Game 1: April 10th: Dodgers@Diamondbacks

Pitching Matchup: LHP Brett Anderon vs. RHP Chase Anderson

Game Notes:

Chase Anderson will make his 2015 debut for the Diamondbacks when the heated rivaled between the Dodgers and Dbacks continues today.

Anderson was one of most consistent starters for the Dbacks in 2014. He was called up in May, and in 21 starts he went 9-7 with a 4.01 era. He had a great spring, and won the fourth spot in the rotation.

He is 1-1 with a 4.96 era against the Dodgers in his career across 16.1 innings pitched with twelve strikeouts.

Gonzalez (.333) has a good track record against Anderson in a small sample size of 6 at bats.

Brett Anderson will make his debut for the Dodgers. Anderson barely reached 90 mph in his last spring start, so all eyes will be on the radar gun when he is on the mound.

In his last three starts against the Dbacks, he is 0-1 with a 4.50 era. Aaron Hill is hitting .429 in 7 career at bats.
