Cubs Defeat Brewers 6-1 in Spring Training Game

Following a 5-1 win over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday, the Chicago Cubs placed another convincing victory on the board earlier today, defeating the Milwaukee Brewers 6-1 in Phoenix, Arizona.

While the Cubs young prospects continued to shine on the scoreboard, eighth year pitcher Ryan Dempster threw three solid innings, and also caught former Cub Aramis Ramirez by surprise at the plate with a wild pitch.

Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro also hit his first home run of the spring preseason, followed by a Darwin Barney RBI and an impressive showing from Blake DeWitt who started in left field. The Cubs now prepare for the Los Angeles Dodgers tomorrow, while Matt Garza takes the mound in his second start of the spring.
