Another SnakePitFest, another defeat...

MLB: Colorado Rockies at Arizona Diamondbacks Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

If, as many expect, this was Patrick Corbin's last start at Chase Field as a Diamondback... it was thoroughly underwhelming. Corbin had trouble throwing strikes, and only lasted three innings, needing 82 pitches before being lifted for a pinch-hitter. Corbin allowed four runs, all in that third, on a total of five hits and four walks, with five strikeouts. However, the bullpen was solid, led by two scoreless innings from Randall Delgado, until a bases loaded walk by Brad Boxberger in the ninth.

The offense was more of the issue, the D-backs being not just shut out, but perfecto'd until A.J. Pollock's homerun in the fifth. There was precious little more to cheer about beyond that, and we instead spent our energy on heckling those trying to start a wave.

Turambar will be along with the full recap, eventually. That'll be interesting, since I think he bailed in about the fifth inning! In hindsight, he probably got the best of it. I should probably have stayed in the Cornish Pasty Company myself.
