Kershaw shuts down Rockies, Van Slyke homers in Dodgers win
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.
