Los Angeles starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw got into a jam during his first spring training work, but feels he might be better for it in the long run.
1 of the Dodgers' top-rated prospects had a perfect first inning before allowing two runs in the second during a Los Angeles 13-5 victory over Colorado today in Tucson.
Kershaw allowed a single to Matt Murton to open the second before Yorvit Torrealba reached on a fielder's choice. The Dodgers' projected No. 4 starter then struck out Daniel Ortmeier and Carlos Gonzalez before allowing a two-run single to Christian Colonel. He ended up striking out the side.
Kershaw finished allowing two runs on two hits, while striking out three in his two frames.
Colorado starting pitcher Jason Marquis, traded on Jan. 6 from the Chicago Cubs for Luis Vizcaino, made his debut with the Rockies. Marquis allowed one unearned run and no hits in two innings against Los Angeles.
