Dodgers pitchers like what they get from Ellis

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Matt Kemp hit his first homer of the spring in the Los Angeles Dodgers' 3-2 loss to the San Francisco Giants on Monday.

Chad Billingsley and Clayton Kershaw each pitched two solid innings for Los Angeles in their exhibition debuts.

San Francisco's Ryan Rohlinger singled in the winning run with two out in the 10th.

Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis worked six innings in his first start since Russell Martin was sidelined by a pulled groin that likely will keep him out through opening day.

Giants starter Barry Zito had better control in his second spring outing, allowing three hits in three innings — including Kemp's first-inning solo shot.

Los Angeles slugger Manny Ramirez was 0 for 2 and got hit by a pitch.
