first_imgTHE GAME: Kike’ Hernandez drove in five runs and the Dodgers beat the Colorado Rockies 11-6 on Wednesday night at Camelback Ranch.PITCHING REPORT: RHP Ross Stripling made what is likely to be his last start of the spring (he will roll back into more of a reliever’s schedule). He gave up back-to-back doubles to Raimel Tapia and Gerardo Parra to start the game then allowed just two more hits and struck out four in his three innings. … LHP Scott Alexander struggled through a one-run inning that included two singles, two walks and two wild pitches. … RHP Pedro Baez also had a rough inning, allowing a run on three hits.HITTING REPORT: Dodgers manager Dave Roberts called Hernandez “a lefty killer” earlier this week (the stats back him up) but said he thinks Hernandez has made changes in his swing and approach that will lead to more success (and playing time) against right-handed pitchers this season. Hernandez backed him up by hitting a three-run home run and a two-run double, both off Rockies right-hander Jon Gray. … Yasiel Puig had an RBI double and Jake Peter a two-run single during the Dodgers’ four-run seventh inning that broke a 5-5 tie. … Kyle Farmer hit a two-run home run. He is 10 for 20 this spring with six extra-base hits (three doubles, three home runs)DEFENSE REPORT: Austin Barnes started at catcher and was charged with two errors on wild throws to second base on steal attempts. … Third baseman Justin Turner was also charged with his first error of the spring.
