Heyward leads Cubs in 11-1 romp over Padres
PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) Jason Heyward went 2-for-4 with two doubles and three RBI in the Chicago Cubs' 11-1 win over San Diego on Tuesday.
The Cubs struck for five runs in the first inning off Padres pitcher Tyson Ross, who has already been named the opening day starter. Javier Baez drove in two with a single and Tim Federowicz doubled in a run, as did hot-hitting prospect Jeimer Candelario.
Dexter Fowler walked twice and scored twice for Chicago.
Ross only got one batter out, allowing four hits, three walks and five runs earned. Philip Humber took over after a third of an inning.
Alexei Ramirez's sacrifice fly gave the Padres their only run of the game. Projected closer Fernando Rodney pitched a scoreless inning with a strikeout.
