Snake Bytes 7/30: That Was One Crazy Night

New, comments

The Diamondbacks pounded King Felix to sweep the Seattle Mariners. The Dodgers bought a new team. The Mets made a trade with the Brewers, and then they didn't. Cole Hamels got a new jersey. Matt Holiday may be done for the season - but the Cardinals have already replaced him. Oh and Justin Upton and Matt Kemp were pulled from the game in the sixth inning last night so interim manager Pat Murphy could make a sobering point. And that wasn't all!

It Happened Last Night

Diamondbacks 8, Mariners 2

The Diamondbacks swept the three game series in Seattle as Welington Castillo hit a pair of home runs off of former teammate and Seattle ace, Felix Hernandez. Paul Goldschmidt and David Peralta drove in a pair each. A.J. Pollock had three hits, and Patrick Corbin had another strong outing, going six innings while allowing only one run on three hits and two walks.
