2/23 Cubs 11, Angels 2

Luis Valbuena led off the second inning with a home run, Junior Lake added a solo shot, and the Cubs scored five runs in the third to post a 11-2 victory Saturday over the Angels in the Cactus League opener in Tempe. Logan Watkins tripled to open the third and scored two outs later on Scott Hairston’s single. Brett Jackson hit his second triple of the game, driving in two, and Welington Castillo and Brent Lillibridge each hit RBI singles.

Lefty Travis Wood gave up one hit, walked one, and struck out two in two innings in his first start. Rule 5 pick Hector Rondon gave up one hit in one inning in his Cubs debut. Dontrelle Willis, who is in the Cubs’ Minor League mini camp and has not pitched in the big leagues since 2011, was on the travel squad, but did not pitch.

Though this doesn’t count, it’s always nice to start with a win.

Glad they brought the bats out, even though it’s spring training it’s nice to see these kids put up numbers like that. I’m curious how Lake looked at 3rd today, sounds to me like Dale has tons of confidence in his ability, how’d he look against some major league hitters today?

I heard Kasper say Lake is also playing the outfield and is impressing….getting ready for LF? We can only hope and pray…

Whoop that’s what I’m talking about! :)
