Diamondbacks News:

Re-cap: The Diamondbacks ran wild all over the Dodger’s rookie pitcher to take game 3 and the series win against Dodger evil. Taylor Clarke pitched though 5 innings only allowing 2 runs. Jarrod Dyson now leads MLB in stolen bases with 19 taken on 21 attempts.

Can the D-backs be more than perfectly mediocre this season?

“We’ve had some really hot moments and some really cold moments,” manager Torey Lovullo said after Wednesday’s 8-2 victory over the Dodgers. “Maybe that’s some of our youthfulness, I don’t know. Every once in awhile, things linger longer than I like.”

“Before that start in D.C. we thought he was starting to get on a pretty good roll, incorporating his change-up more. We feel at this point Archie can still help us win games up here and we don’t see a need to consider sending him anywhere else.”

“Chase Field is one of the biggest MLB stadiums,” said 2018 DRL Champion Paul “Nurk” Nurkkala. “You don’t really get a sense of the scale of this place until you’re inside it. Thinking about that and thinking about the kinds of courses that we could have is going to be awesome.”

Around Baseball:

Orioles break an MLB record for most home runs surrendered and the season isn’t half way over yet.

The San Diego Padres hit five homers Wednesday in a 10-5 victory over the Orioles – marking the 10th time this year O’s pitchers have yielded five or more home runs in a game.

Earlier this month, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred, reacting to the incident in Houston, said he did not expect teams to make changes to the netting around ballparks during the season, but said he expected conversations to continue about whether the netting should be extended.
