Dice-K has good outing in Indians' loss to ChiSox

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Daisuke Matsuzaka made his final Cactus League start of the spring, working 5 1/3 strong innings in the Indians' 5-4 loss to the Chicago White Sox today.

Matsuzaka, who allowed two runs on five hits, will report to Triple-A Columbus when the Indians break camp. The Japanese right-hander is working his way back to the majors after undergoing Tommy John surgery last June.

He opened with four scoreless innings before Chicago scored two runs in the fifth on Gordon Beckham's RBI single to left and Alejandro De Aza's bunt single between Matsuzaka and first base that scored Dewayne Wise. Three of the five hits allowed by Matsuzaka were out of the infield.

Angel Sanchez hit a two-run homer to tie it in the eighth for the White Sox, who scored a run in the ninth on Steve Tolleson's bases-loaded walk for the win.
