The Dodgers will be getting their first looks at a division rival on Saturday afternoon when they face the Snakes. The Dodgers are playing in their third game of the Cactus League season. After defeating the White Sox 6-1 on Thursday, the boys in blue played to a 3-3 tie against the Rangers on Friday. The highlight of that game was Scott Kazmir’s Dodger spring debut. He allowed two earned runs on six hits across two frames. Scott Van Slyke belted a two-run home run which highlighted the offensive side.
The Dodgers decided to hold Adrian Gonzalez out of the lineup another day because he is still a bit sore after aggravating his rusty neck again. He is expected to be in the lineup on Saturday, but the Dodgers may just wait another day again if he is still feeling sore.
Saturday’s game will give us our first glimpse of Japanese import Kenta Maeda as he will be countering Shelby Miller and the Dbacks. Of course you will all get your first glimpses, while I will be at work yet again. Paying the bills keeps getting in the way of Dodger baseball. Have no fear my lovely Ladodegrreportians, I will be able to watch Sunday’s game with all of you.
In the meantime, the game will be televised on SNLA and MLB.tv at 12:05 PM.
You can also catch the game on the Dodger’s radio Network of AM570. As noted by Clyle via twitter, the game is not on radio today. TV only.
