In an effort to keep some guys fresh for tomorrow’s spring training opener, the Cubs intrasquad game today was called after five innings tied at three. For the second straight day Brett Jackson went deep, this time off of Chris Rusin. The big blow of the game came of Joe Mather’s bat, he launched a three run homer off Trey McNutt. The pitching was the story today, as Chris Rusin and Jay Jackson were dealing. Rusin finished with a line of 3 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 3 K’s, while Jackson was lights out finishing with a line of 3 IP, and 1 K, he was perfect. The Cubs get down to business tomorrow as they open the Spring Training Schedule against the A’s, a full preview is coming up.
