Snake Bytes 8/15: Still in First

The Diamondbacks salvaged a split in Texas behind the pitching of Patrick Corbin and the hitting of Paul Goldschmidt. The result - Arizona maintains a one-game lead on the NL West as they head into San Diego for a four-game series this weekend. Arizona 6, Texas 4 Patrick Corbin put in a good showing, giving Torey Lovullo seven innings of work during which he struck out seven and walked none. Paul Goldschmidt and Alex Avila both took Texas pitching deep. Corbin Leads the Way Patrick Corbin continued his strong season, throwing seven innings of three-run ball. Corbin has now gone three...

Diamondbacks 6, Rangers 4: Goldy Leads Offense, Corbin Quiets the Rangers

Goldschmidt got the game started on the right foot, and it just kept getting better from there. It didn’t take long for the Diamondbacks to get on the board in Arlington, and it came from a familiar source. With one out, Paul Goldschmidt worked a 2-0 count against Yovani Gallardo and deposited the third pitch into the seats for his 27th home run of the season. 1-0 Diamondbacks They kept it going in the second inning as well. A single from Steven Souza Jr. and a double from Ketel Marte to move him to third started the inning, setting things up for Daniel Descalso. He grounded out to first...

Arizona Diamondbacks 6, Texas Rangers 4

Patrick Corbin got the W for seven solid innings, as Arizona took a much-needed win. Paul Goldschmidt’s 27th home-run of the season gave the Diamondbacks a first inning lead in Arlington. A ground-out off the bat of Daniel Descalso the next inning doubled the lead, and Arizona then scored twice in the fourth. A Descalso double made it 3-0, and he was later able to score on a wild pitch. However, the Rangers chipped away, getting a run back immediately. After Alex Avila delivered tacos with his sixth home-run of the year in the sixth inning, Texas responded with two, making the score 5-3....

Snake Bytes 8/14: Losses are bigger in Texas

Arizona opens up the series against Texas with a loss. Arizona Diamondbacks 3, Texas Rangers 5 [D’backs.com] D-backs stumble again vs. struggling Rangers - The D-backs seemed in good position with their ace Zack Greinke on the mound, and they caught a break in the first inning when, with Paul Goldschmidt at second, right fielder Joey Gallo froze on a line drive hit by A.J. Pollock and the ball sailed over his head. That allowed Goldschmidt to score and Pollock to reach second, where he scored from one out later on Steven Souza Jr.’s double to left. That would usually have been enough...

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 9, Cincinnati Reds 2: Goldy oversees a Red Wedding

Arizona Diamondbacks 9, Cincinnati Reds 2: Goldy oversees a Red Wedding

The D-backs we wanted finally showed up in Cincinnati Record: 65-54. Pace: 88-74. Change on 2017: -1. While Arizona still lost the series, there’s a moral victory here as well as the actual one, because they outscored Cincinnati in total, 12-11. The Diamondbacks hit a season-high five home-runs on the road, to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Reds. [Arizona previously scored five at Chase in the 20-5 pounding of the Padres, and six on June 1 as they beat the Marlins 9-1] The final margin doesn’t necessarily reflect the game as a whole, since most of those home-runs came in a four-run...

Arizona Diamondbacks 9, Cincinnati Reds 2

Much needed tacos will be delivered to Arizona tomorrow, all nine runs coming on five D-backs’ home-runs. The Diamondbacks managed to avoid the sweep in Cincinnati this afternoon, riding five home-runs to victory in the series finale. Daniel Descalso got the team off to a fast start, reaching double-digits for the year with a three-run shot to center (above), giving Arizona the lead with two outs in the first. The Reds chipped away against Zack Godley, scoring single runs in the second and third - though one was unearned, due to Godley’s own error. But Goldschmidt restored the lead...

Diamondbacks 3, Reds 6, Frustration Mounts

Dbacks blow leads of 2-0 and 3-2 as Archie Bradley has another rough outing and Matt Harvey has a great night This was supposed to be the “soft spot” of the schedule for the Diamondbacks. A 9 game road trip against 3 teams well under .500 was supposed to kick start a Diamondbacks stretch run in their quest to make the post season. Instead, they’ve dropped the first 2 games of 3 to the last place Cincinnati Reds and will try to salvage the series finally tomorrow. The frustration started right in the first inning. On the 2nd at bat of the game Paul Goldschmidt launched a deep...

Arizona Diamondbacks 0, Cincinnati Reds 3

Not the start to the road-trip we wanted. As the old joke goes, the D-backs offense was left back in Arizona, the team being almost completely handcuffed by Anthony DeSclafani in Cincinnati this evening. The team managed only two hits through the first seven innings, singles by Paul Goldschmidt and A.J. Pollock, and didn’t get a man into scoring position through that point. Their best scoring chance off the Reds’ starter came in the eighth, when singles by Steven Souza and Nick Ahmed chased DeSclafani, but Alex Avila hit into a double-play. Clay Buchholz was almost freakishly...
