SnakeBytes 7/13: Shutout for the good guys

Thearon W. Henderson

The D'backs once again we're involved in a shutout, but this time they we're the team on the right end of it as they downed the Giants 2-0.

Quotes

"I really didn't feel too great. I give a lot of credit to [catcher Miguel Montero] right there, he stuck with me, we battled. I was able to move the fastball in and out, kind of found it later in the game. They hit some balls hard, but fortunately they hit them at people. I'll take those."

- Wade Miley

"I don't feel good at home plate right now, I admit it, but I don't feel frustrated. I'm just working hard every day and I feel like in the second half it will be great. Maybe one or two games getting two base hits and I'll feel better. Mentally, I'm thinking too much. I want a base hit, I want to help us win. Too many things in my mind."

- Gerardo Parra on slump

Miley turned in his third impressive start in a row Saturday afternoon as he helped the D-backs beat the Giants, 2-0, in front of a sellout crowd at AT&T Park.

Parra to welcome mental rest during All-Star break; Anderson's next start pushed to after All-Star break - dbacks.com

The All-Star break cannot come soon enough for D-backs outfielder Gerardo Parra. Parra has hit just .140 since June 27 and is 1-for-11 over his previous three games entering Saturday. There are no health issues with Anderson, but the rookie threw just 88 innings for Triple-A Reno last year and is already up to 93 1/3 innings this year between Double-A Mobile and the big leagues. With that in mind, the team wants to be proactive in limiting his innings where it can.
