Spring Training Game Thirty: Cubs (14-14-1) vs. Brewers (17-10)
Game Time – 2:05pm C.T. TV: WGN TV, MLB.TV – Radio: 720 WGN, Gameday Audio on
Location – HoHoKam Park, Mesa

TBD (0-0, -.–/-.–) vs. Steve Bray (1-0, 1.80/1.60)

Today’s game at HoHoKam is the last for Lou Piniella’s crew in the desert this spring. After this afternoon’s match-up with the Brewers, the Cubs will make their way to Las Vegas for the annual ‘Big League Weekend’ at Cashman Field.

With the Cubs and Brewers opening up the regular season at Wrigley in a couple of days….look for both mangers to stop by minor league camp on their way to the park and pick up a few pitchers.

The only remaining spot on Lou Piniella’s Opening Day roster is for a lefty in the pen. Sean Marshall is scheduled to throw in relief today and in Las Vegas. Marshall is the front-runner according to several reports, but Carmen Pignatiello has been just short of perfect this spring.

Ted Lilly is scheduled to make the start on Friday against the Mariners.

The Cubs main goal is to end the exhibition season completely healthy. They have shown a lot of improvement over the past 10 days….now it’s time for them to carry it over to the regular season.

Opening Day is just 4 days away!!
