The left-hander was making his first appearance since July 17.
Analysis: Hill (1-0) was on the disabled list with a blister on his left middle finger when the Dodgers acquired him from the Oakland Athletics on Aug. 1 along with outfielder Josh Reddick. His next start is Monday at Colorado.

Analysis: Hill threw 78 pitches in a simulated game Thursday and reported no problems with the blister issues that have sidelined him since mid-July, when he was then still a member of the A's. The left-hander will remain a risky play until he proves he's completely over his injury problems.

Hill had previously notched 10 straight quality starts with a 1.86 ERA, striking out 71 over 63 innings. It's unclear when his next start will come, though Hill said he'll need at least three or four days to heal.
