Mesa, AZ (Sports Network) - Pinch-runner Shawon Dunston scored the deciding run on an Ernesto Frieri wild pitch in the bottom of the eighth inning, giving the Chicago Cubs a 7-6 come-from-behind win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in spring training play.

The Cubs took a 6-5 lead by tallying four times in the seventh, with Alex Gonzalez delivering a two-run double and Scott Hairston belting a go-ahead solo homer shortly afterward, but the Angels pulled even with a run in the top of the eighth.
