Carl Crawford hit a two-run single that tied the game in the final inning before a Los Angeles Dodgers split squad lost to the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, the club's high Class-A affiliate, 4-3 in a seven-inning exhibition Thursday night.
Crawford's two-out hit tied the score, but the Quakes won in the bottom of the seventh on Angelo Songco's run-scoring single.
Five major leaguers were in the Dodgers' starting lineup: Crawford, Adrian Gonzalez, Luis Cruz, Alfredo Amezega and Jerry Hairston Jr. Touted prospect Yasiel Puig batted sixth for Los Angeles and went 0 for 3.
Rancho Cucamonga led 3-0 going into the seventh. Chris Reed, the Dodgers' first-round draft pick in 2011, started and threw three hitless innings for the Quakes. He walked one and struck out three, including Crawford and Hairston.
