Dodgers fall to Kansas City Royals, 11-5
With Ted Lilly scratched from his scheduled start due to flu-like symptoms, Redding became the first Dodger pitcher to make two starts this exhibition season. Holding the Royals to four hits and a walk, Redding extended his scoreless streak this spring to five innings.
In camp with Colorado last season, Redding went from playing in the Rockies’ minor-league system to the Yankees’. He was released by the Yankees in August and landed a job in South Korea.
Former No. 1 pick Scott Elbert’s control problems continued, as the left-hander walked four batters and recorded only one out. Of the 10 batters he has faced this spring, he has walked six.
