One day after Jeff Samardzija turned in the best pitching performance of the Spring, Chris Volstad goes out and one ups him. Volstad was outstanding, going 3 innings, giving up 1 hit, and stirking out three hitters.
Alfonso Soriano has Volstad in a position for the win after he blasted his third HR of the Spring already to stake the Cubs to a 1-0 lead. That’s where we sit now in the top of the 4th, 1-0 Cubs and Kerry Wood is on to pitch.
The Cubs return to HoHoKam Park today to face the Mariners, Chris Volstad will be making his Spring, and Cubs debut as he gets the start. The game will be broadcast by Len Kaspar on Cubs.com today, here’s how the rest of the Cubs lineup.
