Luke Weaver continues to make the Goldy trade more palatable. Second strong game by a starter for the D-backs that kept the game close to set up some late game heroics. In the bottom of the ninth, David Peralta did what he has done before with a game-tying homer. It was so beautiful and majestic that he had no choice but to admire it. Ketel Marte blooped a single for the game winner that was credited as Duplantier’s first.
Adam Jones has a reputation for making just this sort of play. It was clearly a robbery. Nice plays all day for the D-backs defense today that were all needed to win it.
Some of us have been hoping he could be stretched out to start soon this year. But it is hard to argue he hasn’t been a great bullpen arm.
Apparently, the Padres have quite a farm system with a lot of depth.
Nothing quite like the D-backs winning and the Dodgers losing.
