Dodgers Score: LA Walks Away With A Win Over Royals in Spring Training

It’s week two of Spring Training and in Saturday’s game against the Kansas City Royals, the Dodgers pulled out a 7-6 win.

The Royals scored early taking the 1-0 lead after the first inning but the Dodgers tied it up in the second. Tied 1-1 in the top of the fourth, James Outman stepped up to the plate. And it was like deja vu from last summer:

After Saturday’s evening game, his stat line sits real pretty: .455/ .533/ .727 with 3 runs and 3 RBI in 11 at-bats across Spring Training.

“Everytime we see James Outman he becomes more and more interesting.”

Then, the very next inning, J Hey hit for his second homer of Spring Training thus far, tying Freddie Freeman.

The Dodgers then took a 3-1 lead and even though the Royals knocked in two runs of their own to tie it up in the seventh, Trayce Thompson took care of business in helping Andy Pages score.

But that wouldn’t round out the scoring for the Dodgers just yet. David Freitas had stolen second and with a throwing error by the Royals catcher, Trayce Thompson scored to put the Dodgers up 5-3.

Then the potential new Dodgers shortstop, Eddys Leonard, hit a double scoring Freitas and Diego Cartaya in the top of the seventh. That would end the Dodgers scoring for the remainder of the game.

The Royals were able to put together three more runs across the next two innings but it wasn’t enough to get past LA. The Dodgers would close out their night game at Suprise Stadium with a 7-6 win.

Both Jason Heyward and James Outman went 2-for-3 on the day and Landon Knack was awarded the win. Between eight Dodgers pitchers, the staff put together 15 strikeouts, four of which came from Ryan Pepiot in his first two innings of the game.

The Dodgers will return to Camelback Ranch tomorrow where they will face the White Sox at 12:05 p.m. (PCT). Julio Urias (0-1, 3.38 ERA, 4 SO) will take the mound for the Dodgers and will face Giolito.
