Cubs lose to Diamondbacks in opener of new park

MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Jeff Samardzija pitched two shutout innings before an overflow crowd in the Chicago Cubs' opener at their new stadium, a 5-2 loss to an Arizona Diamondbacks split-squad on Thursday.

 

     The crowd of 14,486 at the new stadium at Riverview Park set a Cactus League record.

 

     Samardzija, the Cubs' No. 1 starter last season, allowed a walk and a single to start the game, but then got Paul Goldschmidt to fly out. He then struck out Aaron Hill and Eric Chavez to end the first inning.

 

     Samardzija allowed a single to Miguel Montero in the second inning.

 

     Martin Prado had two singles and a run-scoring double for Arizona. Eric Chavez followed Prado's double with a two-run homer in the fifth.

 

     Cubs reliever Jose Veras gave up two runs in the sixth.
