Yasiel Puig, Kenta Maeda start fast in Dodgers' 7-2 win over Arizona

Highlights from the Dodgers' 7-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday:

AT THE PLATE: Yasiel Puig drove in his second run of the spring with a sacrifice fly in the first inning. He drove in Howie Kendrick, who led off the game with a single and advanced to third base on Andre Ethier's single. Outfielder Corey Brown had a run-scoring single in the second inning. The Dodgers pulled away in the sixth, when Alex Hassan hit a run-scoring double, Rob Segedin hit a two-run home run and Charlie Culberson hit a run-scoring double. Segedin hit a home run in the eighth. "Every time he gets in the box, he's a threat," Manager Dave Roberts said. "Just finds the way to put the barrel to it."

ON THE MOUND: After Kenta Maeda threw two scoreless innings, Chris Hatcher gave up two runs in the third inning. Jose De Leon, one of the team's best pitching prospects, struck out four in two innings of late-game duty. "Throwing strikes, keeping the ball down, mixing his off-speed in there," Roberts said. "Just his composure out there was good to see."

EXTRA BASES: Adrian Gonzalez made his Cactus League debut after two days off to rest his neck (bulging disk). He walked in his first at-bat and grounded out in his second. He departed after three innings. ... Alex Guerrero was scratched because of soreness in his left knee. He was injured on a slide Friday. Roberts said the ailment was not considered significant.
