PHOENIX (AP) - Max Scherzer recorded just two outs in a rough spring debut for the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Scherzer allowed five runs, one earned, and three hits as an Arizona split squad lost 11-3 to the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday. The right-hander also committed a costly throwing error on a comebacker in the first inning.

Scherzer, the Diamondbacks’ No. 5 starter, had been out with a sore shoulder.

Sean Gallagher pitched four scoreless innings for Oakland. He allowed three hits, struck out two and walked one.
