Merrill Kelly got the start today for the Diamondbacks, giving up 6 runs, 4 of them earned, in 4+ innings of work.He gave up 8 hits,including doubles to Mookie Betts and Gavin Lux.Among the 6mostly hard hit singles he gave up, even LA starter David Price got a base hit on a sharp line drive single to left.It should be noted that Price is a poster boy for the DH, with only 4 hits in 50 career at bats. Kelly did look a little sharper as the game wore on, but was also victimized by some poor defense. In the second inning with runners on 1st and 2nd with 2 outs Corey Seager lifted a fly ball to centerfield https://www.adfanstore.com/Josh_Reddick_Jersey-90. Trayce Thompson had some trouble picking up the ball, and by the time he did he stuck out his glove one handed and the ball clanked off it for a 2 base error scoring the two unearned runs. In the 3rd inning there was a ball that got between Asdrubal Cabrera and Josh Rojas that looked like one of them should have caught, and three batters later Gavin Lux drove a ball to deep left that David Peralta lost in the sun and was not able to handle as the ball bounced into the wall for a double. In all it was not a great outing for either Merrill or the defense.Asked if it was more location or movement that caused Kelly to get hit hard today Torey saidt hard for me to say, I haven had any chance to look at any of the data?I found that somewhat interesting Noe Ramirez Jersey, as I think from his dugout view he have an idea.Torey felt he threw the ball well and made adjustments and did some damage control, and then cited the defensive lapses.Fortunately after a quietfirst couple of innings against Price, the offense woke up in the 3rd. Merrill Kelly of all people got it started. Despite going 1 for 52 in his rookie season in 2019 Ryan Buchter Jersey, he roped a single to right to lead of the inning. Singles by David Peralta and Nick Ahmed, newly returned to the lineup, loaded the bases with nobody out . Cabrera then poked an 0-2 changeup that got a little too much plate for a bashit, scoring Kelly.Eduardo Escobar hit into a double play, but a run scored and at that point it was 5-2.Stephen Vogt followed with a walk and that ended Price day. In the 4th the Diamondbacks exploded for 4 runs off of Dennis Santana. Trayce Thompson hit a double and Pavin Smith singled, putting two men on. One out later, David Peralta went down and got a slider and lined it out to left for a 3 run homer.Asdrubal Cabrera also homered later in the inning and that made it6 to 5 at that point.Two dingers are better than one.
