MESA, Ariz. (AP) -- Justin Ruggiano hit a two-run homer and an RBI double, leading the Chicago Cubs to a 6-4 win Tuesday over an Oakland Athletics split-squad.
 
   Cubs infielder Mike Olt connected for a two-run shot in a three-run eighth that broke a 3-all tie.
 
   Left-hander Tommy Milone, competing for a spot in the A's rotation, gave up three runs and five hits, including Ruggiano's homer, in three innings.
 
   Cubs right-hander Kyle Hendricks gave up one run and one hit, a run-scoring single by Brandon Moss, in two innings. He walked three and struck out two.
 
   Anthony Rizzo doubled and scored on Ruggiano's double in the first, then singled and scored on Ruggiano's homer in the third.
