Arizona Diamondback 4, San Diego Padres 2

Arizona Diamondback 4, San Diego Padres 2

Patrick Corbin was stellar, and the D-backs won their seventh series in a row. There can’t be many pitchers who strike out the side, and then give up a two-run homer in the same inning. But that was the only blemish on Patrick Corbin’s record this afternoon at Chase: in the sixth, Jeff Mathis could not corral Corbin’s 11th K of the game, and the next batter went opposite field. Patrick was otherwise awesome, holding San Diego to two hits and one walk over six innings. It seems somehow unfair those two runs appear to be counted as earned, if the ESPN box-score is to be believed. Much...

Diamondbacks 8, Dodgers 7: One Down...Nineteen to Go

Jeff Mathis saved us all from an uncertain end A familiar opponent walked into Chase Field today, as game 1 of 19 against the Los Angeles Dodgers went the way of the good guys. The team stayed resilient, which led to the longest game in Chase Field history. The 2018 Dodgers-Diamondbacks series will not start off like it ended. While only being 4 games into the season, the humidor effect seems to be real. It may be an overreaction, but it seems like it will damper power expectations for whatever team is at Chase Field. Taijuan Walker had a really rough start to the game, allowing three runs...
