Jackson leads Cubs to split-squad win over Angels

MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Edwin Jackson threw four scoreless innings and Darnell McDonald had two hits, leading the Chicago Cubs to a 4-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels in a split-squad game on Monday.

     Jackson allowed three hits, walked one and struck out six.

     Joe Blanton pitched 5 1-3 innings for Los Angeles and was charged with three runs and four hits. The veteran right-hander has pitched well since moving from the first-base side of the pitching rubber to the third-base side before his last spring start.

     Chicago scored three times with two out in the third. Emilio Bonifacio drove in McDonald with a triple, and then scored on Ryan Roberts' double. Anthony Rizzo singled in Roberts.
