Szczur homers for Cubs in win over Brewers

Posted:

PHOENIX (AP) -- Jonathan Lucroy made his spring debut Saturday and said he had no problems with a hamstring injury that had kept him out for four weeks and Adam Lind homered in just his second game, but the Milwaukee Brewers lost to a Chicago Cubs split squad 10-5.

Matt Szczur had two hits, including his third home run of the spring, for Chicago. Mike Olt, Wellington Castillo and Adron Chambers each had two RBIs in the Cubs' seven-run third.

Edwin Jackson allowed one hit in three innings for Chicago.

Jimmy Nelson allowed five runs and five hits in 2 2-3 innings.

Lind was out with back spasms for a week. He played his first game Thursday and was 2 for 3 Saturday, both as the designated hitter. Lucroy, the All-Star catcher, was hitless in one at-bat.

Also in camp for Milwaukee was All-Star closer Francisco Rodriguez, who finalized his two-year, $13 million contract Saturday morning.
