Indian Score Late to Pop Dodgers 6-3
Haeger, who threw 100 pitches, finished his spring slate 3-0 in six appearances, including two starts. He will make his first start Saturday or Sunday at Florida.
"I've been waiting for an opportunity like this for a long time, and it's finally here," he said. Haeger made three starts for the Dodgers last season and one for the Cubs in 2006.
Ramon Ortiz continued his remarkable pitching, working a scoreless inning and dropped his earned average to 1.02. Ramon Troncoso was tagged with three unearned runs after a errant throw on a potential double play by Blake DeWitt and Jonathan Broxton added a zero in the ninth.
The readjustment of George Sherrill's mechanics is still a work in progress. He was tacked with two runs in the seventh and left without getting the third out in the inning. His ERA is a horrendous 7.50, but that seems to be his spring modus operandi (method of operating).
Manny Ramirez singled and James Loney doubled in the second inning. ground balls by Casey Blake and Garrett Anderson put L.A.up 2-0 and after Sizemore's home run, Rafael Furcal knocked in Blake DeWitt for a brief 3-1 Dodgers lead.
DeWitt was told before the game by manager Joe Torre that he was to be sent to Albuquerque, and in the midst of his dispare was then reminded by GM Ned Colletti that it was April 1st.
The Angels host the Dodgers in the first of two final spring games tonight, with the second at Dodger Stadium on Saturday. Left-hander Clayton Kershaw will make his final Spring Training start and will work the second game of the regular season on Tuesday.
