Silva Lining For Cubs: Cubs 4, Rangers 1

Carlos Silva threw his best game in a very long while, and certainly his best of the spring, after learning his mother would be admitted to the U.S. on a 10-year visa. Posting four frames of scoreless ball against a starting lineup that could be what a Rangers team might vaguely look like if they were hard-hit by injury, the Rangers didn't finally score until Justin Smoak took Marcos Mateo deep in the eighth, a solo blast that didn't change the outcome of the game.

Surprise of the game: Esmailin Caridad, who threw a very convincing two frames while allowing only one baserunner, Joaquin Arias, who promptly erased himself to end the fifth. It was a very impressive outing for him, and I expect his name will come up in discussions about the eighth inning for the Cubs this year.
