Friday afternoon The Heckler Spring Training Trip crew headed to Maryvale Baseball Park to watch the crummy half of a Cubs split-squad take on the Milwaukee Brewers. The game was a rout. Former Cub Jim Edmonds hit a two-run homer off Jeff Samardzija in the first inning and the Cubs were down 4-0 before I could finish my first beer (alright..maybe it was my second...or third...)

Alfonso Soriano and Aramis Ramirez were the only regular starters in the field, so we got a good look at hot prospects like Starlin Castro and Tyler Colvin. Colvin was 2-for-3 with an RBI on the day, while Castro went hitless and had a costly throwing error. The Brewers ran away with the game, 12-3, but Cubs fans won the tailgating battle for sure.

Check out our sweet tailgating set-up and some pics from the game...

I love that I'm not showing because I'm trying to push the Brewers fan out of the shot on the left. Booo!
