TEMPE, ARIZ. (AP) - Kendry Morales hit a grand slam for his first homer of spring training and the Los Angeles Angels beat a Chicago Cubs split squad 8-2 Friday.

The 24-year old Morales upped his spring average to .355 with two hits in three at-bats. He is expected to start the season as the Angels’ first baseman even though he batted only 61 times with three homers in 2008.

His slam came in the third inning off Cubs starter Chad Gaudin.

Gaudin worked 1 2-3 innings and allowed six earned runs in his third start.
