Cubs 4, Dodgers 3: Justin Turner stays hot

Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner is hitting .308 in spring training

AT THE PLATE: Justin Turner, who batted .340 in his first season with the Dodgers last year, was two for four with a two-run double in the fourth inning. The utility man is batting .308 this spring. "Everything's on the nose," Manager Don Mattingly said. Joc Pederson drove in his second run of the spring when he grounded out in the fourth inning to score Scott Van Slyke from third base. Howie Kendrick was two for three with a run. Yasiel Puig had an infield hit and a run.

ON THE MOUND: Non-roster left-hander David Huff didn't give up any runs in 1 2/3 innings and didn't allow either of the runners he inherited from 18-year-old Julio Urias in the third inning to score either. "He's been interesting," Mattingly said. "He has a clean delivery, he kind of handles everything well, he's got weapons for both sides. He's a guy who can get a lefty out, he's a guy who can go multiple [innings]." Former first-round draft pick Zach Lee pitched two scoreless innings. Two other former first-rounders, left-hander Chris Reed and right-hander Chris Anderson, each pitched an inning. Reed didn't give up a run; Anderson gave up one.

EXTRA BASES: Actor Will Ferrell is scheduled to pitch for the Dodgers against San Diego as part of a television special that will air on HBO this year. Ferrell will play for 10 teams Wednesday, which will require him to travel by helicopter to five games. Game-used memorabilia will be auctioned at mlb.com, with proceeds donated to Cancer for College and Stand Up to Cancer.

UP NEXT: at San Diego Padres, 6 p.m. in Peoria. On the air: TV: SportsNetLA.
