Reds Vs. Rockies: Alex White, Bronson Arroyo Duel In Afternoon Contest

The Colorado Rockies ran into Homer Bailey on Friday night and came up empty, losing 4-1. Sloppy defense in the sixth inning also contributed to the Rockies' woes. On Saturday, the Rockies will turn to Alex White one day ahead of Drew Pomeranz's major league debut.

White (1-1, 7.41 ERA) picked up his first win as a Rockie on Saturday and had to thank his bullpen for the last four innings of the game. White did allow four runs in five innings, but he didn't have a repeat of six walks from his previous outing. Still he walked three and allowed a leadoff home run in the first inning. Josh Roenicke, Huston Street, Rex Brothers and Rafael Betancourt held things together for the 5-4 victory.

The Reds will turn to Bronson Arroyo (8-11, 5.00 ERA), who missed the Rockies when they visited Cincinnati in August. Arroyo just threw eight innings and allowed two runs. He was beat up by the Phillies for five runs in his start before that. Arroyo's made three starts at Coors Field, including two over the last two seasons. In 2010, Arroyo failed to finish five innings, allowing seven on eight hits.

First pitch is scheduled for 2:10 p.m. MT.
