Diamondbacks 3, Rockies 7 - From the Get-Go

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports Get well soon Ketel Marte Merrill Kelly lined up for his second start of the year at the impossible to pitch in Coors Field. Coming into the game, Kelly struggled in his previous two appearances. He never pitched there in 2020, but in 2019, Kelly has an ERA of 7.71 across 11.2 IP, allowing three homers and 16 hits. He actually won one of the games, thanks to the offense giving him 8 runs of support, but with Ketel Marte out after his hamstring injury last game, we’d need to see the 2020 version of Kelly in order to get a win. Things did...

Snake Bytes: 4/3 - Just Lulling Them to Sleep, Right?

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports The Diamondbacks have dropped the first two games of the season to the new-look Padres. Here’s hoping this is all just part of some plan to get other teams overly confident and have them fall asleep against Arizona when it matters most. Diamondbacks News Arizona 2, San Diego 4 Merrill Kelly allowed three runs through four innings of work as a starter. Josh Rojas’ defense at shortstop, while not bad, reminded Arizona fans of just how spoiled they have been to have Nick Ahmed playing the position for the last five seasons. Ketel Marte,...

Diamondbacks 7, Padres 8: And, so, it begins

Diamondbacks 7, Padres 8: And, so, it begins

Photo by Mauricio Santana/ [Generic headlines are very useful] Arizona lost their season opener to San Diego, with Madison Bumgarner getting lit up by the Padres for the second consecutive season. However, the team did show considerable fight, coming back from 6-1 down to snatch a lead at the half-way point. While the bullpen couldn’t make it stand up, this game was considerably more entertaining than it looked like it was going to be at the end of the fourth! The Diamondbacks strung together some hits to get on the board in the top of the first. Ketel Marte was able...

First Pitch Swing Decision

First Pitch Swing Decision

Ketel Marte swings and hits a foul ball. | Photo by Ralph Freso/ The Diamondbacks did well when they swung at the first pitch, perhaps because they often saw the pitch they were looking for.  An approach to provide insight on the first pitch. First pitch begins an at-bat with Tableau Rasa, a Latin phrase that means clean slate. It begins with the pitcher and it ends with the batter. What the batter does with the pitch adds color to the slate that endures the entire at-bat. The batter has a big decision – usually made as the first pitch approaches the plate - swing...
