Stephen Fife hit hard in season debut
by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com (4/21/2013) Making his first start of the season, Dodgers pitcher Stephen Fife permitted four runs and seven hits over 4 2/3 innings during Los Angeles' 7-4 win at Baltimore on Sunday. Fife, who took the place of Chad Billingsley in the team's injury riddled rotation just hours before the start of the game, finished with five strikeouts and walked a batter.
The right-hander stumbled from the beginning in his sixth career major-league outing and was tagged for three runs in the first inning. He also allowed a solo homer to Adam Jones in the third.
"Kind of below average," Fife said about his performance. "I'd like to have come out of the game better, gotten deeper. I kind of failed in one aspect but gave us enough of a chance to walk out of here with a win."
Fife is expected to remain in the rotation for another start, scheduled for Saturday at home against Milwaukee. He went 0-1 with a 2.93 ERA in three games at Dodger Stadium last season.
