Dodgers 11, Chicago Cubs 7
AT THE PLATE: Alfredo Amezaga started at second base — his fifth position of the spring — and was three for three, scored a run and drove in two. Cuban defector Yasiel Puig had two hits and could have been credited with a third when the Cubs' Scott Hairston, after a long run, failed to catch Puig's 410-foot shot to the wall in center field, drawing an error. Puig scored three times.
ON THE MOUND: Aaron Harang gave up four runs and five hits in a 37-pitch first inning, but the six pitchers who followed him combined to allow five hits over seven innings without an earned run.
EXTRA BASES: Alex Castellanos' seventh-inning home run gave him two homers this spring. The team has three. He also made two splendid ninth-inning catches in center field. Infielders Dee Gordon (shortstop), Omar Luna (third base) and Rusty Ryal (second base) made errors.
UP NEXT: vs. Angels, Thursday, noon PST at Camelback Ranch. On the air: TV: Prime Ticket; Radio: 570.
