Series Preview # 7: Padres @ Diamondbacks

Series Preview # 7: Padres @ Diamondbacks

Photo by Norm Hall/ Time to turn it around vs. the boys in brown The Diamondbacks and Padres have already faced off 7 times in this short season, and the results have not been good. The D-backs are just 2-5 vs. San Diego this year and have been outscored 35-17. The Padres have clubbed the D-backs into submission, out homering them 15-6. Nobody has hurt them more than Fernando Tatis Jr. who’s hit 4 homers off them while going 11 for 27, batting .407 with a 1.467 OPS. Ouch! All 7 of those games were in San Diego. This three game series at Chase Field is the last time the teams will...

Nick Ahmed Was Battling a Sore Shoulder

Nick Ahmed Was Battling a Sore Shoulder

Photo by Norm Hall/ The Gold Glove Short Stop is Feeling Better Now Nick Ahmed was asked after the game tonight about his slow start to the season not only at the plate, but in the field where he seemed a bit off the first week or so of the season. Recently he seems back to his old defensive form, so the question was posed as to what was different. In the course of that discussion he revealed that he suffered a shoulder injury in summer camp: “We played our summer camp games and I didn’t get hardly any action …two or three groundballs maybe the whole summer camp, we hardly got...

Is your team getting hosed by the umpires?

Is your team getting hosed by the umpires?

Photo by Denis Poroy/ You’re sure the answer is yes, aren’t you ? Thanks to Baseball Savant Search Page we can look up some pretty cool stuff. The data for this article was pulled Saturday afternoon, and the article is published Sunday morning so a day out of date. We are dealing with small sample sizes, but I thought it was still worth presenting what I found while down the rabbit hole today. What I was looking at is how many bad balls and strike calls have been made, and which team’s are benefitting the most from them. At the above linked page you can find the Gameday Zone...

Diamondbacks 3, Padres 2: Merrill Kelly Sharp, Starling Marte Sparks offense

Diamondbacks 3, Padres 2: Merrill Kelly Sharp, Starling Marte Sparks offense

Photo by Denis Poroy/ DBacks win a well played game One can be forgiven for thinking here we go again as tonights game progressed through the first three innings. The much-maligned Diamondbacks offense has been at their worst early in games and tonight was no exception. Facing Padres ace Chris Paddack, they went hitless through the first three frame, with just two baserunners courtesy of a walk and an error. The D-backs have scored just 7 runs and hit .150 with 1 homer in innings 1-3 on the season, worst in the majors. Meanwhile the Padres jumped out to a 1-0 lead on yet another leadoff...

Series Preview #5, Diamondbacks @ Padres

Photo by Norm Hall/ D-backs flying high as they travel to San Diego The Diamondbacks return to the scene of the crime that was the start to their season. They began the year dropping three of four to the Padres and were largely dominated by San Diego pitching, scoring just 9 runs in the four game set. In a sign of things to come until game two of the Houston series, the Diamondbacks offense went on to struggle for the next 7 games before finally breaking out with a 9 run 4th inning enroute to a 14-7 victor on Wednesday. They came from behind again the next night to walk off the Astros...
