_______________________________________ _________

Arizona will hand the ball Sunday to Livan Hernandez (0-0, 2.57 ERA), who allowed two runs and five hits in seven innings on Tuesday, but did not receive a decision in the Diamondbacks' 4-3, 11-inning loss to the Colorado Rockies  .

Hernandez spent four seasons with Washington - two when the team was in Montreal - before clearing waivers and being traded to the Diamondbacks on Aug. 7. The 32-year-old right-hander returned to RFK Stadium and allowed two runs and six hits in eight innings of a 4-2 win.

The Nationals will counter with Shawn Hill  (0-1, 3.60), who allowed five runs - two earned - and five hits in five innings in a 9-3 loss to the Florida Marlins on Tuesday. Hill's ERA was originally 7.20, but the game's official scorer changed the ruling on a play Wednesday that led to two of the runs being unearned.

This will be the 25-year-old right-hander's first time facing the Diamondbacks.
