Reynolds homer not enough to lift D-backs over Dodgers

April 13, 2010 by  

The Arizona Diamondbacks sent Ian Kennedy to the mound to start against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the Dodgers first home game of the year. The Dodgers put on a show for their fans as they got to Kennedy for six runs on six hits, three walks and also allowed three homers in the game.

Kennedy had a solid spring and a strong outing in his first start of the year, but struggled today lasting only 4.1 innings. In the six hits Kennedy allowed three were homers, two were doubles and there was one single.

The Dodgers sent Clayton Kershaw to the mound for the home opener and he lasted 5.1 innings allowing five walks and three hits which lead to 2 runs. What saved Kershaw from an even rougher outing was striking out seven D-back hitters.

The D-backs were able to score three runs in the seventh inning off former teammate Russ Ortiz. The big hit came off the bat of Mark Reynolds who hit his third homer of the season for two runs. Chris Young continued to be one of Arizona’s hottest hitters going 2-for-4 with his 12th RBI of the season.

The D-backs are now 4-3 on the season and tied for second place in the NL West.
