Defending champion David DeJesus advanced to the elite eight with a win over Starlin Castro in the Cubs bunting tournament. DeJesus needed 35 points in the final round to beat Castro, and perfectly placed three bunts in a row, first on the “20” spot, then the “10,” then the “5.” Edwin Jackson ousted Casey Coleman, who was the defending champion among the pitchers last year. Jackson will face the winner of the match between Hisanori Takahashi and strength coach Tim Buss.
Here are the elite eight pairings:
David DeJesus vs. Logan Watkins
Michael Brenly vs. Edwin Maysonet
Edwin Jackson vs. winner of Takahashi/Buss
Blake Parker vs. video staffer Nate Halm

Carlos Villanueva gave up one run on four hits over three innings, and that was a solo home run by Pablo Sandoval, in the Cubs’ 9-7 loss to the Giants on Saturday. Brett Jackson doubled and scored on Matt Szczur’s sacrifice fly in the eighth. Steve Clevenger, starting at first base, hit two RBI singles. Logan Watkins added a RBI double and Jackson had a sacrifice fly in the ninth. Brian Bogusevic also had two hits.
“I’m satisfied, even with the home run allowed,” Villanueva said. “It’s the best I’ve felt and I had better rhythm that [third] inning. Sometimes you have to tip your cap [to Sandoval]. I’d rather tip now in spring than in the regular season. It’s a better day but still have work to do.”
Sandoval hit a pitch that was ankle high.
“It was exactly where I wanted to throw it,” Villanueva said, shaking his head.
