Snake Bytes, 4/18: Coming Up Short

USA TODAY Sports

Another game in New York, another heart-breaker. After dropping a close game against the Yankees' ace, the Diamondbacks will look to Patrick Corbin to right the ship.

"I definitely wish I would have had that pitch back, I wish I would have slowed the game down a little bit more, but it was just a bad pitch. I knew that he was probably geared for a fastball right there, so I just didn't throw it where I wanted to throw it."

"He was one pitch away from getting out of it, and he couldn't get it done," Montero said. "It's pretty sad, because he threw a heck of a game."

Diamondbacks Drop Second Close Game to Yankees

Despite hanging three earned runs on a sharp-looking C.C. Sabathia, the Diamondbacks came up short, dropping the second consecutive game in which they actually help the lead. Wade Miley looked good for 6.2 Innings before hitting a wall and losing the strike zone. Travis Hafner had the big hit in the 8th.

Pollock Continues to Impress

With Kubel moving to the DL in order to make room for Ross on the 25-man roster, Pollock remains in the starting lineup, and he is doing everything he can to make sure he remains there.

Strikeouts are King

Or at least they were on Wednesday night where, among other events, Felix Hernandez and Max Scherzer faced off in a game that went 14 innings and tallied 40 combined strikeouts.

The Excitement of a Clean Hit

Tom Verducci and friends can complain all they want about collisions at the plate. With the score tied 1-1 after a marathon affair, the Tigers/Mariners game ended in about the most exciting manner imaginable - and Buster Posey wasn't injured. No one seems to be complaining now.
