Dodgers 9, Red Sox 6

The boys exploded for seven runs in the ninth, all of them scoring on a three-run, pinch-hit homer by Lucas May to tie the game and a grand slam by Jason Repko to break it open, Repko is now 4 for 11 for the spring. Red Sox left the bases loaded in the ninth, which ended on a sliding catch in LF by George Lombard. Derek Lowe started and struggled, giving up five runs on six hits in two-plus innings. Torre later said Lowe wasn’t locating well and speculated it might have something to do with emotion Lowe felt by pitching against the Red Sox and in front of Red Sox fans. Eric Stults, who is likely to start the season at Triple-A Las Vegas but might be the first in line if the Dodgers need a starting pitcher, pitched two perfect innings, striking out one. Ramon Martinez was on base five times, walking twice, singling twice and reaching on an error. Dodgers win this game for the fourth year in a row and go to 3-5-1 for the spring.
