Gameday Thread, #26: 5/3 vs. Nationals


Ian Kennedy
RHP, 3-0, 3.38


Ross Detwiler
LHP, 2-1, 1.64

Sometimes, I'm glad to be otherwise engaged:

Oh, hang on: let me place an emergency phone-call to Mrs. SnakePit, and get her to record this televisual treat. Who's with me?

[Tumbleweeds roll across the SnakePit]

Thought not. Line-up and, perhaps, fractionally less sarcasm, after the jump.

  1. Willie Bloomquist SS
  2. Aaron Hill 2B
  3. Justin Upton RF
  4. Jason Kubel LF
  5. Paul Goldschmidt 1B
  6. Miguel Montero C
  7. Ryan Roberts 3B
  8. A.J. Pollock CF
  9. Ian Kennedy RHP

For some reason, I thought we were going to face Strasburg this trip, but I guess we are denied that particular treat. Not that Detwiler has exactly sucked, but rather him than the NL Pitcher of the Month for April. With a left-hander on the mound, Pollock gets to start in CF instead of Parra, but otherwise, it's a fairly standard line-up, with Bloomquist sitting on top of the line-up. Kennedy's last couple of starts have been kinda meh, him fighting through the bad stuff rather than using the good, but if he gets back on track, I'm optimistic the D-backs can take the game, and win back-to-back series on the road.
