A’s Split-Squad Beats Cubs 8-7

MESA, Ariz. (AP) — Josh Reddick collected two more hits and Brandon Allen drove in another run to help an Oakland Athletics split-squad beat the Chicago Cubs 8-7 on Monday.

Reddick has at least one hit in each of his three exhibition games and Allen already has nine RBIs this spring.

Non-roster invitee Yordy Cabrera led off the ninth inning with a home run against right-hander Tony Zych, lifting Oakland to the victory.

Blake DeWitt hit a three-run homer off A’s starter Bartolo Colon in the second inning. Jeff Baker added two hits, including a double, and scored two runs for Chicago.
