2/27 Bunt tourney update
Logan Watkins continued to impress and strength coach Tim Buss advanced in the Cubs bunting tournament on Wednesday. Watkins ousted Scott Hairston, who tried to beat the young infielder by aiming for the 100-point spot on the field in the final round. It didn’t work. Buss beat pitcher Scott Baker to advance, and will face Chris Rusin in the next round. Watkins now faces Anthony Rizzo, who beat Ian Stewart.
Thursday’s matches include:
Nick Struck vs. Edwin Jackson
Shawn Camp vs. Casey Coleman
David DeJesus vs. Darwin Barney
Starlin Castro vs. Rafael Lopez
