The Dodgers lost to the Diamondbacks today in Tucson, 6-3, at Kino Veterans Stadium. The game was going well enough for Tim Redding, who allowed three hits in three scoreless innings, but then the fourth inning started. An infield single by Chris Young was followed by a home run by Juan Miranda and another single by Cody Ransom. Then, Redding left the game with a lower back injury.
There is no truth to the rumor that Redding's back injury was related to his fingers hurting earlier:
Redding was followed by Rubby De La Rosa, who pitched three scoreless innings in his own right before allowing three runs of his own in his fourth inning of work.
The Dodgers play Seattle in Peoria tonight. A separate game thread will follow.
