Diamondbacks 9, Pirates 3

Diamondbacks 9, Pirates 3

See, the offense wasn’t dead...it was only resting! This one started off a bit rough, with a Christian Walker error on the first play of the game. Starter Robbie Ray wound up giving up two runs in the frame, and using 26 pitches to get through it. Not an auspicious beginning. It turned out okay, though, as the Diamondbacks offense flared to life and Pirates starter Nick Kingham was, well, not good. Kingham threw 36 pitches, and gave back the two runs we’d spotted the Pirates thanks to base hits by Jerrod Dyson, David Peralta, Adam Jones, and Ketel Marte. Ray settled down after that, in...

Diamondbacks 1, Braves 2

Diamondbacks 1, Braves 2

Another excellent start from Zack Greinke was foiled by sputtering offense Zack Greinke allowed one run over seven innings, but the Diamondbacks could only muster one run themselves, as the series was leveled at Chase Field tonight. The Braves scored the first tally of the game, Dansby Swanson coming home in the fourth inning. But Arizona tied things up in the sixth, as a David Peralta triple down the right-field line scored Ketel Marte. Greinke was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the seventh, after an excellent night’s work. He held the Braves to five hits and no walks,...

Snake Bytes 5/10: A Blast and a Bloop

Luke Weaver continues to impress and D-backs bats do just enough. Diamondbacks 3, Braves 2 Luke Weaver continues to make the Goldy trade more palatable. Second strong game by a starter for the D-backs that kept the game close to set up some late game heroics. In the bottom of the ninth, David Peralta did what he has done before with a game-tying homer. It was so beautiful and majestic that he had no choice but to admire it. Ketel Marte blooped a single for the game winner that was credited as Duplantier’s first. Related: A Catch, a Homer and Bloop Push D-backs Past Braves Related:...

Ketel Marte’s Power Breakout, Part 2

Ketel Marte’s Power Breakout, Part 2

Marte has decided to be a complete power hitter now. You might have noticed something has changed with Ketel Marte this season. Last season, this author wrote about how Ketel Marte was going through a power breakout, but he was still having some growing pains: namely, hitting too many ground balls and still lacking power from the left side, where he bats the majority of the time. This power breakout was a big deal - it was so substantial, that it led some people (this author including) to consider when Marte might try being a full-time right-handed hitter. Apparently, Ketel Marte likes to...
