Share |
Los Angeles Dodgers Right field Yasiel Puig

Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, California

Arizona - Collmenter, J (0-1) vs. Los Angeles - Beckett, J (0-0)

The MLB schedule makers must really like that early season Diamondbacks/Dodgers matchup because Sunday marks the 8th time the teams will meet in the first 19 games of the year. The Dodgers had won the first 5 before a 4-2 Arizona win Friday night snapped the streak. The Diamondbacks send Josh Collmenter (0-1) to the mound against Josh Beckett (0-0). Collmenter makes his second start of the season after coming out of the bullpen. The right-hander got a loss the last time out after giving up 3 runs in 4 innings but reaching his pitch limit of 75 in a return to the rotation.

Collmenter had 6 relief appearances against the Dodgers in 2013, scoring a 1-3 record after allowing 5 runs in 11 innings which included 4 HR. Catcher A.J. Ellis, who has two of those long balls, is on the DL but the Dodger roster as a whole is hitting .365 (19 of 52) against Collmenter.

The Dodgers counter with Beckett who makes his third start looking for win number one. It would behoove Beckett to pitch well in this contract year but he got off to a rocky start on April 9th against Detroit, allowing 4 runs in 4 innings. Beckett has since buckled down and threw 5 innings of 2-hit, shutout ball against the Giants.

Beckett made just 9 starts last year while recovering from a nerve injury in his hand but 2 were against Arizona. He pitched well allowing 1 run in a complete game loss and a 6 inning, 3-run no-decision. Arizona 2B Aaron Hill looks to improve on his .218 season average when facing Beckett, who he's batted 15 for 38 (.395) against with 7 doubles.
