SnakeBytes, 5/16: High Five Edition

Gerardo Parra indicates the number of runs Arizona needs to score in order to win.

The Diamondbacks' last four wins have all come when scoring exactly five runs,. Indeed, we are 9-1 this season when putting up a five-spot. Which is odd, because we are only 5-3 when scoring more than five times. Guess that lulls our pitchers into a false sense of security or something. Suspect five runs might not be enough in the next couple of games, this being Coors Field...


  • [AZ Central] Diamondbacks offense comes alive in win over Dodgers - "For weeks, their lineup has been filled with hitters trying to make up for a bad month and a half with one big swing. But, on this night, at least, they seemed to realize that less is more."
  • [MLB] Miley slows Dodgers as D-backs end slide - "I was trying to stick with Miggy and keep challenging guys and throwing strikes, quality pitches and let the defense play," Miley said. "I was commanding the fastball early in the count and I was able to work off of that. He called a great game tonight. We didn't get away from the plan. Everything he put down we went with and it was fortunate that it worked out."
  • [AP] Diamondbacks top Dodgers 5-1 - ''The biggest thing was getting the bases loaded, and guys came through with big hits,'' Bloomquist said. 'If you were trying to be picky, we left a lot of guys on base. The positive is, we had a lot of guys on base.''
  • [True Blue LA] Billingsley, Dodgers Comfortable With Progress, But Not Results In Loss - "The Dodgers hope that the results come soon for Billingsley, who has allowed 20 runs (16 earned) in 24 1/3 innings over his last five starts, with 15 walks and 20 strikeouts. That beginning of the season for Billingsley, with featured a 1.33 ERA through three starts with just one walk and 17 strikeouts, is starting to seem like a long time ago."
