Dontrelle throws six scoreless in D'Backs debut

Jun 6, 2010, 8:39 AM EDT

Dontrelle Willis headshot.jpgDontrelle Willis joined up with the Diamondbacks just a few days ago in a trade from the Tigers and made his Arizona debut on Saturday night against the Rockies.  He did fantastic by his own recent standards, hurling six scoreless innings and earning his first National League victory since going 10-15 back in 2007 for the Marlins.

Does it mean he’s all of a sudden going to turn his career around?  No.  Some of the control issues that plagued him in Detroit cropped up on Saturday, as he walked four batters and threw only 60 of his 106 pitches for strikes.  But he was far better in damage control situations and escaped every major jam that the Rockies’ talented lineup presented to him.

The D’Backs can finish off a three-game sweep of Colorado on Sunday afternoon, but they’ll have to get through Ubaldo Jimenez (10-1, 0.78 ERA) in order to do it.

    Good for the D-train! With the possible exception of Jeff Conine, the original Mr. Feesh, there are still a lot of Feesh fans who think of Dontrelle as a sort of favorite-son-in-exile and we’re still pulling for him to make it. We know he’s physically sound at that his problems are mental – marriage will do that to you – but apparently when he needed his focus he got it back. Best of luck to you kid, and thanks again for lighting the fuse in ’03.
