|Baker has Game Winning RBI for Cubs
|LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Jeff Baker had an RBI single in the bottom of the 10th inning, giving the Chicago Cubs a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday in a game between split-squads.
Baker, who went 3 for 3, drove in Steve Clevenger from third base for the winning run. Hector Giminez opened the eighth for the Dodgers with a solo homer that tied it at 3.
Cubs starter Carlos Zambrano helped the Cubs tie it 1-1 in the fifth when he doubled down the left-field line and scored on Starlin Castro's single.
Although Zambrano batted in the fifth, he did not return to the mound for the sixth. Zambrano finished with three strikeouts and one walk while allowing six hits and one run.
