MESA, Arizona — Ross Ohlendorf struck out five in two perfect innings and prized prospect Joey Gallo homered over the berm in right field, leading a Texas Rangers split squad over the Chicago Cubs 6-4 on Sunday.

Ohlendorf was out of the majors for Washington last season while dealing with a back strain. He provided a nice boost to an ailing pitching staff that might see ace Yu Darvish need Tommy John surgery.

Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland hit a home run in his first at-bat after reconstructive surgery on his left ankle in June.

Cubs starter Jake Arrieta pitched two innings in his spring debut. He walked three, struck out two and gave up hit, the homer by Moreland.
