Baker goes three innings in rehab start

PHOENIX -- Cubs right-handed pitcher Scott Baker, rehabbing from Tommy John surgery on his right elbow, gave up three runs on five hits over three innings in his third rehab start for Class A Kane County.

Baker started against Beloit on Wednesday, and served up a two-run home run in the first inning.

The right-hander, whom the Cubs hoped could pitch for the big league team this season, now has been charged with 13 runs on 17 hits and six walks over 8 2/3 innings during his rehab.
