The two teams wrapped up Spring Training play Saturday with a 4-2 victory by the D-backs in the second of two exhibition games at Chase Field.
Now, the season can begin in earnest.
The D-backs scored in the first inning on am RBI-double by first baseman Paul Goldschmidt and a run-scoring single by Mark Trumbo for a 2-0 lead. Trumbo's two-run home run in the third extended Arizona's lead to 4-0.
The Cubs added a pair of runs in the top of the sixth inning on RBI hits from Junior Lake and Albert Almora to make the score 4-2.
Saturday's game served as the final tune-up for Cubs starters Travis Wood, who started the game and pitched one inning, and Kyle Hendricks, who followed him with one inning of work. The rest of the team was made up of Minor League players. In the end, Wood was charged with two runs on three hits on 27 pitches, striking out one batter. Hendricks pitched a scoreless second inning on nine pitches.
Wood is scheduled to pitch Friday in the first of three games against the Rockies in Colorado. Hendricks is scheduled to pitch Saturday.
Cubs second baseman Javier Baez was hit by a pitch on the left hand in the top of the sixth. He was escorted to first by a team trainer and stayed in the game.
Overall, the Cubs finished Cactus League play with a 15-16-1 record, including a 15-9 mark in the club's final 24 games.
The Diamondbacks finished with a 19-14-2 record this spring and manager Chip Hale was pleased with the way things went.
"Especially the way it ended," Hale said. "You want to end on an upswing in your play and teamwork and winning-attitude type stuff. The guys stuck together. ... You try to build that type of culture but you don't know if it's going to go that way until your veteran players act that way, and that was encouraging for me to see."
Up Next: The Chip Hale era in Arizona begins Monday at 7:10 p.m. MST as the Diamondbacks host the World Series champion San Francisco Giants and MVP Madison Bumgarner. Hale, in his Major League managerial debut, will send Josh Collmenter to the mound.
