SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Matt Kemp had his first two hits of the spring and Clayton Kershaw allowed only two hits in five innings and added an RBI single and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Colorado Rockies 6-1 Sunday.
Kemp, who was 0 for 11 with five strikeouts in his first four Cactus League games, singled in the first inning, walked in the fourth and added an RBI single to score Dee Gordon during a six-run fifth inning.
Juan Uribe followed Kemp with a three-run homer to cap the inning.
Kershaw (2-2), who had allowed eight earned runs in eight innings in three starts, allowed a leadoff single to Dexter Fowler and a single to Henry Wrigley in the second.
Fowler scored on Elian Herrera's fielding error in the first. The Rockies had just five hits, all singles.
Colorado starter Jeff Francis (1-1) blanked the Dodgers through four to extend his spring scoreless streak to 13 innings. But he ran into trouble in the fifth, allowing singles to Alex Castellanos and Alfredo Amezaga before Kershaw and Skip Schumaker followed with RBI singles.
