TANKAPALOOZA 2014 UPDATE
The post-Bronson Arroyo era began with a bang on offense, as the run support fairy returned to Chase Anderson's side.
The Diamondbacks got going in the 2nd inning, starting off with Martin Prado hitting a solo shot to make it 1-0, this being Prado's David Peralta hit a two run double to make it 3-0 and Miguel Montero also hit a two run double to make it 5-0 and to get to Tacos minus one only in the 2nd.
Anderson got into a little trouble in the top of the 4th. He had let Casey McGehee and Garrett Jones reach second and third with nobody out, but a strikeout, soft tapper to the mound, and a fortuitous lineout straight to Aaron Hill
Ender Inciarte got on base to lead off the bottom of that same inning , Peralta tripled to bring in Inciarte to make it 6-0. A Paul Goldschmidt double made it 7-0 and a Hill sac-fly made it 8-0 and made the Marlins go to the bullpen early.
The Marlins got closer in the most technical sense of the word when Adeiny Hechavarria hit a sacrifice fly in the 6th to make it 8-1. It was only a sacrifice fly due to a very nice catch by Gerardo Parra who also almost got McGehee on a throw at the plate. They probably could have gotten more, it being a bases loaded situation with only one out, but they didn't.
Chase Anderson may not have needed all that run support, as he was on point all game. He only gave up one run on seven hits with eight strikeouts, three of which were of Giancarlo Stanton.
A Gerardo Parra double and a Didi Gregorius triple made it 9-1 in the 7th inning, and the score held as such thanks to the bullpen.
As the graphic at the top implied, the Diamondbacks, with this win, are no longer in last place in the NL West. Ha ha Rockies, you are dying.
Cool!: David Peralta, +21.7%
Eh?: Aaron Hill, -5.0%

I give this COTN to soco, because I laughed at it and yeah
If you look up
‘tough’ in the dictionary, you’ll find the definition of tough.
Just because you made it warm doesn't make it yours.
