Chicago Cubs Quick Takes: Summer Camp Edition Part 3
The Chicago Cubs faced the Minnesota Twins for the last part of Summer Camp.
The Cubs squeaked by the Minnesota Twins to win 4-3. The Cubs started off hot with leadoff hitter Ian Happ drawing a walk to set up Anthony Rizzo (back from injury) a 2 run shot. Wilson Contreras later in the game added a solo homer. Gave Jon Lester a 4-0 lead.
The Twins struck back after Dillon Maples replaces Lester in the top of the 5th inning. Maples inherited a runner in Max Kepler, who advanced to third on a passed ball on an Ehire Adrianza that resulted in a single. Kepler scored on another passed ball and Adrianza eventually scored on a wild pitch.
Cubs Pitching came through when necessary. Twins came close, but stranded 9 base runners.
The 2020 season starts this Friday with Kyle Hendricks Vs Brandon Woodruff of the Milwaukee Brewers. First pitch is a 6:10 PM/CST on Marquee Sports Network.
