Snake Bytes 5/26: San Francisco Swing

This series in San Francisco has been refreshing, but I could go for a little less feast or famine and more consistency. Arizona Diamondbacks 10, San Francisco Giants 4 [D’backs.com] Clarke makes case to stick in D-backs rotation - Before we discuss the offense, Taylor Clarke deserves just as much credit for yesterday’s victory. In his second career MLB start, he held the Giants to only a single run over 6 & 1⁄3 innings. Clarke exited the 7th inning still responsible for two men on the corners. Andrew Chafin was not as effective and failed to strand those men, so Clarke had two more...

Diamondbacks 10, Giants 4

The cure for what ailed the D-backs offense was clearly a trip to San Francisco The D-backs offense reached double digits for the second day in a row, though fell six runs short of yesterday’s tally. Again, however, the damage started early, with Arizona scoring twice, including once on a Kevin Cron sacrifice fly double-play [just go find the video, it’ll be quicker...]. A three-run third and a four-run fourth kept things going, including Cron’s first major-league hit, a double - he could easily have had three. Ketel Marte, Adam Jones and Tim Locastro all had three hits. The D-backs...

Snake Bytes, 5/25:Hits and Runs for (Almost) Everybody!

The Diamondbacks took full advantage of a depleted San Francisco Pitching Staff on Friday, scoring a new team road record 18 runs. Diamondbacks News Arizona 18, San Francisco 2 Kevin Cron went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts. RObbie Ray took 47 pitches to complete two innings of work, including 27 in the first alone, an inning in which he allowed the Giants to take the lead. Generally, that would spell a rough night for Arizona. The Arizona offense had other ideas though. Even Robbie Ray got in on the hitting fun, driving a single back up the box which ran his opposing counterpart, Drew...

Diamondbacks 18, Giants 2: “They are who we thought they were”

Diamondbacks 18, Giants 2: “They are who we thought they were”

Reports of the death of the D-backs offense were greatly exaggerated Record: 26-25. Pace: 83-79. Change on 2017: +1. The last time I saw such slaughter on the edge of a cove, it was a documentary about dolphins in Japan. The D-backs offense, which mustered a total of five runs across three games in being swept by San Diego, surpassed that tally by the end of the third. Or in the fourth and fifth innings, your choice. The D-backs reached 17 hits while making 17 outs, scoring in each of the first six innings. I’m still checking the record books, but it might have been the most dominating...
