Spring Training Highlights: Home Runs, Diving Catch Vs Giants
The Los Angeles Dodgers split their team on Sunday with one of the groups heading to Scottsdale to take on the San Francisco Giants.
While that squad was unable to get the victory, the offense was able to score nine runs in the loss. Contributing to the offense was prospect and possible Opening Day center fielder Joc Pederson. With the Dodgers down 3-1, Pederson lined a Matt Cain pitch just over the wall in right field:
Back in the first inning, fellow outfielder Yasiel Puig was on the other side of things, preventing runs. Nori Aoki hit a sinking liner to right field and Puig was able to rob him of a hit with a diving catch:
Dodger pitchers were unable to contain the Giant offense and the score was 9-5 in the top of the eighth inning. Utility man Kiké Hernandez stepped to the plate with two runners on and put the Dodgers back within reach with a home run:
The Giants scored two runs in the bottom of the inning and the Dodgers were able to get on in the ninth, but lost 11-9.
