GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers completed their first week of training camp under the lights at a packed Lambeau Field on Sunday night.Coach Mike McCarthy put his team through a lively practice of about 90 minutes before a crowd of 66,397 in the teams annual Family Night event.The special practice at Lambeau, which concluded with a jersey giveaway for some fans and a fireworks display over the stadium, came one week before the Packers start preseason play.This is unique, McCarthy said. We talked about it for the first-year players in our meetings, but until they experience it, you see the wide eyes and the excitement when they walk out there. But at the end of the day, its about playing football, whether youre playing in front of six people or 67,000.The Packers have a longer camp schedule this summer because they are playing the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game on Aug. 7, meeting the Indianapolis Colts in Canton, Ohio.McCarthy values the Family Night practice for how it can simulate aspects of game day, especially in front of a familiar full house at Lambeau. The stadium had considerably more kids than usual in attendance Sunday for a festive evening tailored to families with a ticket price of just $10.Green Bays rookies and other younger players soaked up their first experience in the noisy stadium.Rookie linebacker Blake Martinez was in awe the entire night, from coming out to the field to loud cheers during warm-ups before practice until he left the field after the fireworks show.Oh, it was unbelievable, said Martinez, a fourth-round draft pick from Stanford who is competing for a starting job.He couldnt recall having more than 30 people attend open practices in his college days with the Cardinal.The Packers had a few notable players standing on the sideline for the practice.Pro Bowl receiver Jordy Nelson, right guard T.J. Lang and center Corey Linsley are among six players on the physically unable to perform list. Nelson is recovering from a knee injury after he missed the entire 2015 season with a torn ACL in his other knee.NOTE: More than 75,000 tickets had been distributed for the practice to make Family Night a sellout for the 10th time in the events 16 years at Lambeau Field.

David DeJesus led off the first inning with a home run and Anthony Rizzo had two hits for the Cubs, who won back-to-back series for the first time this season. Reid Brignac hit a pinch-hit homer for the Rockies, who finished a 2-4 road trip. Samardzija (2-5) allowed two runs and five hits. He struck out seven and walked two, but the highlight came on his two-run homer in the second inning. "I need to slow down around the bases and enjoy it a little bit. It doesnt happen too often. We work a lot in hitting. (Pitching coach Chris) Bosio has us hitting out there every day in the cages. Its an important at-bat," Samardzija said. "You just cant accept the out as a pitcher. Its the same out as every other. You roll the lineup over and get the top coming up and it changes the game." Colorado starter Jon Garland (3-4) allowed three runs and seven hits in five innings. He struck out four and walked one. "I dont want to come out of these games, its not my choice. Id like to keep going and see if I can continue to give the team a chance. It almost seems like Im hurting the team more than Im helping the team only going five," Garland said. DeJesus snapped Garlands 18 1-3 scoreless inning streak against the Cubs with a leadoff home run into the left-field bleachers in the first inning. It was DeJesus second leadoff homer of the season and 14th of his career. Samardzija gave up the lead in the second inning on Josh Rutledges RBI single. After a two-out double by Darwin Barney, Samardzija got the lead back on a two-run shot to left to make it 3-1. It was Samardzijas first of the season and second of his career. Yorvit Torrealba grounded into a double play to end the second inning which set off a string of 10 consecutive batters retired by Samardzija. "He just used his whole repertoire tonight. He knew what he was doing tonight, he was pitching, he just wasnt out there throwing. He was mixing it up, keeping them a little off-balanced, broke a lot of bats again tonight," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. Samardzija bounced back from his worst outing of the season.dddddddddddd He allowed a season-high eight hits and seven runs -- five earned -- in five innings of a 7-3 loss at Washington. "Call me crazy, but I thought I did some good things in Washington. I thought I got back on track with my fastball. I just didnt pitch in enough against Washington, but overall when I looked back at the film I was happy with the way I threw. The outcome wasnt what you wanted but I knew I just had to carry that into tonight," Samardzija said. In the sixth inning, Brignac led off with a pinch-hit home run to centre. It was his first career pinch-hit homer and cut the Cubs lead to 3-2. Samardzija got help from his defence in the seventh inning. With two outs, Rutledge lined a double off the wall in left field, Alfonso Soriano made a good relay throw to shortstop Starlin Castro, who was able to throw out Rutledge attempting a double. The Rockies have not won back-to-back games since a season-high eight-game winning streak April 12-20. They have not won a three-game series at Wrigley Field since Sept. 29 to Oct. 1, 2006. "We gotta put together some consistent performances. But overall, weve played fairly well on the road," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. In Samardzijas seven other starts, he endured a shaky bullpen and lack of timely hitting from his offence before getting his first win since April 1. The Cubs added to the lead in the seventh. After a sacrifice bunt by Samardzija, Castro and Rizzo hit back-to-back RBI singles. Castros hit came on a hit-and-run and Rizzo hit a hard grounder between the legs of Todd Helton at first base. Castro came around to score on Sorianos fielders choice to make it 6-2. In the ninth inning, Cubs closer Kevin Gregg gave up a two-out RBI single to Rutledge in a non-save situation. It was the first run he allowed in 11 appearances. He finished the game by getting Wilin Rosario to fly out to centre with runners on first and third. NOTES:
