WATCH: David Ross And Ben Zobrist Flashing The Leather In Today’s Cubs Win


The Chicago Cubs open the season on April 3 against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (I still cringe every time I have to type that whole ridiculous name out) and the Halos got a little taste of what to expect come Opening Day as the Cubs defeated the Angels 3-0 in Cactus League play this afternoon. Addison Russell sparked the offense with a two-run homer in the fourth, but the highlight of the afternoon came from 38-year-old catcher David Ross.

Not to be outdone, Cubs newcomer Ben Zobrist got in on the action as well, making a great play to his left on a Yunel Escobar ground ball. Javier Baez finished off the play with a nice scoop at first, showing much better defense than he did yesterday in center field.
