DODGERS 6, INDIANS 4
at Goodyear, Ariz.
Saturday, March 21

Dodgers at the plate: The Dodgers were quiet until Doug Mientkiewicz got them on the board with an RBI double in the seventh. In the eighth, Russell Martin took Jeremy Sowers deep with a titantic, two-run shot to left. It was his third homer of the spring. Mientkiewicz struck again in the eighth with an RBI triple.

Indians at the plate: It was another nice day for Matt LaPorta, who had the game-winning hit against the A's on Friday. In this one, LaPorta, the prized acquisition in last year's CC Sabathia trade, contributed RBI doubles in the seventh and eighth innings. Jamey Carroll knocked LaPorta home with a single in the seventh.

Dodgers on the mound: The Dodgers had Hiroki Kuroda pitch in a Minor League game to free up some innings for right-hander James McDonald, who is competing for the open spot in the rotation. McDonald looked good in three scoreless innings, allowing just one walk with no hits. Shawn Estes was less successful in his latest rotation bid, giving up two runs on three hits with three strikeouts in 2 2/3 innings.

Indians on the mound: No. 4 starter Anthony Reyes continues to look healthy and effective this spring. He limited the Dodgers to just two hits with no walks and two strikeouts in five scoreless innings. Sowers, still battling for the fifth rotation spot, looked good in the sixth but fell apart in the seventh and eighth.

Cactus League records: Dodgers 11-11; Indians 8-13-1.

Up next: On Sunday, the Indians will make their first trip to Tucson's Hi Corbett Field since it was their Spring Training home in 1992. Reigning Cy Young winner Cliff Lee, who has thrown virtually all fastballs over the course of putting up an 18.90 ERA this spring, said he'll use the start against the Rockies as his first opportunity to pitch like he would in the regular season.

The Dodgers will be back at home Sunday to play host to the Rangers. Left-hander Randy Wolf, who will serve as the club's No. 2 starter this season after signing a one-year free agent contract, will get the starting nod, and right-handers Guillermo Mota and Cory Wade are also scheduled to pitch.
