"I think it was kind of exactly what we needed maybe after last night, especially early on we made some stuff happen and that's kind of what we were looking to do at least."
"Top to bottom, everyone not only contributed, but hit some balls really hard, which can be a big boost going into future games."
"I feel like my swing has been there, just a little inconsistent at times."
It Happened Last Night
The Diamondbacks jumped on Stephen Strasburg early and often in game two of the three-game series, including a home run from Ender Inciarte and one of two from Mark Trumbo. Nick Ahmed reached base three times. Tuffy Gosewisch had two more RBI. Chris Owings finished the game a home run short of the cycle. Oh, and Rubby De La Rosa pitched seven full innings. He did allow four runs, but the rest he gave the bullpen was much needed.
Chip Hale tells Dave Burns and John Gambadoro that the team hopes to return to a five-man bench soon. This means the imminent returns of Archie Bradley and Patrick Corbin are going to force a change to the pitching roster.
Despite the recent change in fortunes at the plate, The Diamondbacks and Chip Hale have no immediate plans to alter the current landscape of the middle infield.
