Arizona Diamondbacks 14, Houston Astros 7

  • If you watched Major League Baseball long enough, you just knew that something had to break eventually for the Arizona Diamondbacks. There is no way that they were as terrible as we had seen to start the season, right Through their first 11 games, they had only scored 29 runs with a differential of -31 and hit a pathetic 2 home runs as a team. Tonight, in spite of my jests before the game, they made an abrupt about-face. Tonight game began with the roof closed scheduled to be opened at the conclusion of the third inning Kole Calhoun Jersey. It was the first time that it would be opened this season and much later in the year than you typically expect it to be provided that there were no fans to keep comfortable. Robbie Ray took the bump facing off against Lance McCullers Jr. Ray was looking to complete five innings for the first time this year. He got through the first inning relatively easy allowing only a two out double to Alex Bregman, but did have two loud outs against him to Starling Marte in center field. That hard contact would carry over into the second and result in damage from the first three batters. Carlos Correa got it started with a double and scored on a single to center field. Left hander Kyle Tucker then took Ray yard to right field to give the Astros an early 3-0 lead Domingo Leyba Jersey. Three more fly outs to the outfield after a mound visit got him out of the inning, but it was obvious that the Astros hitters were on top of him.Meanwhile, Lance McCullers Jr. was perfect through three innings. The Diamondbacks offensive woes continued as they failed to even have a batted ball make it out of the infield let alone fall for a hit. Just like that I was looking forward to turning off the game to tune in to alternate programming. So my go out on a limb prediction is that Hayden and Nicole will be the final two .
