SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Matt Cain pitched two perfect innings in his spring debut, Yasiel Puig hit his first home run of the exhibition season, and the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants played to a 5-5 tie Monday.

Brett Anderson allowed one hit over two innings in his debut with the Dodgers. The left-hander was limited to eight starts last year with the Colorado Rockies due to a broken left index finger and lower back surgery.

Cain, who did not pitch after July 9 following elbow surgery, needed just 20 pitches to complete his outing.

Ryan Vogelsong followed Cain, allowing Puig's home run over his three innings. He did not walk a batter and struck out four. Joaquin Arias and Brandon Hicks drove in runs for the Giants.

Erik Bedard pitched two scoreless innings in relief of Anderson. The non-roster left-hander walked one and struck out two. Jimmy Rollins tripled and doubled for the Dodgers. Howie Kendrick and Andre Ethier drove in runs.
