SnakeBytes 5/15: Home Woes Continue

New, comments

Another loss last night moved the Diamondbacks to 5-15 at home, with only the Braves (2-17) worse. The Diamondbacks have yet to win a series at home this year, with the four-game split against the Cardinals the best series performance.

Chris Owings, one of the few offensive bright spots over the last few games, beats out an infield single on Friday.

Last Night's Game

Giants Beat Diamondbacks 5-3 on Posey's Double

Star Wars Night at Chase Field
Picture gallery of costumes. By the way, I rate the game a solid Attack of the Clones. Using the Star Wars scale to rate games this year rarely requires one to use any of the original trilogy, sadly. Maybe RDLR can provide us with A New Hope?

Looking Ahead

De La Rosa Shooting for More Success vs. Giants
Rubby has compiled 17 straight scoreless innings against the Giants, and has also been the Diamondbacks' best starter this year. Matt Cain has struggled. However, given the performances of Samardzija and Peavy, perhaps we should anticipate a continued hibernation of the bats. In Rubby we trust. I'm hoping that my recap of a game that attempts to avoid a sweep goes a bit better than last time.
