Edwin Jackson made his first start of the season with an impressive display after being recalled from Class AAA Las Vegas prior to the game to start in place of Wilson Alvarez, who is out with a strained left hip and a sore right foot.
The 20-year-old right-hander was impressive but likely will be returned to the minor leagues barring any setbacks to Alvarez or Hideo Nomo, who is on the disabled list with a split fingernail.
Jackson (1-0) allowed just one run, three hits and three walks. He threw 54 of 96 pitches for strikes and had three strikeouts.
