As soon as Matt Kemp walked into the Dodgers' clubhouse for their Thursday evening workout, he was teased by teammates for his performance in the Home Run Derby.

Kemp, the National League captain, hit only one home run late in his turn and was eliminated in the first round.

"Please hit one, Matt," A.J. Ellis said, recalling what he was thinking at the time.

Kemp laughed as players continued teasing him.
