Kershaw shaky at start, White Sox beat Dodgers
CHI WHITE SOX 9, LA DODGERS 0

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Clayton Kershaw is trying to get ready
for his third straight Opening Day start.



The left-hander gave up four hits in two innings and was charged
with an error, allowing Chicago to grab a 2-0 lead. The White
Sox went on to win 9-0.



"I feel good," said Kershaw, who was selected to make his third
straight Opening Day start on April 1 against World Series
champion San Francisco at Dodgers Stadium. "I feel strong.
That's the important thing right now.



In the first, Chicago's Alejandro De Aza singled and took third
off an errant throw from Kershaw in a pickoff attempt at second.
De Aza scored off an Alex Rios' single. In the second, Kershaw
gave up two hits and a run. Chicago's Alexei Ramirez singled and
scored off a Gordon Beckham double.



"For the first day, things went all right. Obviously, you don't
want to give up runs. But better now than April."



Unlike the Dodgers' ace, White Sox pitcher Dylan Axelrod was
just trying to prove that he belongs on Chicago's major-league
roster.



Axelrod began to prove himself with three innings of one-hit
ball in a 9-0 victory over the Dodgers. The White Sox made it
look easy. Axelrod and five relievers limited the Dodgers to
three hits. The White Sox got 14 hits off seven Dodger pitchers.



"My job is to be there if I'm needed, no matter what happens in
spring or the regular season," said Axelrod, who last season was
1-2 in seven starts and 1-0 in seven relief appearance for the
White Sox. "I'm trying to make a point that I can pitch at that
level."



Chicago scored two in the third, one in the fourth, two in the
seventh and two in the ninth. White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers
led the hit parade with home run in the fourth off.



"It was an OK at-bat," said Flowers, who wasn't happy with
several pitches he took before sending a 2-3 pitch over the
left-field fence. "I didn't really see it well except for a
couple of pitches. The result is good, but there is definitely
more work to be done."



The Dodgers' three hits came from Juan Uribe with a single,
Andre Ethier with a triple and Yasiel Puig with a double. Puig
sent a shot to left field in the ninth and rounded first base to
second with the power of an NFL linebacker. Then, was nearly
thrown out at third



"You wouldn't want to get run over by him," Dodgers manager Don
Mattingly said of the outfielder, a Cuban defector who in the
off-season signed a seven-year deal for $42 million. "But you
want to see that kind of aggressiveness, especially in young
guys."
