The starters for Saturday will be right hander Michael Bosinger going for the Diamondbacks as he will oppose right hander Dan Haren for the Dodgers. Bolsinger has had one relief appearance for the Diamondbacks and allowed two earned runs and six hits over three innings of work on Monday against the New York Mets. Haren is off to a good start for the Dodgers as the right hander is 2-0 with an ERA of 2.04 and WHIP of 1.02. Arizona was able to edge the LA Dodgers on Friday in the opener 4-2 in 12 innings. The Dodgers were shorthanded in their bullpen as manager Don Mattingly decided to rest both Brian Wilson and Kensley Janson on Friday night due to a huge workload the series before against the San Francisco Giants. Mattingly was forced to use relief pitcher Chris Perez a second inning and it proved costly as the Diamondbacks pushed across two runs in the top half of the 12th inning. With the temperatures cooling in their games at San Francisco and at home in Los Angeles on Friday we have seen the offense struggle for the Dodgers. The team has scored no more than two runs in each of their past four games as they have not adjusted well to the thick marine layer on the California coast that keeps fly balls in the ballpark.
