Frankie Montas sharp as A’s beat Diamondbacks, 2-1

Perhaps the A’s have found the key to unlocking Frankie Montas’ potential at the major-league level: Let him pitch the first inning. Montas, who struggled with Oakland as a reliever last season, returned as a starter Sunday and held the Diamondbacks to one run in six innings in a 2-1 A’s win at the Coliseum. It was a welcome sight for the A’s, who due to injuries were using their ninth different starting pitcher already this season, tied for second-most in the majors. Matt Chapman’s two-out RBI single off Zack Greinke broke a 1-1 tie in the bottom...

Snake Bytes 5/22: Free Falling

This is not fun right now. Brewers 4, Diamondbacks 2 [D’backs.com] Greinke can’t contain Crew as D-backs fall - The Arizona Diamondbacks have been removed from at least a tie of first place in the National League West for the first time since the beginning of the season. Zack Greinke was not particularly terrible in the loss, although he did surrender three home runs, but once again the offense gave him absolutely no breathing room. Zack recorded nine strikeouts, five hits, and no walks over six innings. Andrew Chafin and Fernando Salas combined for two innings of scoreless...

Cabrera’s pinch-hit home run, Rosario’s two home runs lead Syndergaard, Mets to victory

Cabrera’s pinch-hit home run, Rosario’s two home runs lead Syndergaard, Mets to victory

The Mets completed their first home three-game sweep since September 2016. After enduring a gloomy week of gray, drizzly games, Sunday afternoon was finally a beautiful day for baseball. And the Mets entered the day with bright prospects for a sweep, as the Diamondbacks pushed back Zack Greinke for extra rest and called up Clay Buchholz to make his first start of the year against Noah Syndergaard. Buchholz pitched well, carrying a 1-0 lead into the bottom of the sixth, but the Mets struck quickly with three home runs in the sixth and seventh to seize the lead and take the game. ...

Rays 2, Angels 5: Should have left that Romo fella in

Rays 2, Angels 5: Should have left that Romo fella in

Romo opens, but the Rays can’t close It is said that baseball gonna baseball. And on Sunday, May 20th, the Year of our Lord 2018, baseball did indeed Baseball. For it was on this day that the phenom, Shohei Ohtani, got the start and was not the talk of the game. That’s because all anybody wanted to talk about was Sergio “The Opener” Romo, making his second “start” in as many days. This was the first time a pitcher started on back-to-back days since Zack Greinke in 2012. And Grienke was ejected after four pitches in that one, so it’s not like that should even count. For...

Mets 4, Diamondbacks 1—In a pinch

Cabrera’s pinch-hit home run, Rosario’s two homers lead Mets to sweep of Diamondbacks. It was a slow start for the Mets this afternoon, stymied by Clay Buchholz—making his first start of the year in place of the pushed back Zack Greinke—over the first five innings, managing only one hit over those first five. Meanwhile, the Diamondbacks scratched out a run in the top of the second with a pair of singles and a run-scoring ground ball off of Noah Syndergaard. Amed Rosario promptly deposited Buchholz’s second pitch in the bottom of the sixth over the left field wall for his first...

Sunday Sundries: Milwaukee Brewers Week 8 In Review

Sunday Sundries: Milwaukee Brewers Week 8 In Review

Now THAT was a good great week! When the Brewers left on their ten game road trip, Brewers fans were just hoping for a winning record, but perhaps expecting a losing one. After all, Milwaukee was facing two second place teams and a first place team in their Rockies, D’Backs, and Twins tour. But a 5-1 week (with the only loss to old pal Zack Greinke, 2-1) has put the Brewers 1 1⁄2 games up on Pittsburgh, with the most road wins - and most wins - in the National League.

Snake Bytes 5/16: Daniel Desclutcho Snaps Streak

The Diamondbacks’ offense struggled yet again, scoring only two runs on three hits. Timing is everything however, as Daniel Descalso’s eighth-inning knock pushed home the winning run, ending Arizona’s losing streak at six games. Milwaukee 1, Arizona 2 Zack Greinke and Jhoulys Chacin engaged in an old-fashioned pitching duel. Of the two, Chacin had the better night, but neither one of them finished the game. The Diamondbacks had better luck against the Milwaukee bullpen than the Brewers did against the three-headed monster of Hirano, Bradley, and Boxberger. Descalso Comes Through in...

PHOENIX — Daniel Descalso singled home Jarrod Dyson with two outs in the eighth inning, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1 on Tuesday night to snap a six-game losing streak.The Diamondbacks opened the game with the worst batting average in the majors (.223) and learned earlier in the day they had lost A.J. Pollock for four-to-eight weeks with a fractured left thumb. They then managed just three hits against starter Jhoulys Chacin and three relievers, but starter Zack Greinke stifled Milwaukee over six innings and Arizona tied together just enough offense to get...

Arizona Diamondbacks 2, Milwaukee Brewers 1

It wasn’t pretty, but it was a win. Zack Greinke and Jhoulys Chacin were involved in a pitching duel this evening at Chase Field. The Brewers were the first to strike, a pair doubles getting them on the board in the fourth inning. But the D-backs immediately came back to tie things up in their half - though perhaps unsurprisingly, did it despite being hitless with a runner in scoring position. The run scored as Steven Souza hit into a double-play. Greinke was otherwise very solid, and as last start, deserved better than a no-decision. He allowed one run over six innings, on four hits and...
