After a rain out yesterday, the first round of the bunting competition resumed on Thursday prior to the intrasquad game.
The day’s only controversy came in the Matt Garza vs. Zach Putnam section of the bracket. The matchup was delayed because Garza is still sidelined with a mild strain of his left lat. It has not yet been determined if Garza will have to forfeit or if the competition will simply be delayed.
In other Thursday first-round matchups:
Scott Hairston defeated Christian Villanueva
Logan Watkins defeated Nate Schierholtz
Chris Rusin defeated Scott Feldman
Scott Baker defeated Dayan Diaz
Hisanori Takahashi defeated Brooks Raley
Ian Stewart defeated Javier Baez
Anthony Rizzo defeated Johermyn Chavez
