#Cubs open Cactus League play
The Cubs open the Cactus League season Thursday, traveling to Phoenix to face the Brewers. Think they’re ready?
“There’s nothing like playing a game,” catcher Miguel Montero said. “We’re tired of practice. It’s time to go play and compete.”
Here’s the early lineup:
La Stella 2B
Travis Wood and Kyle Hendricks are each scheduled to throw two innings. This is the Cubs’ 38th consecutive spring in Mesa, the longest active streak in the Cactus League.
You can listen to Len Kasper and Mick Gillespie broadcast the games on MLB.com. First pitch is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. Arizona time.
