Diamondbacks Close Road Trip Strong, Beat Dodgers 4-1

Nice close out to an otherwise miserable 3-6 road trip through California. The Diamondbacks held a surging Dodgers team to a combined one run in last 18 innings. Ian Kennedy did his part in Sunday's 4-1 victory with six strong innings that included eight strike outs. 

Offensively, the Diamondbacks got to Ted Lilly in the second inning with a pair of homers from Xavier Nady and Ryan Roberts along with a Chris Young RBI sacrifice fly.

The Diamondbacks return home with a 17-22 record and face the San Diego Padres in a two-game series and then host the Atlanta Braves and Minnesota Twins in a seven-game home stand. Daniel Hudson is scheduled to get the start on Monday although nothing's been announced.

Diamondbacks Break Through Behind Collmenter's 1st Start, 1-0

Josh Collmenter pitched six scoreless innings in his first major league start and Melvin Mora hit a sacrifice fly to account for the only run scored, as Arizona defeated Los Angeles, 1-0, despite getting just one hit in the second of a three-game series.

Collmenter (2-0) allowed just two hits and struck out three, getting the start after appearing in relief seven times this season. He retired the final 11 batters he faced after allowing a one-out double to Chad Billingsley in the third inning.

Stephen Drew had the lone hit for the D-Backs as Arizona ended its five-game slide.

Billingsley (2-3) took the hard-luck loss after allowing one run and one hit while fanning eight through eight innings.

James Loney had two of the Dodgers' four hits as their three-game winning streak came to an end.

Diamondbacks 1, Dodgers 0: One Hit Won-ders - AZ Snake Pit
For those that were previously unaware, the Diamondbacks' tomahawking Josh Collmenter made his first Major League start today. What better place to do it than on Fox Saturday Baseball, in front of the fervent Dodgers fans in the West with their eyes glued to Fox Saturday Baseball? Saying that Josh earned himself another start is probably in the running for understatement of the year, as he absolutely shut down Los Angeles during the six innings he was permitted to go tonight.
