JEWISH BASEBALL NEWS — Here are your Daily Highlights for Thursday (3/17/2011):

The odds may not be in his favor, but 35-year-old RF Gabe Kapler is doing what he can to earn a spot on the Los Angeles Dodgers’ opening-day roster. On Thursday, his pinch-hit HR (see video) was part of a four-run 8th inning that rallied the Dodgers past the Arizona Diamondbacks, 6-4. Kapler is batting .250 this spring, with 1 HR and 4 RBIs in 28 at-bats.

Chicago Cubs P John Grabow played for the first time since the Cubs’ spring-training debut, pitching a scoreless 7th inning in a 6-5 heartbreaker to the Oakland A’s. Grabow is coming off of knee surgery, soreness in his throwing shoulder, and a disappointing 2010 season in which he went 1-and-3 with a 7.36 ERA, well above his career ERA of 4.24.
