Snake Bytes 6/19: Civility Restored

Norm Hall

There appeared to be no fallout from Tuesday night bean ball game when the Diamondbacks and Brewers took to the field for game three of the four game set.

Quick Quotes

"I think that was the softest ball he hit all night. He hit the ball hard all night and can't get a hit. He hits a nubber through the middle and wins the game. It's pretty good for him."

-Wade Miley

"Martin's at third, so I knew all I had to do was find a way to put a ball in play and beat it to first. So just getting a ball in play, hitting it on the ground [was key], because hitting it in the air pretty good wasn't working."

-Tony Campana

"He's got a nice slider that he buried, and we chased it some. But he locates well, and as long as you can get those pitches inside, you're going to be tough to hit."

-Ron Roenicke

Daily Digest

Diamondbacks Win on Campana's First Walk-Off

Once again, Wade Miley allowed a home run to the opposition at Chase Field. This time however, he still managed to limit the damage, making it through 7 /23 innings allowing only three runs on five hits while striking out eight. Then, Tony Campana (you read that right) came through with a soft hit off the end of his bat that trickled its way back through the middle of the infield to push across the go-ahead run in the form of Martin Prado.

Kershaw Perfect, But Ramirez Not

Clayton Kershaw was dominant against the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night. He struck out fifteen batter. He didn't allow a hit. He didn't even walk anyone. But Kershaw was stuck having to "settle" for a no-no, as Hanley Ramirez committed a two-base throwing error in the seventh inning.

Padres Remember Tony Gwynn

The Padres were home on Wednesday night to take on the Mariners. It was their first game home since the passing of team legend and baseball icon, Tony Gwynn. They wasted no time making sure to publicly honor the man known to many as Mr. Padre.

New Number One Prospects?

Jim Callis takes a look at what 2014 draftees likely sit as the new organizational number one prospects. Some familiar names are on his list.

Video Highlights

Clayton Kershaw

Corey Dickerson didn't stand a chance as Kershaw tallies his 15th K of the game and completes the no-no.

Bartolo Colon

The pudgy 12-year veteran is not exactly known for his hitting prowess. In fact, quite the opposite. So it was a bit of extra amusement for fans, teammates, and commentators alike when he hit the first extra-base hit of his career on Wednesday. (I really wouldn't want to be Lance Lynn there.)

Nelson Cruz

The Baltimore slugger does his best Roy Hobbs impersonation.

Alex Gordon

Fourth inning, two outs, runner on second, the Tigers' J.D. Martinez dumped a Texas Leaguer in left center field to score a run - until Alex Gordon did that thing he does.
