Arizona Diamondbacks 11, Pittsburgh Pirates 2: Score Early. Score Often.

Arizona has won every which way this series in Pittsburgh from comebacks, pitching duels, and blowouts. Difficult to complain with that much variety.

Record: 14-11. Pace: 90-72. Change on 2018: -4.

Score early. Score often. The D’backs wasted no time setting off the fireworks tonight jumping ahead of the Pittsburgh Pirates in the first inning. Former Padres and Rockies pitcher Jordan Lyles took the start for Pittsburgh this evening, and his poor track record against Arizona continued...

Snake Bytes 4/24: Weaver Great Under Pressure

The Diamondbacks pulled off a narrow win on Tuesday, relying on 6 1?3 strong innings from Luke Weaver and the aid of instant replay to eek out a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Arizona 2, Pittsburgh 1

Pittsburgh’s Trevor Williams was in fine form on Tuesday, going seven innings and allowing only two runs, while striking out four. Fortunately for Diamondbacks fans, Luke Weaver was up to the challenge. The hard-throwing right-hander contributed 6 1?3 innings of his...

Diamondbacks Minor League Recap 4/23/19: Thou Shall Not Score

The Diamondbacks Minor League affiliates combined to go 3-0 last night. Pitching was the story in all three games, as Visalia (11-game win streak now), Kane County, and Jackson combined to allow 1 unearned run on 22 hits in 27 combined innings. Apparently they took notes of what Luke Weaver did to Pittsburgh yesterday. Not bad when the organization has a total ERA of 0.00 for the day. All three games proved to be mostly comfortable wins, with the closest margin being 3 runs. V

Dbacks 2, Pirates 1: Weaver Secures Series Split

The win also guarantees a winning road trip for Arizona

It was a pitcher’s duel in PNC Park tonight. Luke Weaver took the mound for the Diamondbacks, and Trevor Williams toed the rubber for the Pirates. Both pitchers successfully worked around one out hits in the first, and Williams recorded a 1-2-3 inning in the top of the first.

Weaver was the first to blink in the bottom of the second, but only a little. He gave up a lead off single to Colin Moran, but got Bryan Reynolds to strike out...

Luke Weaver wins second start in a row, D-backs beat Pirates

PITTSBURGH — Jarrod Dyson dived around catcher Francisco Cervelli but was only credited with the winning run after a replay review, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-1 on Tuesday night. Dyson bolted from third base on David Peralta’s grounder in the sixth. Second baseman Adam Frazier fielded and threw home, and Dyson went head-first past Cervelli as the backstop applied the tag. Plate umpire Gerry Davis called Dyson out, but the call was quickly overturned on...

Arizona Diamondbacks 2, Pittsburgh Pirates 1: Quick Recap

The Arizona Diamondbacks are now 6-2 on the 10 game road trip squeaking out a one run victory in the Steel City.

Welcome to the quick recap. I’m your substitute for this segment. No need to check your calendar as it is indeed Tuesday and you are not mistaken. ISH will be around in a few hours for the full version of events.

The starting pitchers for both teams, Luke Weaver and Trevor Williams, are both younger than me, so that’s cool. I’ve got a feeling I’ll be saying that much more...

Walker, Arizona Diamondback

Walker has been an impressive bat so far this season. Will it last?

With the loss of Goldy, it seemed like there was a massive void at first base. The team’s plan to ride with a Jake Lamb/Christian Walker platoon was hampered when Lamb went down with a left quad strain in the 7th game of the season.

This plan is also being hampered by the fact that Christian Walker is hitting .347/.413/.722 (188 wRC+) with 7 HR, 13 RBI, and 13 runs and has easily been the best hitter on the team so far...

Christian Walker among leading early Rookie of the Year candidates

Our first-baseman is getting his chance, and has seized it with both hands.

You might be surprised to hear that a 28-year-old in his fifth major-league season is still rookie eligible, and Baseball Reference originally stated that Walker had lost his eligibility after the 2018 campaign. However, after we saw Fangraphs still listed him among the rookies, we reached out to the Diamondbacks PR department, as well as Baseball Reference. After both parties double checked with Elias and MLB, they...

At first the Arizona Diamondbacks were losing, and then they weren’t. This is what fun feels like.

[D’backs.com] For D-backs, rallies are better late than never - Monday evening’s comeback was a quick way to forget about Sunday’s frustrating loss. Pirates starter Joe Musgrove held Arizona to only a single run over the first six innings of the game, but his teammates in the bullpen imploded allowing the D’backs to score eleven...

Mike Hazen and team expect Blake Swihart to hit

Taking a deep dive on the newest Diamondback

Blake Swihart will join the Diamondbacks starting this Monday in Pittsburgh, and according to Torey Lovullo will see most of his initial time on the outfield corners spelling Adam Jones and David Peralta. Based on earlier comments from Mike Hazen, he might also see some time on the infield corners. All jokes aside, he’s not here to be the 4th catcher. He’s here because Mike Hazen believes he will hit, and provide positional flexibility...

Arizona Diamondbacks 12, Pittsburgh Pirates : 7th Inning Shenanigans

Come for the recap, stay for the Adams Family connections!

Coming off of a terrible meltdown from Archie Bradley yesterday against the Chicago Cubs, the Arizona Diamondbacks needed a win. With a rather interesting 7th inning, they were able to do just that.

Before we head into the recap, Former Mountain Pointe Star Cole Tucker chatted with Jody Jackson of Fox Sports Arizona:

Sure he plays for the @Pirates, but we can be happy for @cotuck since he was a lifelong @Dbacks fan, right?
