Andrew Cashner throws 2 1-3 strong innings in Padres' 8-7 split-squad win over Dodgers

Andrew Cashner allowed one run on three hits in 2 1-3 innings in the San Diego Padres' 8-7 split-squad victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday.

Cashner struck out two in his second spring outing, using primarily fastballs that reached 97 mph.

San Diego's Will Venable went 2 for 3 with a home run and three RBIs in his first game since injuring his side last week.

Los Angeles starter Aaron Harang, fighting for a rotation spot, allowed five runs — four earned — and had two walks in four innings.

The Padres scored three runs in the ninth to win the game.
