Vicente Padilla sharp in spring debut for Dodgers

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Vicente Padilla threw two hitless innings and Reed Johnson drove in a pair of runs, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to an 8-3 win over the Chicago White Sox on Friday.

The Dodgers played most of their projected starters in their spring training opener at Camelback Ranch. Regular left fielder Manny Ramirez was the designated hitter and had a pair of singles in three at-bats.

Los Angeles got its first run off Mark Buehrle, slated to be Chicago's opening-day starter. The left-hander allowed an unearned run and three hits in two innings. A passed ball in the second put Casey Blake at third base before Johnson got his first RBI.
