GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Hyun-Jin Ryu had the final tuneup for his season debut, pitching into the sixth inning Sunday for the Los Angeles Dodgers during a 3-3 tie with the Colorado Rockies.

Adrian Gonzalez drove in two runs for the Dodgers in their last spring training game before leaving for Australia, where they will open the season next weekend with a two-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Ryu is scheduled to pitch the second game, on Sunday.

The Dodgers were scheduled to leave Phoenix for Sydney at about midnight.

Ryu allowed two runs and seven hits over 5 1-3 innings. He struck out three and threw 88 pitches.

The left-hander's day ended one batter after Nolan Arenado sent a 2-2 pitch to left for a solo home run, his first this spring.
