Diamondbacks second baseman Daniel Descalso hit his team’s third inside-the-park home run of the season during Thursday’s 4-0 win over the Astros. It had only been five days since the Diamondbacks’ last inside-the-park home run. As ESPN Stats & Info notes, the Diamondbacks have three as a team, which is amazing because the other 29 teams have hit seven combined.
Thats asinine, Maddon said after Wednesday nights 7-6 victory over the Cincinnati Reds, fuming over the ninth-inning at-bat where Ben Zobrist showed bunt and got drilled by Wandy Peraltas 96-mph fastball. Home plate umpire Ryan Blakney signaled for Zobrist to jog to first base, only to have first base umpire Chris Conroy call strike two.
Jake Lamb gives the Diamondbacks a 3-0 lead over the Astros with a solo home run in the sixth inning.
