Javier Guevara ripped two RBI doubles and five pitchers combined to hurl a five-hitter with 14 strikeouts, leading the Rockies to a 6-3 victory over the Cubs in Cactus League Extended Spring Training game action Wednesday morning on Dust Storm Field at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick Resort east of Scottsdale, AZ. 

Fidel Mejia laced an RBI double and a single and Mark Malave and David Garner tossed a combined four innings of no run/no hit ball in relief for the Cubs. 

The game was pre-planned as an eight-inning contest, but it was extended an extra half-inning so that all of the Rockies pitchers who were scheduled to throw in the game could get their work. 

RHRP Juan Carlos Paniagua had been on the list of pitchers scheduled to work in the game for the Cubs, but he was scratched after being moved-up to AAA Iowa. 

Here is the abridged box score from the game (Cubs players only):
