NL West matchup
The rain seems to be staying away for the moment, so the Dodgers will face the Giants for the first of about 20 times over the next six months.
There was a “B” game this morning at Camelback Ranch against the Sox and while I don’t have all the details, I know that as of 10:50 AM, the Dodgers trailed the White Sox 3-0 in the bottom of the fifth, despite having seven hits. Brian Giles was 2-for-2 with a couple of singles and Restovich, DeJesus, Reyes, Ausmus and Lindsey also had base hits.
On the mound, Scott Elbert allowed 3 runs (2 earned) in 2 IP while striking out three, walking one and hitting a batter.
Josh Linblom allowed one hit over two very quick scoreless innings.
Ramon Troncoso was on the mound with 2 on and one out in the fifth.
Over in Scottsdale, first pitch is in a few minutes and here’s the lineup:
