SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Ian Kennedy had his best outing of the spring and Los Angeles’ Clayton Kershaw had to wait an extra 5 1/2 hours to take the mound in the Arizona Diamondbacks’ 3-0 victory over a Dodgers split squad on Monday night.

Kennedy, already named Arizona’s opening day starter by manager Kirk Gibson, allowed three hits, struck out six and walked three in 5 1-3 innings.

Kershaw was supposed to start the Dodgers’ earlier split squad game Monday but that was rained out, so he had to travel to Scottsdale to make the chilly evening appearance.

The Los Angeles lefty gave up two runs and eight hits in five innings, striking out five and walking two.

Miguel Montero and Melvin Mora each singled in a run off Kershaw in the fourth inning.
