• Navarro homers as Cubs draw with Astros

    Summary of 5 articles · Updated Mar 30, 2013
    The Cubs scored three runs in the top of the first off of Astros starter Alex White, expected to be the long man out of the Houston bullpen. While Astros manager Bo Porter played his starters in only half of the game on Friday, Cubs skipper Dale Sveum went most of the way with many of his regulars. The Astros had runners on first and third in the ninth against Shawn Camp, but back-to-back strikeouts by Jonathan Singleton and J.D. Martinez ended the inning. He worked closely with new hitting coach John Mallee during spring training to improve his load, hip movement and leg base, and the No. 13 overall pick of the 2008 amateur draft hit .283 with three home runs, 12 RBIs and an .892 OPS during his initial 53 spring training at-bats.
