Game at Sloan Park Was Strictly for the Byrds

Grayson Byrd went 3-3 with two singles and a solo HR and scored two runs, Cole Roederer belted a solo HR, amf SP Jack Petterson and six relievers combined to toss a two-hitter, as the Cubs defeated the Diamondbacks Red squad 4-1 in Cactus League Extended Spring Training game action Thursday afternoon at Sloan Park in Mesa, AZ.

Roederer's HR was hammered high & deep down the RF line and landed in the D'backs bullpen, and Byrd's moonshot hit the Hornitos Party Tent above & beyond the RF berm.

This was Patterson's first game action since undergoing TJS a year ago, working 2.
