Friday found us at Camelback Ranch where the Dodgers hosted the White Sox, and the two teams pretty much looked season ready. The game was locked at 0-0 until the seventh inning when Joc Pederson (who registered at #12 on the Mastersball Top 250 Prospect List) hooked a liner just inside the foul pole for a two-run homer. That was all the Dodgers would need.
There's one big problem for Pederson, however. Like Scott Van Slyke and Clint Robinson, who also belted a dinger, he has Matt Kemp, Carl Crawford, Yasiel Puig and Andre Ethier (who did start the game) in front of him.
Dodgers starter Hyun-jin Ryu matched Sale, as did the following littany of hurlers including Brian Wilson, Kenley Jansen, Donnie Veal and the guy I really wonder how he managed this long in the Majors, Jamie Wright (who wound up the winner of the game).
