LAS VEGAS (AP) - Chris Rusin threw four scoreless innings, while Donnie Murphy, Daniel Vogelbach, and Arismendy Alcantara each homered to lead the Chicago Cubs to a 6-3 victory over the New York Mets with both teams playing with split squads Sunday.

Rusin (2-2), who started for the fourth time this spring, allowed only a second-inning single while walking none and striking out one.

Chicago jumped out to a 5-0 lead thanks in part to a first-inning throwing error by Mets second baseman Anthony Seratelli in the top of the first, scoring Ryan Kalish and Murphy, who later homered in the third. Ryan Sweeney had an RBI single to center, scoring Kalish in the fourth.

Andrew Brown hit a two-run homer for the Mets in the sixth inning, cutting the Cubs' lead to 5-3. Zach Lutz homered an inning earlier.

Mets starter Jenrry Mejia (0-1) took the loss, allowing three runs.
