GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Josh Beckett and Paul Maholm, the fifth and sixth starters, tossed a pair of scoreless innings each as the Dodgers and a Padres split squad played to a 3-3 tie Sunday at Camelback Ranch.
Beckett, continuing his recovery from surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, struck out three and allowed one hit, calling the outing a significant hurdle in his return from the injury.
Maholm, who was slowed this spring with elbow tenderness, also allowed only one hit.
Up next: Clayton Kershaw, hit hard in his debut start last week, gets the ball again on Monday at 12:05 p.m. PT against the A's on MLB.TV. He is scheduled to throw three innings. Also likely to pitch for the Dodgers are Rule 5 acquisition Seth Rosin. On Tuesday, with the injured Zack Greinke out, the Dodgers will use relievers and give the start to Brian Wilson.
