Hunter Feduccia drives in five runs as Dodgers beat Cubs

THE GAME: Hunter Feduccia drove in five runs with a three-run home run in the seventh inning and a double in the eighth, lifting the Dodgers to a 9-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs on a cold, windy Sunday afternoon at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Ariz.

PITCHING REPORT: Shelby Miller had a rough outing and couldn’t get through the second inning. He faced six batters, retired just two and gave up three runs on a double, two singles, a hit batter and a wild pitch. He also drew a pitch clock violation. … Brusdar Graterol gave up a single but struck out two in his first inning of the spring.

HITTING REPORT: Feduccia’s homer went off the top of the left-field wall and bounced out. The former LSU catcher was the Dodgers’ 12th-round pick in the 2018 draft. … Chris Taylor and Drew Avans had RBI singles during the Dodgers’ two-run sixth inning. Avans also had a double. Yonny Hernandez had a pair of singles and drove in a run. … Before seeing his first pitch of the Cactus League this spring, Taylor was down 0-and-1. He was called for a violation when he wasn’t in the batter’s box and ready to hit before the pitch clock reached eight seconds. … Top prospect Diego Cartaya walked in his first two plate appearances of the spring. The Dodgers drew 11 walks in the game.

INJURY REPORT: Miguel Rojas singled through the left side of the infield in the third inning and pulled up at first base with cramping in his right calf. He left the game for a pinch-runner. “I think I’m fine,” Rojas said. “This happened to me in the minor leagues, too. The first games, it always happens. I just have to work through it.”

UP NEXT: Dodgers (RHP Ryan Pepiot) at Padres (RHP Nabil Crismatt), Monday, 12:10 p.m., at Peoria Sports Complex, SportsNet LA, 570 AM
