Bourn, Pence homers help Astros spoil Dodgertown farewell

VERO BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Michael Bourn and Hunter Pence hit consecutive home runs and the Houston Astros beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 12-10 Monday in final exhibition game at Dodgertown.

After 60 years at the camp, the Dodgers are set to move next year to an $80 million complex that they'll share with the Chicago White Sox in Glendale, Ariz. The Dodgers play the Marlins at Jupiter, Fla., on Tuesday and wrap up spring training out west.

Tommy Lasorda finished 1-6 in his managing stint with the Dodgers. The 80-year-old Hall of Famer ran the team while Joe Torre took a split-squad to China.

"It was great while it lasted," Lasorda said. "I'm so thankful to have gotten this opportunity. I hope the players learned something while I was here."

Lasorda tried his best to win his finale. He put runners in motion, called for Gary Bennett to put down a suicide squeeze and used All-Star Russell Martin as a pinch hitter during a ninth-inning rally.

J.R. House, David Newhan and Nick Gorneault also homered for the Astros. Rafael Furcal, Andre Ethier and Preston Mattingly homered for the Dodgers.

Furcal got up with the bases loaded and two outs in the ninth, but grounded out.

Both starters had trouble. Woody Williams gave up nine runs in four innings for Houston and Chad Billingsley allowed six runs in five innings for the Dodgers.
