Quotes

"I hadn't really thought about it. I don't imagine anything happening. It's part of the game, so we want to go out there and try to win, and I'm sure they want to do the same. It broke my hand, but it's part of the game. Every team has injuries. You just try to get healthy, and I was able to do that and have kind of forgot about it now."

- Paul Goldschmidt

Goldschmidt holds no grudge with Pirates - dbacks.com

D-backs first baseman Paul Goldschmidt saw his 2014 season end against the Pirates on Aug. 1 when reliever Ernesto Frieri hit him in the left hand with a pitch, fracturing it. Friday night was the first meeting between the two teams since the incidents, and Goldschmidt said that he holds no ill will toward the Pirates. Besides, Frieri is no longer on the Pittsburgh roster.

Burnett takes on the D-backs at 8:10 p.m. ET, in the same place and on the near anniversary of arguably his best '14 outing, eight innings of five-hit, eight-strikeout, no-walk pitching in a 2-0 win on April 27. Rubby De La Rosa, on the other hand, will be facing the Pirates for the first time in his career. None of the 26-year-old right-hander's 31 career starts have come against the Bucs.
