Cubs Pound Sox

It’s with great pleasure I’m able to use this same blog title for a second time in a week. A very enjoyable game yesterday at Sloan Park, as the Cubs blasted 4 HR’s off former teammate Jeff Samardzija. Starlin Castro, Chris Coghlan, Jorge Soler, and Anthony Rizzo hit the HR’s, pacing the Cubs to a 6-3 win over the White Sox in front of a spring training single game record crowd of 15,342. The game was briskly played at 2:27, which was a good thing, as temperatures climbed over the 90 mark in the Valley of the Sun.

Here are some of John Antonoff’s photos from yesterday, and Thursday as well, when Kris Bryant played in left field, and Jon Lester pitched during a minor league scrimmage at Sloan Park.
