Chin-Hui Tsao entered in the fifth and retired the Angels in just 10 pitches. He suffered his first hiccup so far this Spring in the sixth however, when the Angels were able to get to him for two runs on a walk and two hits. The Dodgers still led 6-5 midway through six.

Dodgers outfielder Kyle Jensen led off the bottom of the sixth with a walk, but was quickly erased on a Guerrero 6-4-3 double play ball ending any possible Dodger threat.

Chris Hatcher came in throwing strikes in the top of the seventh, getting two strikeouts and a fly out to set the Angels down in order. After a one-out double by Matt Carson in the bottom half of the inning, Lars Anderson hit a bloop single to put runners at the corners for minor-leaguer Ali Solis. The catcher hit a sacrifice fly to center to give the Dodgers a 7-5 lead.

Minor-League pitcher Jharel Cotton threw the eighth for the Dodgers and kept the two-run lead intact, retiring the Angels in order. The offense managed just a single in the bottom of the eighth.

Cotton returned to the mound to close things out and promptly gave up a leadoff double. He was able to get an out, but after a single put runners on the corners, he was pulled for left-hander Michael Johnson. The Angels were able to tie the game after a sacrifice fly and RBI double made it 7-7.

The offense was unable to break the tie and the Dodgers finished with their sixth tie of the spring.
