Hey Cubs and Smokies fans!
After the only Spring Training off-day for Chicago on Wednesday, Opening Day starter Ryan Dempster will make his fourth start as the Cubs travel to the city of Phoenix to play Oakland this afternoon. Thus far during the Spring, Dempster has given up two runs in 12 innings while striking out 12. The A’s will counter with Bobby Cramer who sports a 3.00 ERA in 9 innings pitched so far this Spring.
The game will be broadcast exclusively in a live audio webcast on cubs.com with Cubs television voice Len Kasper and the Smokies Radio Network’s play-by-play announcer and 2010 Southern League Broadcaster of the Year Mick Gillispie on the call.
The game begins at 4:05 p.m. eastern time, with the pregame show beginning at 3:45. We hope you’ll get to listen in as Len and Mick describe all the action as the Cubs look to get back on track this Spring!
