3/10 Indians 10, Cubs 6

Jorge Soler, Javier Baez and Kris Bryant hit back to back to back home runs Tuesday in the fourth inning but it wasn’t enough as the Cubs lost, 10-6, to the Indians to fall to 0-6-1 in Cactus League play. Welington Castillo also homered in the sixth.

“I know people are concerned with that — I’m not at all concerned,” manager Joe Maddon said about the Cubs’ record. “I’d like to see us win often to get that lovin’ feeling going on right here. If you’re getting some wins, you’re probably doing some good things.”

Travis Wood started and gave up four runs, two earned, on seven hits over three innings.

“It’s still early in spring,” Wood said. “If it was the season and we were 0-4, we’d start to press. It’s spring and everybody is starting to get their feet under them, especially the young guys. Everything’s going to fall into place.”

* Up next: Jon Lester makes his second spring start Wednesday, taking the mound against the Dodgers and Zack Greinke at Sloan Park in Mesa. In his first Cactus League start, Lester struck out three of the first four batters he faced, then served up a broken-bat single before getting the next batter to ground into an inning ending double play. The game will be broadcast on Cubs.com with first pitch scheduled for 1:05 p.m. MT/3:05 p.m. CT.

Am not concerned about the losses. As we`ve said prior, it does not matter if we lose every blessed spring training contest. It`s actually a good way to get losing out of our system, as the games are as meaningless as they can be. Did not see today`s game, and I see from the box score that we committed four miscues. I`m hoping none of those was a mental error, or Joe is going to be pissed.

Aloha jhosk- I am a little concerned about the errors these past couple of days and hope they can work these out or as you say Joe will be coming down hard on them. I am sure it is still the concept of playing together as a team unit and having each others backs. That is going to be very important in the upcoming days. Did have a chance to listen to part of the game today on the internet-radio and that was fun. Take care now. Mahalo!

Managed to catch the replay this morning on MLB Network,the three homers were boomed,Lake and Alcantara watched a fly ball drop right in the middle of each other,six feet between them,Bryant made a bad throw,all the time in the world that led to the two unearned runs in the second. It is just spring training but reflections of Lake from last year. Oh well just glad to watch some ball,Go Cubs!

Aloha KenlyCub- Today no errors so far and they have lead! Hang in there! I completely changed my perspective a couple of years ago, because I wanted to enjoy the game I love so much. I like you and many others would love to see a championship team in our lifetime…and I think we will. I think it would be cool if the ownership-management team had all of us here on the blog come to a game at Wrigley! I am sure we would be a lively bunch! Take care now. Mahalo!
