Hernandez look to continue success vs. Rockies on short rest

Aug 31, 2007 - 3:17 PM Colorado (68-65) at Arizona (75-60) 9:40 pm EDT

PHOENIX (Ticker) - The Colorado Rockies have not fared well against Livan Hernandez this season. Luckily for them he's pitching on short rest.

Hernandez takes the hill on three days rest as the Arizona Diamondbacks open a three-game series with the Rockies on Friday.

Hernandez (9-9, 4.86 ERA) has dominated the Rockies in four starts this season, posting a 1-0 record with a 1.93 ERA. However, the 32-year-old righthander is 0-4 with a 5.23 ERA in five career starts while pitching on short rest. On Monday, Hernandez lost his second straight start as he allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings of a 3-1 loss to San Diego.

Rookie Mark Reynolds homered and tied a season-high with five RBI, while closer Jose Valverde survived a ninth inning rally as the Diamondbacks avoided a four-game sweep with 8-7 win over San Diego on Thursday.

Arizona (75-60) leads San Diego (73-60) by one game in the National League West, and Los Angeles (70-63) by four games.

Rookie Ubaldo Jimenez (3-2, 4.03) takes the mound looking to help the Rockies gain ground on Arizona. Colorado (68-65), which has won four of six, is five games behind San Diego for the wild card, and six games out of the division lead.

Jimenez has been outstanding his last three starts allowing just two runs in his last 20 innings. On Saturday the 23-year-old righthander held Washington to one run and three hits in seven innings of a 5-1 win.
