3/7 Cubs split games vs. Indians, Angels

Kris Bryant hit his second spring home run but it wasn’t enough as the Indians beat the Cubs, 7-2, on Friday in a split squad game at Cubs Park in Mesa. Edwin Jackson took the loss, giving up three runs on four hits over three innings. Jackson said he threw only fastballs because he wanted to work on his command. In the other game, Chris Valaika drove in two runs and Jorge Soler hit a RBI triple to lift the Cubs to a 3-2 win over the Angels. James McDonald gave up one hit over two innings.

On Saturday, the Cubs will face the Reds in Goodyear. Jason Hammel is slated to start for Chicago. Here’s the early lineup:

Bonifacio SS
Valaika 1B
Schierholtz RF
Castillo C
Kalish CF
Murphy 3B
McDonald LF
Soler DH
Watkins 2B
