Tepesch roughed up in start vs. Dodgers

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Jimmy Rollins, Adrian Gonzalez and Scott Van Slyke doubled in a five-run third inning as the Dodgers rallied to beat Texas, 10-5, on Sunday at Camelback Ranch.

The runs came against Rangers starting pitcher Nick Tepesch, who is fighting to make the club, and in support of Brandon McCarthy, who overcame a three-run top of the third that included an RBI double from former Dodger Adrian Beltre, who also doubled in the fifth inning.

"He hit a home run off me on a 1-0 curveball on one knee," McCarthy recalled. "He's a nightmare to face and a fun guy to watch."

Beltre's RBI double

Buck Britton, who led off the third-inning rally with a single and came around to score, slugged a two-run homer in the fourth inning and added a double in the seventh.

McCarthy, the third starter with Hyun-Jin Ryu injured, extended to 5 2/3 innings for the first time this spring, charged with three runs on seven hits with two walks and four strikeouts.

Tepesch was charged with seven runs in 3 2/3 innings, striking out three.

"He threw the ball well for three innings, then it got a little loose," Rangers manager Jeff Banister said. "He got the ball up a little and got it flat. But he had three solid innings. The fastball was there and the breaking ball was in play."

Dodgers Up Next: Brett Anderson will start for the Dodgers on Monday against Arizona and former Dodgers farmhand Allen Webster, who was ejected from a game against the Dodgers earlier this spring for hitting a batter with a pitch after umpire warnings were issued. Juan Uribe, scratched from Sunday action because of illness, is expected to be back in the lineup.

Rangers Up Next: Catcher Robinson Chirinos will be back in the lineup Monday when the Rangers play the Royals in Surprise. Chirinos is having a good spring, hitting .304 at the plate and throwing out four of eight attempted basestealers. Lisalverto Bonilla, Jamey Wright, Tanner Scheppers and Neftali Feliz are among those scheduled to pitch.
