Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Kenta Maeda and Jose De Leon each made good impressions on their first trip to the mound at Camelback Ranch. The Dodgers also had a successful day as they came away with the 7-2 victory.

Maeda tossed a pair of scoreless innings, allowing only a double -- later erased on a caught stealing -- while striking out two.

De Leon allowed a double to the first batter he faced but quickly recovered by striking out the side in the sixth. The young right-hander struck out four in two innings while walking none.
