 MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Announced as Oakland's opening-day starter before the game, Brett Anderson allowed one hit in two scoreless innings Thursday in the Athletics' 5-3 loss to the Chicago Cubs.
The 25-year-old left-hander, 4-2 with a 2.57 ERA in six starts last year after he recovered from elbow surgery, struck out one and walked none in his first outing of spring training. He'll be opposed by Seattle's Felix Hernandez in the April 1 matchup at Oakland.
In his first appearance for the Cubs after leaving Texas as a free agent, Scott Feldman gave up one run and two hits in two innings with two strikeouts and two walks.
Derek Norris hit a fourth-inning home run off Travis Wood, his second home run of spring training. Michael Choice had had two hits, including a second-inning triple that followed a walk to Norris.
