    Yoshinobu Yamamoto, Dodgers lose to Mariners in Cactus League finale
    • March 14, 2024

    THE GAME: Five of the Dodgers’ eight hits went for extra bases but it didn’t translate to much on the scoreboard and Yoshinobu Yamamoto made his final spring training start in an 8-1 Cactus League loss to the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday afternoon at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Ariz.

    HITTING REPORT: James Outman went 2 for 2 with a double and scored the Dodgers’ only run in the fourth inning when he singled and then came home on Austin Barnes’ two-out double to left, which Mariners left fielder Taylor Trammell appeared to lose in the sun. … Mookie Betts (1 for 3) and Chris Taylor (1 for 3) also had doubles and Jason Heyward (1 for 3) had a triple. … Betts was picked off second base after doubling in the third, then reached on a fielder’s choice in the fifth but was thrown out trying to steal second base. … Shohei Ohtani was 0 for 3 with two strikeouts but still hit .500 in Cactus League play. … The Dodgers went 0 for 7 with runners in scoring position.

    PITCHING REPORT: Yamamoto looked like a $325 million pitcher when he struck out J.P. Crawford, Julio Rodríguez and Jorge Polanco in the first inning, but he allowed four runs on eight hits in 4⅔ innings in his final tuneup before he starts the second game of the season against the San Diego Padres in Seoul. Yamamoto struck out seven with one walk in his 73 pitches. All eight of the hits he allowed came after the first time through the Seattle lineup. … Left-hander Alex Vesia allowed a pair of singles but struck out the side in a scoreless eighth inning. … Right-hander J.P. Feyereisen pitched a scoreless ninth, while right-hander Dilson Lamet, left-hander T.J. McFarland and right-hander Nabil Crismatt also made appearances.

    DEFENSE REPORT: McFarland had a throwing error on a comebacker from Tai Peete in the seventh inning that gave the Mariners runners at first and second. The next batter, prospect Lazaro Montes, delivered a two-run triple into the right field corner.

    UP NEXT: The Dodgers head to South Korea, where they will play a pair of exhibition games against Korean teams before their two-game regular-season series against the San Diego Padres in Seoul next week.
