The Dodgers hit 4 home runs in their 13-7 victory over the White Sox on Saturday at Camelback Ranch. The Dodgers and White Sox share the Camelback Ranch facility and during Saturday’s game, the White Sox were the home team.
Kenta Maeda got the start for the Dodgers, and the White Sox sent Carson Fulmer to the mound. Maeda pitched 4 1/3 innings and was charged with one earned run. Fulmer pitched four innings and was charged with three earned runs.
After the top of the second inning ended, Fulmer began to argue balls and strikes with the home plate umpire Quinn Walcott. It quickly escalated into a yelling match and the White Sox manager Rick Renteria ran from the dugout to protect his pitcher. He was then thrown out of the game, and after saying some more words to Walcott, Renteria headed to the White Sox’s clubhouse.
Fulmer had a rough start, allowing three runs on five hits in four innings of work. He allowed three consecutive singles in the first inning, one being an RBI single by Trayce Thompson, a former White Sox. In the second inning, in his first at-bat since returning from the World Baseball Classic, Rob Segedin hit a solo home run off of Fulmer.
Andre Ethier made his first start since injuring his hip on March 6. He went 2-2 with one RBI. There RBI came in the third inning when he doubled off of Fulmer, scoring Chase Utley. Ethier was just as daring on the bases and was caught taking a large turn off of second.
