After spending the last two days playing split-squad games, the Los Angeles Dodgers were back at full strength Sunday when they faced the Cleveland Indians back at Camelback Ranch.

Left-hander David Huff made his second start of the spring as he looked to build on his strong performances. It was an easy first inning for Huff after retiring the Indians in order with a fly out and a pair of grounders.

The bottom half saw the Dodgers go up against 2014 AL Cy Young winner Corey Kluber and Kiké Hernandez opened things up with a lead off home run for the second-straight game.

The second inning was another perfect one for Huff and the Dodgers maintained a 1-0 lead. With one out in the bottom half, Alex Guerrero reached on a grounder and proceeded to steal second base with Corey Seager at the plate. Seager drew a walk, but Scott Schebler hit into a double play to end the inning.

Huff’s perfect outing came to end on a Tyler Holt bunt in which he beat Guerrero’s throw to first base. Seager threw wide of first base on a potential double play, which kept the inning alive for the Indians. However, Huff got Michael Bourn to fly out to left and the Indians were kept scoreless.

Hernandez was robbed of a base hit by a diving Lonnie Chisenhall, and the Dodgers were retired in order in the third. After an impressive three scoreless innings, Huff’s day came to an end as Joel Peralta took over to begin the fourth.
