SnakeSounds: 6/14 vs. Giants

PHOENIX, AZ - JUNE 14: Miguel Montero #26 of the Arizona Diamondbacks hits a three run home run against the San Francisco Giants during the sixth inning of the Major League Baseball game at Chase Field on June 14, 2011 in Phoenix, Arizona. (Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)
It's the second straight game [Collmenter's] pitch-count got up there in five innings. You've got to give the opponents credit, they grind him out a little bit, foul some balls off, laying off some pitches they weren't laying off earlier.
-- Kirk Gibson

Damn close. In the end, a couple of errors - mental or otherwise - were the difference between the teams, not least Miguel Montero's pickoff throw which allowed the Giants to pad their lead to 5-0. However, given his three-run homer was a large part of the comeback, we can't condemn him too much. Josh Collmenter struggled again with putting opponents away: this is feeling a bit like Max Scherzer v2.0. After Gibson, we have Collmenter, Montero and D-backs draftee Trevor Bauer, who has been in attendance at Chase today.
