If there's any consolation to the sweep the Giants just put on the D-backs is that it puts them closer to matching LA for the NL West lead. Which is not something I particularly want in a vacuum, but would certainly be amusing when compared to the $900MM team in the City of Angels.
So what happened in the game? Do you really want to know? Fine.
The Giants scored a run in the 1st, and had a 3 run lead before Arizona could even counter with one run in the 6th. Of course, 'Frisco then scored 3 more runs in the bottom of the 6th and it was good night, Gracie.
Jake Lamb got a homer, so that's cool, but that was about for the visiting team.
Jake Peavy only pitched 5 2/3 innings, but he struck out 8 during his brief time on Earth so I guess it was enough. Randall Delgado started for the Diamondbacks, but only managed 4 innings with 3 strikeouts. After that it was all bullpen, but who cares about them?They're like the primadonnas of baseball, riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight?
The loss now puts the Diamondbacks on a 6 game losing streak, and tied for last in the NL West with the Rockies. The Diamondbacks remind their fans that depression ice cream will not be provided unless you buy a Super Special Ticket Package that comes with a swift punch to the gut by a pant-less Baxter.
235 comments is more then I would have thought for an afternoon game at the end of this long season, so good job to all the people in the Gameday Thread. Roll call: Angry_Saguaro, AzRattler, Clefo, GuruB, Jim McLennan, JoeCB1991, JoelPre, Makakilo, MrMrrbi, Paulnh, SenSurround, Steven Burt, The Lord Humungus, david.munter, ford.williams.10, onedotfive, preston.salisbury, and shoewizard.
Tomorrow sees the Diamondbacks return home to Chase Field to face the Padres. First pitch is at 6:40pm, so if you can't find something more useful to do with your time, tune in, I guess.
