De La Rosa, D-backs eye bounceback vs. Brewers - mlb.com game preview

Jungmann has been terrific since a June promotion to the Major Leagues, and has been particularly tough of late. He owns a 1.29 ERA over his last five starts, and has made a quality start -- six or more innings with three or fewer earned runs -- in each of his last four outings. In his first eight Major League starts, Jungmann has held opponents to a .211 average. The D-backs will counter with Rubby De La Rosa, who pitched seven innings of one-run ball in a win over the Marlins on Monday to snap a skid of four straight starts without a win.
