Snake Bytes 5/25: Pirates Slip the Noose

New, comments

Through four innings, the Diamondbacks looked to be in control of the game. Then Rubby De La Rosa had a rough fifth inning, helping the Pirates take game two 5-4 in Pittsburgh.

Diamondbacks 4, Pirate 5

The maddening inconsistency that is Rubby De La Rosa was on display last night once again. While De La Rosa looked like the one known as "Good Rubby" was on display through the first four innings, the pitcher known as "Bad Rubby" showed up for the fifth inning. Overall, De La Rosa still looked like an improved pitcher, despite the night’s results, but once again, the Diamondbacks found themselves behind by the time De La Rosa was pulled from the game, having pitched less than five full frames.
