Diamondbacks 2, Pirates 3

Justin K. Aller

Wade Miley was better than I remember seeing him. Ever. He was perfect through 4 2/3 inning, and even after giving up a bad luck hit (and getting himself a throwing error trying to get the runner), he shut the Pirates down all night long except for the first two batters in the ninth. In 8+ innings, he got ten strikeouts, including striking out the side in both the fifth and seventh innings, only four hits, and no walks. To say he dominated tonight is a huge understatement. His finally line didn't show that, but he really did. However, he did struggle in the ninth, giving up two hits without getting an out. Reed came in and, of course, blew the lead. 3, 2 Pirates.

Meanwhile, the Diamondbacks' offense did really well in a sense, getting on base fairly consistently, but still struggled, because they didn't bring hardly anyone home. In the first four innings, they left six runners on without managing to score. To make it worse, most of the baserunners got on with only one, or less, outs in the inning, but they still weren't able to come around to score.They broke through in the fifth, however, getting two runs thanks to RBI's from Montero and Hill, and that wasn't enough. Final score, Diamondbacks 2, Pirates 3. Full recap to follow.
