DUNEDIN, Fla. — Sid Bream's three-run home run was the big blow in a seven-run sixth inning Saturday as the Dodgers rallied for a 10-6 exhibition victory over the Toronto Blue Jays.
Toronto starter Doyle Alexander allowed only four hits and three runs in the first 5 innings before giving up five consecutive hits and seven runs in the sixth.
After striking out Al Oliver and Pedro Guerrero to start the sixth, Alexander yielded a single to Mike Scioscia, a single to Mike Marshall, a run-scoring single to Greg Brock and Bream's three-run homer. Ken Landreaux later added a run-scoring single, and second baseman Damaso Garcia then fumbled a grounder by Oliver that allowed two more runs to score.
The Dodgers took a 1-0 lead in the first when Steve Sax walked, stole second and scored on Oliver's single.
Toronto tied the score in the third as Garcia singled off winning pitcher Jerry Reuss and scored when Reuss threw wildly past first base after fielding Lloyd Moseby's tapper to the mound.
