Another Win

The Cubs beat the A's today 12-3. The starting pitcher for the A's was Danny Haren who is a hard throwing right hander (who had much success in his first full season last year) gave up 4 hits, 4 runs and in 3 innings. The Cubs starting pitcher was Angel Guzman who went 2 innings giving up a hit and a walk while striking out one and giving up no runs. Todd Wellemeyer gave up 2 hits, 2 walks and a run in an inning. This is not a good thing for Todd because he was awful in his last appearance and coming into camp had only and outside chance of making the pen. It is nice to see Brian Dopirak hit a homer and showing signs that he can hit again after a disappointing season last year. Angel Pagan is still trying to prove he is ready to make the team and hit a hr and a sacrifice fly today. Todd Walker also hit a hr which is good as I hope he wins out the 2b position for the Cubs as he is much better than Nefi Perez or Jerry Hairston Jr. Also Ex-Cub Scott McClain hit a hr off Les Walrond who until looking him up I had no idea who he was. It doesn't look like Les will have any shot at making the team, but he might be trying to show the Cubs he is worth an AAA spot.
