Four Dodgers pitchers combined to hold the Red Sox to just five hits - and only one over the last four innings - as Los Angeles shut out Boston 3-0 on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Sox had their best chance to score in the top of the first inning when they had two on and one out but David Ortiz was robbed of a base hit on a nice play by Howie Kendrick and Sandy Leon grounded out to end the threat.

Eduardo Rodriguez took the loss going just 4.1 innings. He was charged with all three Dodgers runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out five.

Ortiz started at first base for the first time in almost a year and made two very nice defensive plays.

Former Red Sox first baseman Adrian Gonzalez led the Dodgers with three hits.
