The Dodgers and Diamondbacks are opening the 2014 regular season in Australia on Saturday, which means Mark Trumbo is playing his first game with his new team. Arizona acquired him in a trade with the Angels over the winter.

Because Paul Goldschmidt is entrenched at first base, Trumbo will play left field full-time for the D-Backs. He played there briefly a few years ago, only 75 games plus one more in the minors. His inexperience showed on Scott Van Slyke's second inning double:

Missed it by that much. To make things worse, Trumbo grounded out to end the first inning with two men on base. Not the best first impression.

The double moved Adrian Gonzalez to third base. He then came around to score the season's first run on Andre Ethier's ground ball.
