March 2 (UPI) -- The Los Angeles Dodgers appeared to be in postseason form with a 10-0 win over the Colorado Rockies in their second spring training game of 2021. Trevor Bauer also was dominant in his first appearance for the Dodgers.

Los Angeles out hit Colorado 14 to 2 in the victory Monday at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Ariz. Bauer -- the 2020 National League Cy Young Award winner -- allowed just one hit and had two strikeouts in two innings.

"There's a lot left physically that I haven't been able to tap into," Bauer told reporters Monday. "I've been trying the last couple of years to figure out what it is, but I have to throw harder to maintain pace with the league.

"I'm still in my physical prime."

Neither team scored in the first inning. The Dodgers then went up 2-0 on a two-run home run from center fielder D.J. Peters.

Dodgers right-fielder Matt Beaty added to the lead with an RBI single in the third inning. Gavin Lux then plated Zach McKinstry with another RBI single in the bottom of the fourth frame. The Dodgers went on to add a total of six runs in the fourth inning to break the game open.
