Diamondbacks 8, Brewers 3: Godley has strong debut

New, comments

Zack Godley had a great MLB debut, and the offense had their hitting shoes on. What else could you want on National Hot Dog Day?

After some disappointing games against the Marlins, the Diamondbacks had both the offense and the pitching on point tonight.

Zack Godley made his Diamondbacks and MLB debut, and did more than fine. 6 innings pitched, no runs allowed, 7 strikeouts and only 4 hits given up. His 7 strikeouts is tied for most for a Diamondback pitcher making their debut; the other to do it was Max Scherzer. I'm not predicting anything yet, but that's good company to be in.

Arizona hitting didn't waste Godley's effort, putting 8 runs on the board to put the game away and to give fans tacos. Yasmany Tomas started things with a solo homer in the 1st, and then 3 runs were added in the 4th with the assistance of some spotty Brewers defense.

Full recap to follow.
