PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) - Matt Kemp collected his first two hits with San Diego, his first single coming off Chicago White Sox prospect Carlos Rodon in the Padres' 5-0 victory on Friday.
Kemp, traded by the Dodgers in the offseason, lined a single to left over a shift in the first. He flied to center and legged out an infield hit before exiting in the fifth, two days after going 0 for 3 in his spring debut.
Kemp dropped a shallow fly in a stiff wind to right in the second, but recovered to get a force out at second.
Rodon, the third pick in the 2014 draft, struck out four and hit a batter in two scoreless innings. The left-hander started in place of injured ace Chris Sale.
Odrisamer Despaigne and Brandon Morrow, competing for the final spot in the Padres' rotation, threw two scoreless innings each.
