Cubs Hammered By Rockies

(Mesa, AZ) -- The Cubs managed just five hits and were blanked 13-0 by the Rockies yesterday in Mesa. Travis Wood was tagged for five runs in two-and-two-thirds innings in the start for Chicago. The Cubs face the Mariners in Peoria today.

White Sox Clip Rangers

(Glendale, AZ) -- Alex Liddi ripped a walk-off double in the ninth as the White Sox edged the Rangers 7-6 Tuesday in Glendale. John Danks pitched four-hit ball over five innings and Gordon Beckham homered for Chicago. The Sox face the Giants in Scottsdale today.

Wong Homers As Cardinals Fall To Mets

(Jupiter, FL) -- Kolten Wong hit a two-run homer and finished 2-for-5 as the Cardinals lost 9-8 to the Mets Tuesday in Jupiter. Adam Wainwright went three-and-a-third innings, allowing a run on two hits. The teams rematch in Port St. Lucie today.

Cardinals outfield prospect Oscar Taveras is unlikely to make the 25-man roster coming out of spring training. Taveras had ankle surgery last season and is dealing with a tight hamstring in the same leg. Manager Mike Matheny says it will be tough to bring him north if he isn't healthy.
