3/8 Cubs vs Reds, ppd rain

The Cubs’ game Friday night against the Reds was called after 1 1/2 innings because of rain. Scott Hairston hit a solo homer with two outs in the first, but it doesn’t count in the spring stats. Nick Struck started for Chicago and gave up a sacrifice fly and also committed a throwing error as he threw to second for an attempted pick off — but there was no one covering second. The game will not be made up.

On Saturday, the Cubs play host to the Indians at HoHoKam Stadium in Mesa. Brooks Raley will get the start and be followed by Alberto Cabrera. Here’s the early lineup:

DeJesus CF
Baez SS
Castillo C
Schierholtz RF
Hairston DH
Valbuena 3B
Chavez LF
Nelson 1B
Watkins 2B

* Looking ahead, Scott Feldman will face Jason Marquis and the Padres on Sunday at HoHoKam.
