MESA, Ariz. -- Chris Coghlan and Tommy La Stella each hit RBI doubles, and Starlin Castro delivered a tiebreaking RBI single in a three-run sixth to lift the Cubs to an 8-5 victory Monday over the Giants in front of a sellout crowd at Sloan Park.
Joe Panik hit a solo homer and Daniel Carbonell added a two-run double to spark a five-run sixth for the Giants. Starter Tim Hudson served up 10 hits and walked two over 4 2/3 innings in his worst spring outing. The right-hander had given up 11 hits over 12 innings in his four previous starts.
