Cubs 9, Rockies 8

By  | 

Milton Bradley hit his second spring homer and the Chicago Cubs beat the Colorado Rockies 9-8 on Tuesday.

Alfonso Soriano went 2-for-2 with two walks and two RBIs for Chicago. Reed Johnson scored three runs and Bradley finished with three hits.

Chad Gaudin allowed two runs and two hits in two innings for the Cubs in his first spring outing since last Wednesday. The right-hander is transitioning to the bullpen after falling out of the competition for the fifth starter spot.

Greg Smith went three innings for the Rockies, yielding four runs, three earned, and seven hits. He hadn't pitched in a Cactus League game since March 3 because of flulike symptoms.
