Dodgers Spring Training Highlights: Freddie Freeman & Chris Taylor Shine Against White Sox

The Los Angeles Dodgers came from behind twice to earn a 6-4 win over the Chicago White Sox in a game where Freddie Freeman and Chris Taylor had significant contributions at the plate.

Freeman reached safely in all three of his plate appearances, going 2-for-2 with a walk in his return to the Dodgers lineup. After a single off Michael Kopech in the first inning, Freeman came around to score the first run on an RBI hit by Taylor.

With the Dodgers trailing 2-1 in the fifth inning, Freeman helped spark another rally with his second base hit of the game after Jason Heyward drew a walk. Both runners advanced on a wild pitch before Heyward scored the tying run after Nick Avila balked.

The Dodgers erased another deficit in the sixth inning when Drew Avans dropped down an RBI bunt single that brought the team within one run. L.A. then tied the game on Ryan Ward’s groundout.

Taylor gave the Dodgers a decided lead when he hit a two-run homer off A.J. Alexy in the seventh. The blast was his first extra-base hit of Spring Training.

Yency Almonte, Brusdar Graterol, Shelby Miller and Victor Gonz√°lez helped close out the win by each throwing a scoreless inning against the White Sox.
