Hey guys, I'm back. I just had a very busy work week that required me to be working every night from last Monday to yesterday, so I've been out of the loop. Let's see how the Diamondbacks did in my absence..


Oh wow, really? Okay then. Hopefully the Rockies would be the cure for what ailed the Diamondbacks, cause they usually have been. Except it wasn't tonight. Because reasons.

Robbie Ray and Rockies starter Chad Bettis exchanged zeroes for awhile, leading to a lot of awkward silences at the bar they were at, but Ender Incarte singled home Chris Owings in the 3rd to make it 1-0 Diamondbacks. The very next batter, a fella named A.J. Pollock, hit a two-run shot to make it 3-0.

The Rockies got a run off of Ray in the bottom of that inning, when Jose Reyes singled home Charlie Blackmon, who had tripled the previous at-bat, to make it 3-1. That would be the only run that Ray allowed. Spoilers, I know.  David Peralta added on another run in the 5th on a single that scored Paul Goldschmidt to make it 4-1.

For his part, Ray lasted 5 and 2/3 innings, giving up 1 run on 5 hits with 8 Ks and 3 BBs. That'll do fine. Unless it doesn't. Look, I don't know what makes you monsters happy anymore,okay? Randall Delgado came in to get the last out of the 6th and all three outs of the 7th, despite some baserunner related squiffyness.

David Hernandez came on for the 8th, and gave up a leadoff single to Nick Hundley. It could have been much worse the following at bat except A.J. Pollock was like

Hernandez also picked off Hundley (after a replay review) and got out of the inning unscathed. Brad Ziegler came in for the 9th, despite pitching the entire game yesterday (That's what I gathered from the GDT, okay?) It was not great. Daniel Descalso singled, Charlie Blackmon struck out, but Jose Reyes doubled. Nolan Arenado got thiiiiiiis close to a homer, but it was a long single off the top of the fence, but ended up scoring two runs to make it 4-3. After getting Carlos Gonzalez to fly out, a slow roller with an errant throw from Ziggy against D.J. Lemahieu brought it to runners on second and third with two outs. He walked Nick Hundley and that was it for Ziegler.

Pitching Guru Matt Reynolds came into the game to face Ben Paulsen who delievered a walkoff single and well screw this stuff here's the standard bells and whistles I'm going to bed.

Good: Most other people, probably
Bad: Ziegler, that bum
