Videl Nuño was great tonight. He didn't pitch anything at all like the former independent league pitcher that we were promised. Instead, he pitched like... an ace. I'll admit, and I don't think I'm alone in this, I wasn't expecting much out of this game. Nuño showed me up tonight. He went seven innings, no runs, only three hits, no walks, and set career highs in both innings pitched and strikeouts.
Normally, I focus almost exclusively on the Dbacks during the quick recaps, but I've got to give credit to Brad Hand, the Marlins starter. He also pitched well tonight, giving up only one run, scattering eight hits, two walks, and a couple of strikeouts over six and a third innings. Any other night, he probably gets the win, but Nuño just straight up out-pitched him. I'll take words I wouldn't type tonight for $1000, Alex.
The Diamondbacks went into the ninth with a one run lead. Addison Reed came into pitch. He gave up a lead off walk, struck out Giancarlo Stanton, and then gave up a home run Marcell Ozuna.This is my shocked face. 2-1 Marlins, and that would be our final score. Full recap to follow
