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.
