Ross, Koch open Padres-Diamondbacks series

PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks' pitching staff has made a steady climb under pitching coach Mike Butcher the last two seasons, so much so that they appear as prepared as any to withstand the loss of No. 4 starter Taijuan Walker.

After its 3-1 victory over San Francisco on Thursday, Arizona has a National League-low 2.87 ERA while tying a franchise record with a 13-5 start and setting a franchise record with six straight series victories to open the season.

Right-hander Matt Koch has the first claim on Walker's rotation start when he opposes San Diego right-hander Tyson Ross in the first game of a three-game home series against San Diego on Friday.
