The Dodgers look to get back in the W column tonight in Arizona with a rematch between Noah Syndergaard and Zach Davies as Chase Field. Shortstop Miguel Rojas misses his fifth straight game with a groin issue and you start to wonder if the team should have considered just putting him on the injured list last weekend.
Here’s the lineup that Dave Roberts is sending out to face Davies.
Davies held Dodgers hitters off balance last week, allowing just 4 hits and a run over 5 innings. The run came on a Will Smith homer, his third off the D-back right-hander in his career. Freddie Freeman has owns Davies in his career with a .412 average over 17 at-bats.
Noah Syndergaard gets his first start in the road grays as a Dodger coming off a 6 inning, 6 strikeout debut last week. Hopefully Dodger pitching can earn fans a free Jumbo Jack tonight in Phoenix.
First pitch for Saturday’s game is different once again for some reason. Game time is 5:10 PM PT. You can watch the game broadcast on Spectrum SportsNet LA, or listen on AM570 LA Sports Radio or KTNQ1020 in Spanish.
