Spring training: Texas 4, Dodgers 0


Texas 4, Dodgers 0

AT THE PLATE: Outfield prospect Yasiel Puig was one for three, beating out a seventh-inning grounder to shortstop for a single. Later that inning, he was caught stealing. “He did get 50% of our hits today,” Manager Don Mattingly said. The other hit came from non-roster utilityman Alfredo Amezaga, who led off the game with a single to right. Amezaga was also caught stealing.

ON THE MOUND: Left-hander J.P. Howell inherited a one-out, bases-loaded situation from Brandon League and limited the damage to one run. Javy Guerra returned from a mild groin injury to face two batters, striking out both.

EXTRA BASES: The Dodgers will play a split-squad doubleheader Sunday. South Korean rookie Hyun-Jin Ryu will pitch in the game at home against the Milwaukee Brewers and Ted Lilly will start in Scottsdale against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

UP NEXT: vs. Milwaukee on Sunday at 1 PDT at Camelback Ranch in Phoenix; vs. Arizona on Sunday at 1 PDT at Salt River Fields in Scottsdale. On the air: TV: Ch. 9 (vs. Brewers). Radio: 570 (vs. Brewers).
