Recap: Chicago Cubs vs. Texas

Las Vegas, NV (Sports Network) - Derek Holland allowed one hit over four shutout innings and he was supported by Julio Borbon's two-run single in Texas' 12-7 spring training win over the Chicago Cubs.

Borbon's hit off James Russell in the fifth inning opened a 3-0 lead before the Cubs got on the board on Alfonso Soriano's RBI single in the sixth.
