3/6 Rangers 3, Cubs 2
Scott Hairston hit a solo home run and Brian Bogusevic added a RBI double but that was it for the Cubs as they lost 3-2 to the Rangers on Wednesday. Hisanori Takahashi took the loss, giving up three runs on five hits over three innings in his first Cactus League start. The Cubs are considered Takahashi for a spot in the bullpen as a long relief man. Right now, James Russell is the only lefty set for the ‘pen. Hector Rondon, the Rule 5 Draft pick, had another good outing. In four games, he has given up two hits and struck out two over four innings.
