3/13 Cubs 5, Athletics 3

Jake Arrieta gave up one unearned run over four innings and Eric Jokisch pitched three shutout innings to help the Cubs beat the Athletics 5-3 Friday night in front of 8,007 at Cashman Field. Kris Bryant went 0-for-4 in his return home to Las Vegas. Junior Lake hit a RBI single and Addison Russell and Dexter Fowler each hit RBI doubles for the Cubs. This was Arrieta’s second spring start, and his longest outing. Tommy La Stella went 3-for-3.

Chicago now is 2-8-1 in Cactus League play. On Saturday, the Cubs will play two more. Kyle Hendricks will start against the A’s in Las Vegas, while Edwin Jackson will start in Maryvale against the Brewers.
