MESA, Ariz. (AP) — Will Venable had two hits and two RBIs, Anthony Bass continued his bid to make the opening-day roster with another strong outing and a San Diego Padres split squad beat the Chicago Cubs 5-1 Saturday.
Venable had a two-run double off reliever Trever Miller in the fourth inning to erase a 1-0 deficit.
Bass, who could be San Diego’s long man out of the pen, gave up one run and one hit with a strikeout in his four innings to improve to 2-0.
Travis Wood gave up three runs in 3 2-3 innings on five hits. He struck out one.
