Daily Diamondback Digest
Things looked bleak for the Diamondbacks after two innings in game three of the series against Baltimore. Patrick Corbin was not showing his usual crispness, and the team was down 41- against a formidable Baltimore team. However, 5 more solid innings from Corbin, followed by five shutout innings from the bullpen provided the Diamondbacks' offense the opportunity they needed to make things right. On Wednesday, it was Aaron Hill's turn to crush the Orioles' hopes as he first got to Orioles closer Jim Johnson in the ninth with an RBI single and then to starting reliever Bud Norris in the 14th with another single up the middle with runners on first and second. It was the Diamondbacks' third walk-off win in three consecutive nights.
