"It's not about how much, as long as it clears that line," Marshall said. "It still hurts. A loss in a big league game is never something you want to have. But they're good hitters.

The Diamondbacks rallied from a 3-1 third inning deficit to tie the game at three after seven innings. Evan Marshall came on to pitch the eighth.

The 69-year-old won three World Series titles, four Manager of the Year Awards, six pennants, 12 division crowns and 2,728 regular season games.
But being a Hall of Fame skipper does not necessarily mean he'll thrive in his new role as the Arizona Diamondbacks' first-ever Chief Baseball Officer.
The Diamondbacks have a plan for their recovery. They will take it step by step, one small ascent followed by another.
The season is only 1/3 of the way through, but the Blue Jays' Edwin Encarnacion is already starting people talking about the AL MVP.

1,566 Abs into his career, Ben Revere finally drove himself home, and it wasn't even an inside-the-park variety home run. Here are some other nuggets about the home run that got Revere off the schnide after reaching the 5th most career ABs without a home run since 1900.
Not known for his power stroke, the hot-hitting center fielder for Arizona goes yard, to Paul Goldschmidt and Jay Bruce territory.

Apparently he doesn't think home runs should get all the highlights.
