Snake Bytes 8/16: What Is Going On Here?

There were so many things about last night’s game that simply defied most logic. But, the Snakes won, and that’s almost all that matters.

Diamondbacks News

Arizona 8, Colorado 5
The Diamondbacks chose to throw a bullpen game on Tuesday night. Bryce Jarvis made his debut. Sewald nailed down his third save in four days.

Bryce Jarvis Impresses in Debut
The rookie hurler made 51 pitches, threw 31 for strikes. He completed three innings of relief work, allowing one run on one hit and a walk while striking out three.

Arizona Comes from Behind for Key Win
If the Diamondbacks want to be playing any sort of meaningful ball in September, they need to get things going again. Last night, they managed to come alive just in time to pull off the comeback, despite a number of questionable choices.

A Return to Purple?
There is obviously some bias here, but...

“Purple> Red,” Gallen tweeted. “We should wear these more (permanently lol)”

A few hours later, Gallen followed that tweet up with a poll. Of the 14,653 votes, 91% favored the purple and teal over the Diamondbacks’ current red, black and teal color scheme.
