PEORIA, ARIZ. (AP) - Except for the bag of ice taped to his shoulder, Aaron Miles gave little indication that he’s recovering from a shoulder injury that sidelined him for nearly a week.

Miles went 3-for-4 with two doubles and two runs scored in the Chicago Cubs’ 9-2 win over a Seattle Mariners split squad Thursday.

Miles was sidelined for six days with a bruised right shoulder after he fell while running to first base against Seattle on March 10. Since returning to Chicago’s lineup two days ago, Miles has five hits, scored three runs and raised his average from .267 to .344.

Micah Hoffpauir and Jake Fox hit back-to-back home runs in the third for Chicago.
