On a day when the team split up, half of the Los Angeles Dodgers travelled to Maryvale to take on the Milwaukee Brewers. Zach Lee got the start for the Dodgers against Matt Garza.

Both pitchers tossed a scoreless first inning.

The Dodgers got to Garza in the second inning, as center fielder Joc Pederson singled in Scott Van Slyke to continue his torrid start to Spring Training. First baseman Kyle Jensen continued to attack the Brewers’ right-hander by bringing in Pederson on an infield single to bring the score to 2-0. A.J. Ellis broke the game open by hitting a three-run home run in the inning, making it 5-0.

Lee tossed another hitless inning to finish his day. In the top of the third, Pederson stayed hot with a double. Alex Guerrero then got in on the action, launching a home run to left field to put the Dodgers up 7-0.

The 18-year-old prospect, Julio Urias, was stellar in the third inning, striking out two and walking one. Three walks and a Van Slyke single made it 8-0 in the top half of the fourth.

Urias came back out for the fourth and got a pop out. He then walked Aramis Ramirez, but picked off pinch-runner Elian Herrera. The left-hander then walked Khris Davis and reached his pitch limit at just over 40 pitches. Yimi Garcia came into the game and got the third out.
