Jackson, Vitters debut as Cubs lose
LOS ANGELES – Top draft picks Brett Jackson and Josh Vitters got a typical Cubs’ welcome to the major leagues: The Cubs blew three leads and lost, 7-6, to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
“I thought we were going to get a little magic for our first game, but we’ll save that for a later date,” Jackson said. “It was exhilarating, but I was disappointed with the loss.”
The outfielder, taken with the 31st overall selection in the 2009 amateur draft, was 2 for 4 with a pair of singles and a walk. Vitters, a third baseman taken third in 2007, pinch hit in the seventh inning and flied to left.
