Snake Bytes 8/18: Ray Does Not Shine, Goldschmidt Happens

It was a night that featured a little bit of just about everything, including yet another home run by Paul Goldschmidt, who now has four on this trip. Arizona 9, San Diego 4 Once again, Robbie Ray looked both good and vulnerable at the same time. Paul Goldschmidt continued to make people forget he ever struggled this season. David Peralta was missing in action. Zack Greinke pinch-hit. Nick Ahmed got ejected for telling a crap umpire he was doing a crap job. New York still cannot get replays correct. The night had a little bit of everything, but in the end, it’s result is all that really...

Diamondback 9, Padres 4: Long Strange Night in San Diego

Diamondback 9, Padres 4: Long Strange Night in San Diego

Mystery, early offense, early pitcher exits, ejections, home run controversies, and more Heading into tonight’s game the recent trends for Robbie Ray starts have been high pitch counts, short outings, and a Diamondbacks loss. The first two trends would continue but happily the 3rd would not, as the offense scored early, middle, and late to pick up their errant starter. The game began with an odd episode. David Peralta was “unavailable” . Nick Piecoro gave us the following explanation: .@nickpiecoro on David Peralta's absence from both the #Dbacks' lineup tonight and Petco Park...

Snake Bytes 8/13: Time to Build a Lead

The Diamondbacks finally beat the Reds to avoid a sweep and take a one-game lead over the Dodgers in the NL West. Diamondbacks 9, Reds 2 Goldy and Godley did their jobs today and the win became relatively easy. Perhaps like it should of been for the first two games of this series. Goldy smashed two home runs and Godley continues to look like he did last year, while improving his record to a gaudy 13-6. David Peralta hit another homer to build on his hot streak. The Rangers are next with Greinke on the hill. A two-game sweep will ease the pain of two losses in Cincinnati and hopefully...

Arizona Diamondbacks 3 Cincinnati Reds 6

Offense Struggles early, bullpen struggles late as DBacks lose series Matt Harvey went 7 innings, limiting the D Backs to just 2 runs on an Eduardo Escobar Homerun, (with help from a great catch from Billy Hamilton). Robbie Ray only managed 5 innings tonight, on 106 pitches, giving up 2 runs. Leaving 12 outs on table for the bullpen tonight was just a little too much. After the D Backs took a 3-2 lead in the top of the 8th on a David Peralta homerun, Archie Bradley , (asked to throw over 30 pitches) and TJ McFarland would allow 4 runs in the bottom of the 8th to give the Reds a 6-3...

Even during the inconsistency, the Diamondbacks have had one player that has carried the team on his back since Opening Day, and it’s not who most people would think of right away.

D-backs set defensive runs saved record with 46 games left The D-backs’ 108 defensive runs saved (DRS) as of Thursday is the most by a team in a single season...
