3/16 Cubs 5, Rangers 1 (ss)

Jeff Samardzija threw five shutout innings, Scott Hairston hit a solo home run and Darwin Barney, Dioner Navarro and Brian Bogusevic each hit RBI singles to lift the Cubs to a 5-1 victory Saturday over the Rangers in Las Vegas. Samardzija struck out three and walked one, scattering three hits. It was an interesting game for Steve Clevenger, who started at first, then switched to third base as the Cubs try to determine if he’ll be a fit as a left-handed bat on the bench. Clevenger handled both spots.

On Sunday, the two teams meet again at Cashman Field with Carlos Villanueva starting for Chicago.

Nope, I walked through Harrah’s to the Venetian, and then back. Not a Vegas fan, especially on a Sat nite
