Jake Peavy gave up an RBI double to Chase Headley and three runs overall in his first start of spring training, and the White Sox lost to the San Diego Padres 4-0 Sunday.

Peavy gave up five hits in three innings. Cameron Maybin and Nick Hundley each had RBI doubles off the former Padres star.

Padres starter Clayton Richard made his first spring start, too. He walked two in two hitless innings.

Tim Stauffer and Anthony Bass, competitors for a spot in San Diego's starting rotation, combined for three scoreless innings and five strikeouts.

Outfielder Jaff Decker homered for the Padres.

Cubs (ss) 4, Angels 2: Joe Blanton allowed a first-inning solo homer to Brian Bogusevic in his first game in a Los Angeles Angels' uniform, a loss to a Cubs' split squad.

Blanton, who agreed to a $15 million, two-year deal with the Angels during the offseason, allowed just the one hit in two innings, struck out two and walked none. Blanton was 10-13 with a 4.71 ERA for Philadelphia and the Los Angeles Dodgers last year.

Nick Struck, the Cubs' minor league pitcher of the year, made his second exhibition appearance and gave up two hits in three scoreless innings.

Cubs closer Carlos Marmol got into a bases-loaded, no-outs jam in the fourth when Josh Hamilton and Mark Trumbo singled, and Chris Iannetta was hit by a pitch. Andrew Romine grounded into a run-scoring, 4-6-3 double play, and Caleb Cowart lined out.

Brad Nelson hit a solo homer for the Cubs.

Brewers 4, Cubs (ss) 3: Carlos Gomez homered and Taylor Green had two hits to help the Milwaukee Brewers beat a Cubs split squad.

Gomez and Green backed an impressive outing by Brewers right-hander Marco Estrada before he left to join Team Mexico for the World Baseball Classic. Estrada pitched four scoreless innings. He allowed one hit, walked two and struck out three.

Green singled home the second run of a two-run rally in the first inning against Cubs starter Edwin Jackson. Gomez's homer leading off the third came against reliever Drew Carpenter.

Jackson had a rough outing. He gave up two runs and two hits in two innings. He also walked three, hit a batter with a pitch and made a throwing error on an attempted double play.
