For the record
Minor-league left-hander Chris Rusin threw 51/3 scoreless innings, allowing two hits without a walk and lowering his ERA to 0.90 (10 innings). Rusin is expected to open the season at Class AAA Iowa.
The Cubs’ infield committed errors at three positions on one of the final days of a spring training that emphasized fundamentals. The upshot: None led to any runs.
New leadoff man David DeJesus, who got off to a slow start this spring, singled leading off the first inning and opened a three-run sixth by dragging a bunt single down the first-base line.
Bullpen favorite Shawn Camp got the final two outs of the sixth, then pitched a 1-2-3 seventh. He struck out three, including two in the seventh. Camp was the only Cubs pitcher in the game still in big-league camp.
Cubs (15-16) at Diamondbacks (13-17), 3:10 p.m., cubs.com (audio). Jay Jackson, Kerry Wood and Manny Corpas are scheduled to pitch. No. 3 starter Jeff Samardzija tunes up for his season debut April 8 with a start on the minor-league side.
