White Sox Fall To Dodgers In Spring Training Opener

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Chad Billingsley pitched two scoreless innings and the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Chicago White Sox 6-4 Monday.

Billingsley, likely to be the Dodgers’ No. 2 starter behind Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw, gave up only a single to Alexei Ramirez.

Dodgers star Andre Ethier hit a double in his first at-bat of the spring against Philip Humber.

Led by prospect Scott Van Slyke’s two-run homer, the Dodgers scored five times in the sixth off White Sox prospect Nestor Molina, acquired in the offseason trade that sent closer Sergio Santos to Toronto. Van Slyke is the son of former major leaguer Andy Van Slyke.

Ramirez had two hits and drove in a run.
