"It's not just this year, but he did it the last two months of the season last year. He's kind of found a nice little niche down there in the bullpen."
-Mike Harkey on Randall Delgado
Josh Collmenter established control immediately and strengthened his command as the evening progressed Friday, surrendering four hits in his second career shutout to lead the Arizona Diamondbacks past the San Francisco Giants, 9-0.
When they acquired Randall Delgado as part of the Justin Upton trade three years ago, the Diamondbacks hoped they had a pitcher capable of finding a home in the starting rotation. That hasn't worked out, but Delgado is providing value in another way.
Diamondbacks pitcher Archie Bradley missed making history by a couple poor innings. From other pitchers.
The D-backs and Giants continue their four-game series Saturday night at AT&T Park with Arizona's Rubby De La Rosa matching up against San Francisco's Chris Heston.
If Friday's debut proved anything, it's that Kris Bryant can handle third base but wasn't quite ready for James Shields' changeup.
