Bumgarner, Smith and Kelly failed where a rookie starter succeeded. It isn’t all lost, people. Taylor Widener brings back the sun in our lives.
Check out our own recap for post-game audios.
Soria was just like Clippard one of few to get a guaranteed MLB contract with the D-Backs this offseason. Just like Clippard he might go to the IL after suffering an apparent calf injury.
He went hitless in his first at bats as a starter, although he did reach base on a fielders choice. We saw a defensive gem but also his first (rookie) error. Perdomo still has lots to learn but a lot to offer as well.

Why does the forkball drop? A team of researchers in Japan, including those at Tokyo Institute of Technology, announced that they have revealed through supercomputer simulations that the “negative Magnus effect” exerts a downward force on the ball.
I play the MLB Perfect Inning mobile video game of this company, which is by far the best mobile baseball game there is when it comes to gameplay and graphics, but their KBO version is said to be even better.
