Chris Taylor home run lifts Dodgers to win over White Sox

THE GAME: Chris Taylor’s two-run home run in the seventh inning broke a tie and sent the Dodgers to a 6-4 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday afternoon at Camelback Ranch.

But he re-entered the game in the second inning and pitched three more innings, allowing just one more hit. … Yency Almonte, Brusdar Graterol and Victor Gonzalez each pitched a scoreless inning in relief.

HITTING REPORT: Freddie Freeman returned to the Dodgers’ lineup as the DH and reached base in all three plate appearances – two singles and a walk.

Taylor began the spring 2 for 6 but was 2 for 29 before his home run. … Catcher David Freitas had a single and a double in two at-bats.
