SnakeBytes 3/24: Spring Training Pt. 2

At least Paul Goldschmidt was ready to play in Australia.

The D-backs arrived back in Arizona earlier today and prep for another short week of Spring Training games starting on Wednesday before they jump back up for their home opener on the 31st.

Opening Series leaves a lasting impression | dbacks.com: News
The scoreboard showed that the Los Angeles Dodgers had beaten the Arizona Diamondbacks, 7-5, to take both games of the Opening Series and make a 15-hour flight back across the Pacific seem a bit shorter because of a cushion atop the National League West a week before the other teams even start playing. And as the fans filed out of the Sydney Cricket Ground, the grounds crew began to think about how to take what had been so beautifully transformed into a baseball stadium worthy of an Opening Day and restore it back to its alignment as an iconic pitch for cricket and Australian rules football.

Shortstop competition no clearer for D-backs, Owings struggles in first Opening Day start | ArizonaSports.com
Owings got the first crack at making an impression, but his first Opening Day start didn't quite go according to plan in Arizona's 3-1 loss. Didi had his chance, but had the same result, as he went 0-3.
