SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Clayton Kershaw threw five scoreless innings, Scott Van Slyke hit his third home run of the spring and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Colorado Rockies 6-4 on Sunday.

Kershaw gave up two hits, both in the first inning, striking out three and walking one. The Dodgers ace left-hander, winner of the NL Cy Young award three of the last five seasons, has allowed one run in 10 innings this spring.

Van Slyke led off the second with a home run of Jordan Lyles onto the grassy slope beyond the left field fence. Cody Bellinger doubled twice for the Dodgers and drove in two runs.
