inning stretch singers at Wrigley Field for the homestand, which begins Thursday, include the Class 8A state champ Maine South football team on Thursday; actress Denise Richards on Friday, Chicago band member Peter Cetera on Saturday; the Chicago Red Stars women’s pro soccer team on Monday, and Roberto Garza and Chris Williams from the Bears on Tuesday. Sunday is to be determined but will be connected to the number retirement ceremony honoring Fergie Jenkins and Greg Maddux.
