We had a pitching duel with the Arizona Diamond Backs today in the last of a three game series thanks to Madbum on the mound for us up against Kennedy.
We drew first blood in the 7th to take a 1-0 lead
In the 8th inning Marco Scutaro who lead off the 6th with a double committed an error and one thing lead to another D-Backs tied it up 1-1.
Mijares comes in and gives up the go ahead run in the bottom of the 8th and we call in Sergio to get us out of the inning. He does and we go into the 9th behind by a run.
Well no surprise we weren’t ready to call it a game and Brandon Crawford ‘hero’s up’ with a home run to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth 2-2.
We go to the 10th inning and Chad Gaudin comes in to pitch Buster goes behind the plate. Gaudin get fist batter out, walks second, line drive and D-Backs have runners on 2nd & 3rd.
In the middle of our intentional walk to Montero-time out so that Lopez can get ready. Finish the walk with Lopez coming in-bases loaded.
D-backs score go to bottom 10th 3-2 bad guys
Bottom 9th, 2 outs Brandon Belt knows what to do, he hits one way out not all the way out however now we have a runner in scoring position and we are on our feet. Arias comes up-anything can happen!
And it doesn’t. Arias grounds out and we lose but what a ride!
