The Cubs and Dodgers set a Cactus League attendance record yesterday. Check out the note at the end of this column:

The Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers set a Cactus League attendance record Thursday with 13,391 fans, 25 more than a game between the Cubs and Seattle Mariners drew in 2004. All of the top-10 attendance games in Cactus League history belong to the Cubs.

Today's game was noted as "sold out" on the Camelback Ranch ticket windows yesterday.

Ted Lilly returned to camp yesterday after being with his wife and newborn son, and is optimistic that he'll return sooner rather than later. He's still on target to make at least one Cactus League start after throwing a simulated game.

Randy Wells will face John Danks this afternoon. Lineup via tweet from Carrie:

SS Theriot, RF Fukudome, 1B Lee, DH Nady, CF Byrd, LF Soriano, 2B Fontenot, C Hill, 3B Baker and P Wells
