Dodgers 2, Rangers 1

AT THE PLATE: The Dodgers' runs came on Hanley Ramirez's long first-inning home run to dead center field, his first of the spring. But that was one of just three hits for the Dodgers, who have been held to eight hits over the last two games, scoring all six of their runs over that span on homers.

ON THE MOUND: Zach Lee gave up one hit over two innings in his first outing of the spring. Six relievers followed him, with Brian Wilson and J.P. Howell each contributing hitless innings.

EXTRA BASES: Dee Gordon, locked in a three-way battle for the starting job at second base, played six innings in the field, drew a walk and stole his fifth base of the season. Backup catcher Tim Federowicz threw out Leonys Martin trying to steal in the third inning.

UP NEXT: (Split squad) Rangers at 12:05 p.m. PST at Surprise. On the air: Radio 570; (Split squad) Mariners at 6:05 p.m. PST at Camelback Ranch. On the air: TV: SportsNet LA; Radio: 570.
