Cubs play final game at HoHoKam Stadium

Posted: Updated:

MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Kelly Shoppach hit a two-out, two-run double in the eighth inning, spoiling the Chicago Cubs' final game at HoHoKam Stadium by leading the Seattle Mariners to a 6-4 victory on Thursday.

The Cubs closed out their stay at HoHoKam Stadium with a 6-4 loss Thursday to the Seattle Mariners in front of a crowd of 11,635.

After 17 years at HoHoKam, the Cubs will move to their new facility being built in Mesa. HoHoKam will be dormant for spring training next season before the Oakland Athletics move in for the 2015 season.

Cubs left fielder Alfonso Soriano hit a two-run home run in the third innings off Mariners' No. 2 starter Hisashi Iwakuma. Iwakuma was scheduled to throw 80 pitches but came out after four innings because of a dry skin patch on his fingertips. He said through an interpreter that it happens every spring and it was nothing to be worried about.
