Diamondbacks look to continue hot start in home opener

Apr 9, 2007 - 2:48 PM Cincinnati (4-2) at Arizona (5-2) 9:40 pm EDT

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- The Arizona Diamondbacks are riding high heading into their home opener.

The Diamondbacks send Doug Davis to mound Monday when they host the Cincinnati Reds.

Arizona surrendered just six runs over the weekend in a four-game series sweep of the Washington Nationals.

Davis (0-1), acquired from Milwaukee in the offseason, allowed three runs - none earned - and eight hits in five frames in his first start for the Diamondbacks against Colorado on Wednesday.

Bronson Arroyo (0-1) will try to overcome a rough opening outing when he takes the mound for Cincinnati. The veteran righthander gave up four runs and eight hits despite striking out nine batters in seven innings against Chicago on Wednesday.

Arroyo is 0-2 with a 5.30 ERA in four games - two starts - against Arizona in his career.

The Diamondbacks have lost four straight home openers and were 39-42 at Chase Field last season.

Arizona rookie center fielder Chris Young may miss the game after pulling a groin muscle running out an RBI single in the eighth inning Sunday.
