White Sox Pitcher Garcia Goes Two Innings in Split Squad Victory Against Dodgers
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Freddy Garcia, in line to be the Chicago White Sox's fifth starter, gave up a run in his first two innings of the spring to lead the way in a 8-4 split-squad victory Saturday over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Jered Mitchell, the White Sox's 2009 first-round draft pick, had a pair of RBI doubles and scored three runs. Juan Pierre started for the White Sox in left field against the team that traded him this offseason and had a hit in three at-bats with a stolen base.

Dodgers starter Eric Stults, in competition for the Dodgers' final starting spot, gave up a walk in two scoreless innings. James McDonald, also vying to be the fifth starter, gave up three runs on three hits and a walk in two innings.
