Diamondbacks 5, White Sox 1

David Banks

Chase Anderson won his major-league debut, allowing one run and pitching into the sixth, and the bullpen preserved the lead the rest of the way. Gerardo Parra and Miguel Montero homered, as we took 3 series in a row for the first time since June 2012.

Anderson's debut was just about everything we could have asked for, and then some. Following a trend, he faced the minimum through three innings, the only base-runner gunned down at second. But he took 34 pitches to do so. He had a clean slate into the sixth, but with one out, a long at-bat ended in a White Sox homer, and after the next batter walked on four straight balls, Kirk Gibson had seen enough. A very creditable debut: two hits, a walk and six strikeouts for Anderson, allowing the one run in 5.1 innings. Joe Thatcher, Evan Marshall, Brad Ziegler and Oliver Perez completed things with 3.2 shutout frames.

Arizona got on the board before making an out, after a Gerardo Parra (outfielder-assisted) triple and Martin Prado single. They added two more in the fifth, on Parra's fourth home-run of the season, and topped things off with Miguel Montero's fifth long-ball in the ninth, another two-run shot. Montero reached base safely four times, with two hits and two walks, while there were multi-hit games for Prado, Parra, and A.J. Pollock, who also walked and stole a pair of bases. The victory ends a very good road-trip for the D-backs at a 6-3 record.

We now head home for series against the Nationals and Dodgers, beginning on Monday night. MarinerHousewife will be along with the guest recap in a bit, becoming only our second guest who gets to discuss a win!
