I was impressed by Lopez's outing. He even handled the bat really well. His first AB he got it to a 2-2 count and fouled off a couple of pitches before making an out (it think it was a groundout). His line was 3 hits, 1 walk and 5 strikeouts over 5.1 ip.
Zavada came in after Lopez left. .2ip walked one and struck out another and got a flyout.
Vazquez threw an inning, did not give up a hit, but walked 3 and gave up a run on a Joe Inglett sac fly.
Heilman and Qualls pitched the 8th and 9th respectively giving up only one hit.
Good game. Not a good game for DBBPs David B. I was impressed by Carlos Gomez's speed, but I think everyone knew he was fast. Bunt single, and then a stolen base. DD has on #25 now. Most of his pitches were flat and he was doing the quick delivery. He needs to stay being slow. In 5ip, he had 9 hits, 6ERs, 4BBs and 3Ks.
The Diamondback offence proved once again that you can score 9 runs without the benefit of 4 longballs. Only Brandon Allen in the 7th hit a longball. CY led things off and walked 3 times, scoring 2 runs. The first run of the ballgame, in the 1st inning came on a LaRoche single. He was removed after a couple of innings for Jeff Bailey, I do not know why. Reynolds had two hits for 2 RBIs and Montero had two hits including a bases clearing double in the 3rd inning.
I was next to this woman and her daughter. The girl (sounded like she was) mentally handicapped. She kept saying things like, "I want daddy to come into the game" and pointing randomly and saying daddy. I dont know what to think of that. It could be I was hearing wrong, I was paying attention to the game, not to a 10 year old. It was just weird. I thought about asking if they knew any of the players, but I dont like talking to ppl I dont know so I did not.
They gave commemorative pennants for fan appreciation day. It has on it "Spring training 1998-2010" as if it was an epitaph.
