Dodgers on the mound:
Only one of the runs against Kershaw in the first inning was earned, and the young left-hander buckled down the rest of the way. In five innings he allowed only two hits, and he worked around three walks and two wild pitches with six strikeouts.
Brewers on the mound:
The Brewers' No. 3 starter and All-Star closer both had forgettable afternoons against the Dodgers. Doug Davis started and couldn't get through his allotted five innings, allowing three runs and six hits with three walks and three strikeouts in 4 2/3 innings of work. Closer Trevor Hoffman took the seventh inning and labored a bit, allowing two runs on four hits and a wild pitch. The inning began with a Rafael Furcal grounder that ticked off first baseman Joe Koshansky's glove and was ruled a single.
Davis was not on the same page with catcher Jonathan Lucroy early in the game, and perhaps that was due to some morning scrambling. Matt Treanor was supposed to catch Davis, but he was traded to Texas just before lunch and Lucroy was called into duty.
2010 Spring Training - null
Sights & Sounds
Spring Training Info
Cactus League records: Dodgers 7-10-1; Brewers 11-9-1.
The Dodgers have an off-day scheduled for Tuesday, but not everybody will be off. Chad Billingsley, to keep the rotation in order, will pitch about five innings in a Minor League game. The Dodgers won't play again until Wednesday night, when they travel to play Oakland. Hiroki Kuroda will try to bounce back from a rough outing San Diego, but the more intriguing appearance will be 22-year-old Josh Lindblom, for the second spring making a strong bid for a job. Lindblom only pitched two innings last time, so if he makes the club, it appears it would be as a reliever.
Most of the Brewers' regulars will be in action on Tuesday for the team's final game before its lone Spring Training day off. That means Prince Fielder, Corey Hart, Gregg Zaun and Casey McGehee will all hit the road to Goodyear, Ariz., to face left-hander Jeremy Sowers and the Indians. Dave Bush will start for Milwaukee and will finally have the attention of the full coaching staff. Bush and left-hander Manny Parra have shared a day all spring as both vie for one of the openings in Milwaukee's starting rotation. Tuesday's game will air on the Brewers Radio network with Bob Uecker and Corey Provus on the call.
