Indians Offense Pounds Out 14 Hits, Top Dodgers 8-4 in Spring Action in Goodyear

The Indians won their fourth game of the spring on Friday night, as they topped the Los Angeles Dodgers in Goodyear by a final of 8-4.

The Tribe pounded out 14 hits in the win, and got a pair of solo homers in the victory (Yu Chang and Brandon Barnes).

The offense was paced by leadoff man Leonys Martin, who went 3-for-3 and is now this spring hitting an impressive .545 (6-for-11).

Los Angeles got off to a 2-0 lead, but a couple two-run singles in the third inning put the Indians ahead for good, those coming from catcher Roberto Perez and first basemen Carlos Santana.

The Indians added a single run in the fourth, and single runs each in the 6th, 7th and 8th to take home the win.

Eight Indians pitchers toed the rubber Friday night, with starter A.J. Cole getting the start and going two innings, allowing two runs on three hits with three strikeouts.

Brad Hand, Dan Otero, Adam Cimber, Ben Taylor and Hector Hernandez all pitched scoreless innings for the Indians following Cole’s exit.

The Tribe will be in action on Saturday in Mesa, Arizona as they will take on the Oakland A’s at 3pm. Trevor Bauer will go for the Indians against Paul Blackburn for the A’s.
