"Sure, it could be a possibility. This guy, he's so dominant and his ball has so much life. And you see the velo(city) is there. I love the kid, I love the story and I think the sky is the limit for him as long as he stays healthy, whether it's in the 'pen or it's in the rotation."

"We're fine. I think both teams want go compete. Both teams are trying to win games. All that other stuff is just 'BS.' We're just going to play."
- Chip Hale on Diamondbacks-Dodgers feud
1B Paul Goldschmidt connected for his first home run of the season, a three-run, opposite-field shot into the pool area in the third inning. Pennington drew a one-out walk off Dodgers reliever J.P. Howell, moved to second on a wild pitch and took third on a stolen base. Inciarte pulled the first pitch he saw past a diving Adrian Gonzalez at first base, giving the Diamondbacks their second win in four games this season.
Ender Inciarte's one-out single in the 10th inning helped the D-backs walk-off the Dodgers, 4-3, on Friday night in the first of a three-game series at Chase Field.
Going about six innings per outing over the course of 33 starts would take a pitcher right to the 200-inning threshold. The Diamondbacks don't have anyone who's ever done it.
Three games into the season, the Arizona Diamondbacks are about what people expected -- a very capable offensive team with a very shaky starting rotation. Arizona's three starters -- Josh Collmenter, Rubby De La Rosa and Jeremy Hellickson -- combined to throw just 14.1 innings, allowing 13 earned runs while striking out 11 and walking five. The San Francisco Giants hit .409 off of them, while they posted a 1-2 record. It's early, yes, and no doubt more will need to be seen from the rotation before anyone thinks of making any changes. But if it gets to that point, one option could be Daniel Hudson.
The errant (and hit-by-) pitches. The dugout-to-dugout chirping. The deposits in the Chase Field pool. The spring training sun spot flare.The Hatfields and McCoys hashed it out. The Diamondbacks-Dodgers feud is no longer, to hear the erstwhile combatants tell it.
Arizona rookie Archie Bradley makes his Major League debut Saturday and all he has to do is beat the defending NL MVP and Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw.
Los Angeles Angels owner Arte Moreno isn't certain Josh Hamilton will play for the team again after his latest relapse into substance abuse.
