Cubs baseball created its triumphant return Saturday afternoon in Mesa towards the rival Brewers. While it’s only spring schooling, viewing and listening to the Northsiders again on the diamond is a terrific sight to behold.
By far the greatest story in the recreation was the operate set in by Kris Bryant. Soon after Jason Heyward singled to open up the base of the 1st, Bryant reached throughout the plate to yank a two-operate homer to left. The next inning, the Brewers strike a homer of their personal towards Jen-Ho Tseng to tie the recreation at two.
A Bryant one keyed the Cubs rally in the base of the 3rd inning and new addition Daniel Descalso singled household the go-forward operate to give Chicago a lead they would under no circumstances relinquish. Players from minor league camp would tack on four insurance coverage operates in the 8-4 victory. (Box score)

The Cubs’ minor league players created less errors than the Brewers’ and took benefit of their possibilities. Actually that is how most spring video games are determined late.
There is only 1 achievable remedy for vital minute: Bryant proving his shoulder is experience very great with a season-opening homer.
Stats That Make any difference
- Heyward went 1-for-2 in the leadoff place. Joe Maddon has not dedicated to a leadoff hitter this season, but it seems J-Hey has a shot.
- Javy Baez and Willson Contreras equally went -for-2. Contreras was the specified hitter while Taylor Davis caught.
Bryant was fired up soon after the recreation, telling reporters he wished to prove the doubters mistaken. I imagine I could get employed to indignant Bryant shutting up the haters. Most importantly, the Cubs are again actively playing.
