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.
