Dodgers’ Guerrero Drives 2 Runs In 5-4 Loss To Cubs

 MESA, Ariz. (AP) — Josh Beckett pitched three scoreless innings Friday before having to leave the game with soreness in his right thumb, but the Chicago Cubs beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4.
 
   Beckett, expected to be in the Dodgers’ rotation, allowed only an infield single to Emilio Bonifacio while walking two and striking out one. He planned to go four innings, but left after three when the thumb, which he accidentally jammed in a door last week, began bothering him.
 
   Cubs prospect Kyle Hendricks blanked the Dodgers for three innings. Hendricks allowed just an infield single by Dee Gordon, while walking one and striking out four.
 
   Luis Valbuena hit a two-run homer for the Cubs. Drew Butera hit a solo homer for the Dodgers.

LA’s Cuban rookie Alex Guerrero  went one-for-one, driving in two runs.
 
   The game drew an overflow crowd of 15,191, another Cactus League attendance record at Cubs’ Park.
