Tracy Homers in Cub Win Agianst San Francisco
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Chad Tracy celebrated his addition to the Cubs' opening-day roster with a two-run homer in the eighth inning, leading Chicago over the San Francisco Giants 5-3 Tuesday.

Tracy edged out veteran infielder Kevin Millar for the final spot earlier in the day. He homered off Guillermo Mota, making a bid for a short role in the Giants' bullpen.

Former Cubs player Mark DeRosa gave the Giants a 3-2 lead with a two-run homer in the fourth. The Cubs tied it in the seventh on Mike Fontenot's single.

Cubs rookie outfielder Tyler Colvin, also a newcomer to the Cubs' roster, had a pair of hits and raised his spring average to .457.

Aaron Rowand continued his productive spring with three hits and is batting .479 for the Giants.
