|Millar Homers, Doubles, Cubs Beat Angels
|TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Kevin Millar hit a home run and double and drove in three runs for the Chicago Cubs in their 8-7 win over the Angels on Sunday.
The 38-year-old Millar signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs over the offseason.
Cubs starter Randy Wells, who was 12-10 with a 3.05 ERA last season, had his scoreless string of five innings over two spring starts snapped. The Angels got to him for six runs and six hits in the second.
The Angels' Joel Pineiro was also hit hard in his second spring start, allowing seven hits and four earned runs in three innings.
Kendry Morales hit his first spring homer for the Angels. Morales' spring was delayed because of immigration paperwork.
