Eventful fourth inning turning point for D-backs

Did Yasmany Tomas lose the ball in the sun? That's not uncommon for left fielders in the late afternoon at Miller Park, after all, so it was one theory after the D-backs left fielder saw a leadoff double fall at his feet in the fourth inning on Saturday.

Arizona Diamondbacks 1, Milwaukee Brewers 6

Somebody took a no-hitter into the 8th inning today. Spoiler: it wasn’t Zack Greinke

This was one of those days when Torey Lovullo opted to rest everyone, meaning we got a line-up that included Nick Ahmed, Jeff Mathis AND Rey Fuentes. But we can’t blame that for this defeat on a day when the D-backs’ only hit off the opposing starter came from Ahmed, and Zack Greinke had his worst outing since mid-April. Former After walking the first two batters, former Arizona starter Chase Anderson...

50 games in: The Arizona Diamondbacks’ playoff odds

Going quite well, isn’t it?

Another ten games in the book, so time to revisit the standings, the playoff odds of the various projection systems, and what history tells us has happened to previous teams with the Diamondbacks’ current record.

Remember when we were worried? It doesn’t seem all that long ago, when we were bemoaning the Diamondbacks failure to win a series in May. As late as the last time I wrote, on May 15, that was true. and with the loss of A.J....

Snake Bytes 5/27: Taking a Lost One Back

Much has been made around here of some of the games in the early stretch of the season that the Diamondbacks probably should have won but didn’t. Last night the Diamondbacks took one back in Milwaukee.

Arizona 4, Milwaukee 2

Chris Iannetta was the story for the Diamondbacks in this one. After recovering a wild pitch in time to gun down Eric Thames trying to score in the sixth, he went to work with the bat in the ninth. With two outs in the top of the ninth and the Diamondbacks down one,...

Arizona Diamondbacks: Godley turned in fourth straight quality start

Right-hander Zack Godley of the Arizona Diamondbacks lowered his ERA to under two runs per nine innings.

Arizona Diamondbacks 4, Milwaukee Brewers 2: Effectively wild

Two wild pitches, with different results, proved the key plays as the D-backs won their fifth in a row

Record: 31-19. Pace: 100-62. Change on 2016: +10.

Yes, you read that right: we’re already 10 games up on where the Diamondbacks were, 50 games into last season. In 2016, we had just dropped our fourth in a row, losing 10-3 to San Diego, and were just half a game up on the last-place Padres in the division. This year, we have the third-best record in all baseball. I was hoping for some...

Arizona Diamondbacks 4, Milwaukee Brewers 2

Both starting pitchers did their job, and so this one was decided late. Very late.

Zack Godley was excellent through the front five innings, blanking the Brewers almost entirely and keeping them off the board. He needed to be that good, as the D-backs’ hitters were stifled almost as much by the Milwaukee starter. However, they had the game’s only run, courtesy of Jake Lamb’s 14th home-run of the year, an utter bomb into the second deck at Miller Park. Godley seemed to flag in the...

Mike’s Hardball Talk: University of Virginia’s draft prospects

Which Virginia player slated to go in the Top 10 is best suited for the Diamondbacks?

Two of the prospects slated to go in the Top 10 include the University of Virginia’s Adam Haseley and Pavin Smith. Both players are safe MLB projections compared to other players in the draft due to their advanced approach at the plate and solid defense at their respective positions. Both players are also impact bats from the left side, Haseley being more of a top of the order hitter whereas Smith is a...
