Diamondbacks 4, Angels 5: Late Rally Falls Short

Diamondbacks 4, Angels 5: Late Rally Falls Short

The offense waited until the top of the ninth to really put anything together, and by then it was too late. Both teams started the scoring off early. Jon Jay lead off the top of the first with a single. Paul Goldschmidt struck out, and Jake Lamb single. During Lamb’s at bat, Angel’s starter Felix Pena launched a wild pitch, so after the single, Jay ended up at third. Peralta came to the plate and grounded into a fielder’s choice, bringing Jay home from third. In the bottom of the inning, Ian Kinsler lead off with a solo home run off Matt Koch in response. Tied at 1 Arizona put...

Jarrod Dyson’s highlight reel catch saves the game. Arizona Diamondbacks 7, Los Angeles Angels 4 [D’backs.com] Goldy, D-backs back Greinke, hold off Halos - I was excited to see Paul Goldschmidt and Mike Trout together on the same field. The first inning two run home run from Goldy over the head of Trout ensured that I would not be disappointed. Ketel “Extra Base Hit” Marte followed with his own solo shot in the 2nd to put Arizona up 3-0 early against a difficult Angel’s lineup. “I was just trying to hit something hard,” Goldschmidt said. “I was able to get it up in the...

Arizona Diamondbacks 7, Los Angeles Angels 4: Bombs Away

The Beard Heads West After a horrific ending to the New York Mets series, the Diamondbacks went West to visit Mike Trout and the Los Angeles Angels. Zack Greinke faced up and comer Jaime Barria. The game was presented on ESPN and it delivered. The first inning started with Jon Jay singling with a ground ball up the middle. Paul Goldschmidt then blasted a ball to the waterfall in center field which was a great sight for many D-backs fans including our very own Keegan Thompson. That sound off the bat though! And in case he somehow didn't hear it, Mike Trout got a good look at this Goldy...

Arizona Diamondbacks 7, Los Angeles Angels 4

Three home-runs and another Dyson web-gem were key to a winning start on the road-trip. The Diamondbacks got started early, with a two-run homer from Paul Goldschmidt, not even a handful of pitches into the game. Ketel Marte added a solo shot, and further RBI from Jeff Mathis and Jarrod Dyson pushed the score to 6-0 by the middle of the fourth. Zack Greinke appeared to be cruising, but then allowed back-to-back home-runs to Justin Upton and Albert Pujols. He ended up going 6.1 innings, with three runs on seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts. Things looked very dicey in the...

Snake Bytes 6/16: Goldy, Godley Strikes Torture Mets

Paul Goldschmidt continued to set the world afire with his bat and Zack Godley managed to escape a 2nd and 3rd, no outs jam with three strikeouts in the third. New York 3, Arizona 7 The Arizona offense continued to put their long stretch of offensive futility behind them, rapping out seven runs on 12 hits and four walks. Zack Godley played with fire, but managed to escape a crucial jam in the third inning on his way to pitching a solid 6 2⁄3 innings.

A wobbly Zack Godley survived and.,.. #GoldschmidtHappened Zack Godley worked through some very scary trouble early on - with the help of a couple of key Mets TOOTBLANs - and ended up with an unlikely quality start. He worked 6.2 innings, allowing two runs on five hits and three walks with eight strikeouts. Key for Zack was escaping without further damage from jams with men on second-and-third and no outs, in both the second and third. Andrew Chafin got four outs although Brad Boxberger had to come for the final out, due to Jorge De La Rosa and his error. Paul Goldschmidt - inevitably -...

Diamondbacks 13, Pirates 8: Six run first isn’t enough, but Dbacks win anyway because baseball is funny like that

Diamondbacks 13, Pirates 8: Six run first isn’t enough, but Dbacks win anyway because baseball is funny like that

At the end of the first, Arizona had a six run lead, and they had a five run lead at the end of ninth, but in between? A little more crazy. The Pirates put together a threat right at the start in the first inning. With one out, Corey Dickerson singled, Starling Marte doubled, and Colin Moran walked to load the bases. However, Clay Buchholz got Elias Diaz to ground into double play, ending the inning with the score still at zero. It wouldn’t remain there for long. Jon Jay lead off the bottom of the inning with his first hit as a Diamondback, a single. Paul Goldschmidt singled as well. A...
