Seattle's Jesus Montero, who hit two home runs, hit a two-run homer in the second inning and Stefen Romero followed with another shot. With two out in the third, Nick Franklin's pop fly eluded the Dodgers' fielders for a double, and Justin Smoak followed with a two-run homer. Beckett allowed six hits and five earned runs.
Beckett tried to work on locating his fastball — in to left-handed batters and out to right-handers.
"I didn't know their guys ... were in our meeting before this game," Beckett joked. "They figured it out pretty quick."
A poor outing in spring often leads to talk about how a pitcher isn't concerned about results, but is trying to tweak his repertoire of pitches.
"Everybody says that during spring training, but you obviously want to have good results," Beckett said. "You don't want to pitch badly. .. Balls were leaking back to the middle of the plate. I guess I need to work on that. That's sort of what I wanted to work on, and it didn't go good."
Montero later hit a solo homer.
Joc Pederson hit a two-run homer for Los Angeles.
The game was a sellout, with an announced crowd of 13,427
