Diamondbacks 5, Rockies 1

New, comments

Quite the opposite type of game in this one as Robbie Ray, Andrew Chafin and (gasp) Addison Reed combined to shut down the Rockies in the 2nd game of the doubleheader.

Baseball sure is weird. After both teams exploded with runs in the 1st game, the Diamondbacks and Rockies combined for 6 runs in the finale of the doubleheader. Luckily for the Dbacks, they scored 5 of the 6 to complete the sweep.

Robbie Ray was called up as the 26th man to start the game but was really good, touching 97 mph and flashed a solid slider and change-up. Despite what we may have heard from his prospect reports, his command was great and he looked like he deserved to stay on the MLB roster. He gave up only 5 hits and a run in his 6 innings. Andrew Chafin and Addison Reed followed were even better, combining for 3 innings of scoreless relief.

On offense, Goldy snapped out of his "slump" from the game before and had two hits including a homer to start the scoring. Other contributors include: David Peralta with a 2 rbi double, Chad Cliff Pennington had 2 hits and Tuffy Gosewisch had 3 hits to lead the team to a victory.
