Snake Bytes: 9/25 - No Spoilage

Some of the Diamondbacks claim they relish this opportunity to play spoiler in the NL West. The thing is, in order to be a spoiler before the last game or two, the team needs to win.

Diamondbacks News

Los Angeles 4, Arizona 2
Humberto Castellanos had one bad inning in the second. Those three runs allowed were all the Dodgers needed, as the Diamondbacks were unable to get anything going against Tony Gonsolin and the Dodgers’ bullpen.

Calhoun Homers in Failed Spoiler Attempt
Kole Calhoun did his best to help lift the Diamondbacks to a win over their division rivals who are currently one game behind the Giants for the division crown. The home run he hit during these 2022 audition at-bats was just not enough.

Pollock Continues to Abuse Diamondbacks
Pollock is now 19-for-38 with three home runs and nine RBI against the Snakes this year.

Cardinals Tie Franchise Record, Win 14th Straight

Giants First to 100 Wins

Fried Does Maddux - Again
That makes two in one season. If not for the otherworldly exploits of Max Scherzer since his trade to the Dodgers, the world would probably be hearing a great deal more about just how damn good Max Fried has been since the break. Friday night, he abused the Padres, the team that drafted him and then traded him for Justin Upton.

Franco Extends On-Base Streak to 40
The Tamps Bay Rays really don’t need any help when it comes to keeping the team relevant through an influx of young talent. So it seems sort of unfair that they now have Wander Franco playing short for them, as he may well unseat Trout in the next two years as the best player in the game.
