TEMPE, ARIZ. (AP) — Los Angeles Angels lefty Hector Santiago kept up his push for a starting spot, pitching four shutout innings Friday in a 3-2 loss to the Chicago Cubs in a split-squad game.

In his second spring start, Santiago allowed only one hit and struck out five. He hasn't permitted an earned run in 6 2-3 innings this spring.

Cubs prospect Jorge Soler hit a go-ahead triple in the ninth. Luis Valbuena doubled and scored in the seventh.

Chicago starter James McDonald worked two scoreless innings.

Angels slugging prospect C.J. Cron, who hit a tying, three-run homer in the ninth on Thursday, delivered an RBI single in the eighth.
