|Kemp Homers, Drives in Four, Dodgers Top White Sox
|TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Matt Kemp homered among his three hits and had four RBIs and Dee Gordon also had three hits as the Los Angeles Dodgers routed the Chicago White Sox 17-4 Friday in a game between split squads.
The game was played in Tucson to raise money for the fund set up to honor Christina-Taylor Green, the daughter of Dodgers scout John Green. Christina was one of the victims of the shooting Jan. 8, 2011, in which former Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was wounded.
Gordon led off the game with a triple. Mark Ellis and Kemp followed with run-scoring doubles. Kemp hit a long solo homer to left in the third inning and drove in two more runs with a single in the fifth.
Nathan Eovaldi, who was 1-2 with a 3.63 ERA in six starts last season, pitched three scoreless innings for the Dodgers. He gave up three hits, striking out two.
White Sox starter Dylan Axelrod gave up four runs and 10 hits in four innings.
