Final #Cubs 11, Brewers 7

Anthony Rizzo hit a three-run homer, Dexter Fowler and Jorge Soler each hit two-run shots, and Tommy La Stella added a solo blast to power the Cubs to an 11-7 win over the Brewers in the final Cactus League game. Wednesday’s crowd of 13,375 pushed the season total to 222,415, which is a Spring Training record for both the Cactus League and Grapefruit League. The Cubs held the mark, set last year in the first season at their Mesa facility, which was 213,815.

Jason Hammel got the win, giving up one run on six hits over five innings, while striking out five.

* The Cubs have an off day Thursday, and close the exhibition season with two games Friday and Saturday at Chase Field against the D-Backs. Edwin Jackson starts Friday, Travis Wood on Saturday.
