SnakeBytes 4/12: Shut-out edition

Christian Petersen

The D-backs were shut out for the 2nd time this season, dropping their record to 4-9.

Quotables

"He had a good outing. Unfortunately he made a couple bad pitches at the wrong time. He wanted to get the pitch low and away, but missed it both times, which Agon didn't miss. And on the third time he just took that pitch the other way like a good hitter does."

-Kirk Gibson on McCarthy's outing

"You guys know we need innings out of guys, and he gives us a chance to win a ballgame," Gibson said of Collmenter. "He's shown that in 2011, he's done it out of the bullpen. Just looking at our options, we think that's the smartest way to go. We're going to go with this and see how it works."

The D-backs are taking games against the Dodgers as any other normal game. After not going to sleep until 4 a.m, Gibson ordered the team not to be dressed until 5 p.m. The D-Backs will celebrate Jackie Robinson's life with a series of events against the Mets.

Bronson Arroyo says 200 innings within reach - azcentral.com

The 200-inning mark is special for a lot of pitchers, but none more so for Diamondbacks right-hander Bronson Arroyo. He's reached that total in eight of his past nine seasons, and the one year he didn't he was short by just a single inning.

Bumgarner the hitter | MLB.com

There's a lot of way to lose a baseball game. You can lose by a walkoff, going 0-12 with RISP, shut-out by some random pitcher, etc. I'm pretty sure none of those compare to the way the Rockies lost.

The old saying says that it's not illegal if you don't get caught. In baseball, sometimes it isn't illegal even if you do.
