Josh VanMeter’s clutch 9th inning game-tying bomb strikes his former team and rallies The Dbacks to victory
From the article: “I’d be lying if I said that wasn’t a heck of a ride right there,” VanMeter said. “Like I kind of blacked out for a moment and felt like I kind of floated around the bases. No, that’s a moment that I’ll remember for a long, long time.”
From the article: Relievers Kevin Ginkel and Stefan Crichton worked scoreless eighth and ninth innings, respectively, to nail down the win, which went to fellow reliever J.B. Bukauskas, who retired the only batter he faced in his major league debut.
From the article: “There were a lot of safety issues,” Sims said. “I was concerned about me slipping or something going wrong with the ball. And also my competitors too. If I have no clue where the freaking ball is going, I don’t know the last time I hit a right-hander with a slider.”
From the article: “Because of the short season, we didn’t have urgency, we had more panic,” shortstop Nick Ahmed said. “That hurt guys more than it helped. (This year), we have urgency, guys are digging in and trying to make the necessary adjustments.”
From the article: “Ketel Marte is doing some forward running with a focus on running mechanics,” Lovullo said via Zoom. “It’s a little bit more than what he was doing in the pool. He’s also had his throwing program, he’s taken BP on the field and he’s going to get some live [at-bats] today off of Joakim Soria, who’s going to face hitters for the first time.”
From the article: Long-term, the answer has always been about an over-the-top, direct-to-consumer option, with no blackouts. Or, well, that’s been the answer at least since the cable bundle started disintegrating in favor of streaming apps a decade ago. Fans want to be able to just subscribe to their favorite team’s “Netflix App,” so to speak.
From the article: “Whenever I watch games with my friends and former teammates, I always say that it would be cool if the cameras were rolling and people could listen to our different conversations,” said Sabathia. “I’m excited to test this vision out for fans on MLB Network, especially with the game involving two organizations I’m incredibly familiar with.”
