Dodgers Lose to White Sox

White SoxGLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Los Angeles ace Clayton Kershaw struggled in his final start before opening the regular season in Australia, allowing five runs on eight hits in 5 2/3 innings in the Dodgers’ 5-4 loss to the Chicago White Sox on Saturday night.

Kershaw struck out five and walked one.

Chicago leadoff hitter Adam Eaton hit a line drive at center fielder Joc Pederson, who misplayed it, allowing Eaton to circle the bases for an inside-the-park home run.

White Sox right fielder Avisail Garcia hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the sixth inning off the first pitch he saw from Kershaw and finished 2 for 3 with four RBIs.
