Snakes Ambush Cubs at Ramada Field

Sergio Alcantara belted a two-run triple, Daniel Palka ripped an RBI triple, and Jose Munoz laced an RBI double to highlight a five-run 8th, Chuck Taylor doubled, singled twice, stole a base, and scored three runs, and Brad Keller and four relievers combined to throw a three-hit shutout, as the Diamondbacks blanked the Cubs 7-0 in Arizona Instructional League action this morning at Ramada Field at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick Resort east of Scottsdale.

  • Hitting 3 HR, 2 doubles in a game. Never been done in mlb history per Len/Bob.

  • walks? this is baseball, not a nature hike. he needs to get his head in the game.

    in my opinion, he would have been better off hitting 2 homers rather than walking twice. /moneyballs

  • in other news, the site seems to be eating about 50% of my comments...which is probably a good thing in hindsight.

  • The Tucker Barnhart reactions after each Kris Bryant HR are kind of priceless.

  • ...but, he's also good at home runs, too.

    also, rizzo.

  • technically a wp...that said, a good catcher can turn a good amount of wp into blocked balls that don't show up on the stats.

    schwarber, for instance, was really bad at stopping wild pitches because of how stiff he was behind the plate.

  • Was that a wp or pb really? Unbelievable turn-around with this club. 8 runs will not be enough to win this game.

  • 35sb, 2cs...3pb...playing in his 36th start (39th total)...

    miggy is not having a good time behind the plate this season.

  • He hasn't been able to consistently throw his off speed for strikes since the beginning of the season and batters are starting to wait him out. He said this week on the radio that he hasn't had a feel for the off speed stuff all season but he was the same way last season and was better the second part so...hopefully? I'm a bit worried.

    Also I seem to be a bad jinx lately where when I start watching the Cubs start losing and once I stop watching they score runs. So I am sorry everyone.

  • is Arrieta staying in to try and get him the win or because the bullpen has been the sucks?

    Rob G. 1 hour 9 min ago view
  • well duh...

    fwiw, Arrieta is the 2nd easiest pitcher in baseball to steal off of behind Lester.

    *edit* at least for this year, actually Syndergaard is by far the easiest to steal off of (23 SB allowed...now 28 after tonight's game). Lester just 10 so far (no one is getting on-base anyway and Ross has 6 CS for him...and I don't even know if that counts the pick-offs by Ross).  Arrieta with 10 allowed so far ...I think 12 now with tonight's game.
