Workman, a Farrell favorite, has ascended into a higher-leverage role, notwithstanding his allowing a ninth-inning leadoff double to Brandon Guyer, who scored from second base when first baseman Brock Holt threw away Roberto Perez's sacrifice bunt. One out later, Pollock sent a fastball from Eric Goeddel (0-1) over the center field fence to put the Diamondbacks back in front after they squandered a 1-0 lead in the seventh.
Following him off the field was first baseman Carlos Santana, who left prior to the start of the eighth inning with lower-back tightness. I hope it's not something that holds me back. But it's fair to wonder why didn't Farrell go to Reed, who was acquired from the Mets at the trade deadline for such situations, and instead turned to Barnes, who is clearly a different pitcher on the road than he is in the friendly confines of Fenway Park. "His defense is unbelievable". The hope is that the team is able to get healthy and make a full strength postseason run.
"Man, that was a great catch".
"I wasn't doing us any favors", he said. But, the knowledge that the team is capable of winning games against the best competition in Major League Baseball without being full strength is valuable too. "That's kind of what we've come to expect from him". "You go back, you look at video". "There was a lot of things that were happening, a lot of breaks".
In the top of the fifth inning, Betts led off with a walk and Benintendi fouled out for the first out.
The Openly Gay Xena Reboot Has Been Killed
The original Xena series, a spinoff of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys , ran from 1995 to 2001 and lasted six seasons. The Xena: Warrior Princess reboot which would have made the title character explicitly gay is not happening.
J.D. Martinez had an RBI single and left fielder David Peralta threw out the potential go-ahead run at the plate for the Diamondbacks, who lead Milwaukee by 3½ games for the second NL wild card.
NY - A.J. Pollock hit a two-run homer in the 10th inning and Arizona snapped a three-game skid.
Doubled up: Dan Otero's Houdini act in the seventh inning was aided by a nice 6-4-3 double play from Francisco Lindor and Ramirez.
The official word from the Indians was Miller re-aggravated his right knee patellar tendonitis, but the team has not yet indicated if it will require a trip to the DL or not.
"On a night when other guys are unavailable, this is the guy that's got the most experience and has done a good job in that role", Farrell said. He snagged a line drive off the bat of Eduardo Nunez for the first out of the inning, and prevented a run from scoring by grabbing a Rafael Devers shot with two on and two out later in the inning.
