Today’s Lineup

Press Dining

  • Finally, some breakfast food! These 1:05 pm games are generally oriented around lunch (despite the Snack Shack being open as early as 10:30 am, see below) so it was exciting to see the kitchen staff finally mix it up. I have to admit that the overall meal was somewhat hard to enjoy considering the ridiculous heat at Oracle Park.
  • The burrito was great, both the taste and structural integrity of the wrapping held up to high standards. I had to switch over to the Dippin Dots sooner than I expected in an effort to prevent them from melting. It was the first time I was trying the Cookies ‘n Cream flavor at Oracle Park and I was not disappointed. The Oreo cookie crumble bits were a nice surprise and the cold ice cream was really refreshing. The second half of the burrito was a little soggier than the first, but nothing major. While the fresh fruit was basic, I still wish there was more of it.

Live Game Notes

  • Top 1st -RHP Johnny Cueto
    • Summary: Cueto bounces back after allowing four hard-hit balls to the first four batters. Locastro’s first career leadoff HR gives the D-backs the early lead as he’s the first player to hit a leadoff HR off Cueto since June 26, 2015.
    • Live Play-by-Play: Locastro HR, Calhoun 1B, Peralta 1B (Calhoun to 3rd), Escobar K, F8 (sac fly, scores Calhoun), Vogt K
    • Score: Diamondbacks 2, Giants 0
  • Bottom 1st – LHP Alex Young
    • Escobar missed a pop up in foul territory (E5) which gave Yaz another pitch to work with. Men on the corners and no outs, Longoria grounds into a double play.
    • Slater 6-3, Solano 2B, Yaz 1B (Solano to 2nd), Longoria 6-4-3 DP
    • ARI 2, SF 0

    • Ahmed F8, Lamb K, Jay F8
    • ARI 2, SF 0
  • Bottom 2nd
    • Ruf builds off yesterday’s momentum (moonshot off MadBum) with a loud double, but nothing comes about it.
    • Flores F7, Ruf 2B, Roberton F9, Dubon 3-1
    • ARI, 2, SF 0
  • Top 3rd
    • Another three up three down for Cueto. Also, Oracle Park seems excessively smokey and Darin Ruf’s double from the last inning is actually a single.
    • Locastro F9, Calhoun 5-3, Peralta K
    • ARI 2, SF 0
  • Bottom 3rd
    • Tromp’s solo shot off an 81 mph curveball puts the Giants on the board and Donnie Barrels with another good piece of hitting.
    • Tromp HR, Slater F9, Solano 1B
    • ARI 2, SF 1

    • Young with just 11 pitches this inning (3 pitch K against Ruf
    • Longoria K, Flores fly out, Ruf K
    • ARI 2, SF 1
  • Top 5th
    • Calhoun walked on 4 straight pitches (none were fastballs) and there was a fun play at the plate with Locastro’s bunt. Cueto comes up big with the K on Peralta to end the inning.
    • Ahmed 1B, Lamb 1B (Ahmed to third), Jay 5F, Locastro FC bunt (Ahmed out at home), Calhoun BB, Peralta K
  • Bottom 5th
    • Nothing too exciting, Roberton accidentally threw his bat during his strikeout.
    • Robertson K, Dubon F9, Tromp 6-3

    • Baragar replaces Cueto after he walks Lamb to walks the bases. Baragar goes to 3-2 with Jay but gets him to fly out to Ruf who makes a sliding catch in left to prevent any runs.
