SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Rubby De La Rosa looks ready for the big leagues.
The Dodgers' minor league player of the year last season, De La Rosa threw four hitless innings Friday in his second spring start to help Los Angeles beat the San Francisco Giants 6-3.
De La Rosa walked three and struck out two. Since allowing two runs in his first spring outing, he has given up only two hits in eight scoreless innings.
"It's fun to watch," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said.
While De La Rosa has a promising future, Giants starter Jeff Suppan is trying to extend his major league career by winning a job in the bullpen.
Suppan, competing for the long relief role, allowed two runs and seven hits over four innings with two strikeouts. The 36-year-old right-hander has allowed 10 runs over his past eight innings covering three appearances.
"Sometimes you make your pitch and it gets hit. That's baseball," Suppan said. "I feel like if I'm locating that's all I can control."
Aaron Rowand went 1-for-4 with a run for the Giants, who lost for the first time in four games against the rival Dodgers this spring.
Before the game, Mattingly said 3B Casey Blake likely will begin the year on the disabled list after hurting his back Saturday. ... The game was played in front of a Scottsdale Stadium-record crowd of 12,188. ... Giants RHP Matt Cain threw 63 pitches in a four-inning start in a minor league game at nearby Indian Bend Park. Cain developed elbow inflammation after his first start of the spring and returned to the mound Monday against Milwaukee. "There was just a little achiness going on, we tried to take care of it and it's worked out fine," Cain said. ... Paul is 7-for-12 with a double, triple, home run and two RBIs over his past six games. ... Mattingly said DeJesus could be in the mix for a reserve infield spot but only if he's going to get sufficient at-bats. "You don't want to see him sit here," he said.
