Dodgers dump Mets 11-5

Adrian Beltré was 3-for-3 with a homer and Paul Lo Duca added a homer as the Dodgers won their final home game in Florida 11-5 over the New York Mets. Hideo Nomo (1-4) worked five shutout innings, fanning six, before tiring to earn his first win of the spring.

The first five Dodgers reached base in a five-run first inning, added a run in the third, two each in the fifth and sixth and a single run in the seventh and eighth to boost their record to 12-18.

Nomo worked five zeros in succession before running out of gas and allowing the first four Mets in the sixth to reach base. A two-run homer cost him a pair of runs and a two-run homer off Darren Dreifort cut the Dodger lead to 7-5.

Steve Colyer, tom Martin, Rick White and Eric Gagné were unscored upon.

Jason Romano and Alex Cora had a pair of hits among the 14 collected by Los Angeles. In their Dodger debut Jason Werth scored a run and Jason Grabowski was 1-for-1 with an RBI.

The Dodgers finished 7-8 in Holman Stadium. It was also the third night game at home.

The Dodgers finished their training in Florida, losing a 9-0 a game to Montreal on April 1, then flew home to Los Angeles for a three-game series against the Anaheim Angels.
