3/11 Rockies 13, Cubs 0
Kyle Parker hit a two-run homer as the Rockies hit for the cycle in the third inning, and Nolan Arenado, Kent Matthes and Ryan Wheeler each added two-run blasts to beat the Cubs, 13-0, on Tuesday in front of a Cactus League record crowd of 14,840 at Cubs Park. The previous attendance high was 14,770, set Sunday at Cubs Park when Chicago played host to Milwaukee. Travis Wood took the loss, giving up five runs over 2 2/3 innings.
* James McDonald will make his second spring start on Wednesday when the Cubs travel to Peoria, Ariz., to face the Mariners in a rare night game. McDonald, 29, had a tough time last season with the Pirates. He was limited to six games because of shoulder issues, and posted a 2-2 record and 5.76 ERA. Pittsburgh designated him for assignment in September, and outrighted him to Triple-A Indianapolis but McDonald refused the assignment, and elected free agency. The game will be broadcast on Cubs.com, and you can watch on MLB.TV, although it will be the Seattle feed.
