Spring Training Game Sixteen: Cubs (8-6-1) vs. White Sox (6-11)
Game Time – 3:05pm C.T. – WGN TV ( White Sox Telecast)
Location – Tucson Electric Park, Tucson
Angel Guzman (0-0, 2.84) vs. Javier Vazquez (0-2, 15.19)
While these games may be just exhibitions Angel Guzman has a lot to prove today if he wants to break camp with the big league club in the starting rotation. Guzman has had a good spring; he has thrown the ball well with decent results and good location. In 6 1/3 innings in relief he has allowed 3 runs on 7 hits, a 1.11 WHIP and most importantly he has not walked a single batter.
The Cubs will face Javier Vazquez who recently signed a 3-year, $34.5 million dollar contract and he has been horrible this spring. Ozzie Guillen has not been happy with his pitcher’s performance. In 2 games he has allowed 9 runs on 12 hits, struck out 3 and walked 2 in 5 1/3 innings with a 2.63 WHIP….and the amazing stat is, no home runs.
Granted this is a spring training game, but it is the Sox and the Cubs were embarrassed back on March 4th at HoHoKam….
