The Dodgers offense was out in a tear for the second consecutive day, piling on 11 runs and 14 hits against the Chicago Cubs, in an 11-7 victory, increasing the team’s spring record to 2-1-2.
Starter Aaron Harang was chased around early, allowing four runs on five hits in 2.0 innings pitched. He would walk one batter and strike out another.
Fortunately for him though, there was no shortage of offense on the Dodgers’ end.
Second baseman Alfredo Amezaga contributed with a 3-for-3 afternoon, which included a run scored and two RBIs.
Also contributing to the fun was left fielder Elian Herrera, who was also perfect with a 3-for-3 afternoon, scoring two runs and driving in another.
In the seventh inning, outfielder Alex Castellanos connected on a Hisanori Takahashi pitch for his second home run, a day after hitting his first of the spring.
Also pitching in yesterday’s contest were:
- Mark Lowe: (1.0 IP, 1 R, 3 H, 1 K)
- Ronald Belisario: (1.0 IP. 2 R (0 ER), 0 H, 2 BB, 1 K)
- Matt Magill: (2.0 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 BB, 5 K)
