Allows two runs in five innings with five strikeouts
By Ken Gurnick / MLB.com
Former Dodger Derek Lowe pitched six innings for Cleveland, allowing two runs (one earned) on seven hits with four strikeouts. Dodgers starter Chris Capuano allowed two runs in five innings with five strikeouts.
Leadoff hitter Dee Gordon got the Dodgers on the board in the first inning. He bunted for a single, stole second -- his eighth stolen base of the spring -- took third on catcher Lou Marson's throwing error and scored on Mark Ellis' groundout.
Cleveland got the run back in the top of the second on singles by Casey Kotchman, former Dodger Andy LaRoche and Aaron Cunningham.
The Dodgers went up 2-1 in the bottom of the second on a Juan Rivera single and James Loney RBI double.
In the sixth, off Dodgers reliever Mike MacDougal, Gregorio Petit walked and was doubled to third by Lopez. Shelley Duncan singled in Petit and Felix Pie's fly scored Lopez.
Up next for Dodgers: Road warrior Clayton Kershaw continues his Spring Training in gray Sunday when he starts for the Dodgers against Milwaukee in Maryvale at 1:05 p.m. PT. If the schedule holds true, all of the Cy Young winner's Spring Training starts will be on the road. Ronald Belisario, Angel Guzman and Wil Ledezma are scheduled to relieve.
