Not content with clogging up the local roads and restaurants, the snowbirds also came down from the North and beat our baseball team.

The Diamondbacks small-balled their way to a first-inning lead. Jean Segura singled, stole second, and then came around to score on successive groundouts. However, that was it in terms of productive offense for Arizona, who were unable to do much against Aaron Sanchez. They had plenty of opportunities over the course of the night, but went 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position. Segura and Yasmany Tomas had two of the Diamondbacks' six hits, but our usually productive 3-4 punch of Paul Goldschmidt and Jake Lamb combined for a rare 0-for-8.

Zack Godley didn't pitch all that badly. Most of the damage came in a three-run third, where he got the first two outs, then allowed a pair of singles before Edwin Encarnacion launched a bomb to left-field. An unearned  run, courtesy of a bad Godley pickoff, extended the Blue Jays lead in the fifth. Zack allowed four runs (three earned) over his five innings, on six hits and a walk with seven strikeouts. Another missed pickoff and a wild pitch by Dominic Leone led to another unearned run in the ninth, completing the scoring.

imstillhungry95 will be along later, having been defeated by the Triple Play sundae. He will also be changing his name to iwanttothrowup16.
