Spring training 2013 Dodgers: Dodgers return to the official win column

In a game where perhaps the most important numbers were the amount of base runners allowed by Aaron Harang, young outfielders Yasiel Puig and Alex Castellanos provided offense in the 7th

On a cloudy day at Camelback Ranch in front of a crowd over 10,000, the Dodgers and Mariners played to a 3-2 win that featured offense produced by the reserves and good relief pitching after a shaky start by Aaron Harang. This was their first official win since last Sunday as they won their exhibition against Team Mexico on Wednesday and then had two rainouts on Friday in games where they had the lead.

Aaron Harang was in trouble in each inning he pitched, in the second inning with the bases loaded, Franklin Gutierrez singled in two runs. In the bottom of the inning after Ethier doubled, he moved to third on a ground out and then scored on Tony Gwynn Jr.'s ground out.

The score remained the same until the bottom of the 7th when Puig, who had come in for Ethier, hit a slow roller to third that he beat out for an infield hit. after moving to second on a ground out, Puig came home with Alex Castellanos as Castellanos hit his 3rd home run of the spring.

The Dodgers have been pitching League, Jansen and Howell as a group and they held the Mariners scoreless. Kevin Gregg came in pitched a zero run 8th. Paco Rodriguez came in to pitch the 9th and got the save.
