Rapid Reaction: Cubs 7, Diamondbacks 5

Jeff Samardzija looked great in the first inning, setting down Arizona in order and then homering at the plate in the fifth. David DeJesus continued a hot spring with two more hits. Even when he makes outs they’re usually good at-bats that result in hard-hit balls. Welington Castillo homered for the second time this spring while Darwin Barney flashed his gold glove, making two nice plays in the second inning to help keep a struggling Samardzija from giving up runs in that frame. Hector Rondon looked good again on the mound in 2/3 innings pitched.
