Snake Bytes 6/4: A Big Day in AZ

New, comments

The Diamondbacks traded Mark Trumbo and Vidal Nuño to the Seattle Mariners Wednesday afternoon. Oh, and they also tied the team record for the largest run deficit overcome to win a game buy rallying from a 6-0 second inning hole to beat the Atlanta Braves 9-8, despite an 0-3 day from Paul Goldschmidt.

Quick Quotes


"Proud of the offense for not giving up or not trying to do too much. We were really just out there trying to scratch and claw."

-A.J. Pollock

"It's hard, but you've got to keep the same mindset you came into the game with, which is we're trying to get guys on base and not try to do too much. You can kind of get into a little bit of a trap when you get down that big that early, and I thought we did a really good job. We were satisfied with getting one run in an inning and getting back after it the next inning, and it really paid off late in the game."

-A.J. Pollock

"If Tuffy Gosewisch doesn't go down, then we're probably not having this discussion right now."

-Dave Stewart

It Happened Last Night


Braves 8, Diamondbacks 9

After falling down 6-0 after a frame and a half, things did not look good for the boys from the desert. Some so-so defense and a poor start by Rubby De La Rosa looked like they were going to send Atlanta packing with a series win. Then the Diamondbacks offense woke up - not all at once, but enough. De La Rosa managed to gut out five innings, throwing a zero in the final frame. Ramirez and Chafin then came in and threw up zeros, and the offense continued to peck away. When the Diamondbacks came up in the seventh it was a 7-5 game. Once the inning was over, it was a 7-8 game, and the Diamondbacks never looked back.
