  • @Dbacks • 8h Diamondbacks' bats come alive in win over Giants

    SAN FRANCISCO - Perhaps it was the tension-reducing team meeting in San Diego. Or the mind-clearing off day on Thursday. Or maybe it was an offense that had been too quiet for too long and was bound to explode.

    There were nearly as many theories offered up to explain the Diamondbacks' offensive outburst on Friday night as there were baserunners in their 18-2 win over the San Francisco Giants.

    But in the end, the reasons probably don't matter so much as victory itself, a win that snaps a five-game losing skid and reminds the Diamondbacks that, well, they still know how to play this game.

  • @Dbacks • 10h Diamondbacks designate John Ryan Murphy, plan to give Carson Kelly more time

    SAN FRANCISCO - By designating John Ryan Murphy for assignment on Saturday, the Diamondbacks appear to be moving away from a three-catcher alignment, a decision made easier, manager Torey Lovullo said, by the progress of young catcher Carson Kelly.

    Lovullo said called the decision a "very hard" one to make - Murphy was sent out to clear way for Saturday's starter, right-hander Taylor Clarke - but he said the club felt the time was right to put more on Kelly's plate.

    "I think that's a strong part of this equation," Lovullo said. "More recently we've been more and more impressed with his ability to control the game from behind the plate, control the at-bats.

    AZ Snake Pit: Diamondbacks 18, Giants 2: "They are who we thought they were"


    Record: 26-25. Pace: 83-79. Change on 2017: +1.

    The last time I saw such slaughter on the edge of a cove, it was a documentary about dolphins in Japan. The D-backs offense, which mustered a total of five runs across three games in being swept by San Diego, surpassed that tally by the end of the third. Or in the fourth and fifth innings, your choice. The D-backs reached 17 hits while making 17 outs, scoring in each of the first six innings. I'm still checking the record books, but it might have been the most dominating early performance by Arizona since, as Michael mentioned, Game 6 of the 2001 World Series, where we had 19 hits through five.

  • @Dbacks • 1d 'Big hug, started to cry': Diamondbacks 1B Kevin Cron gets big-league call up news from father

    SAN FRANCISCO - Kevin Cron received the news he had been dreaming about since childhood. Only he never imagined who would be delivering it.

    Cron was called to the big leagues by the Diamondbacks on Thursday, and his dad, Triple-A Reno manager Chris Cron, happened to be the one to tell him.

    "I ran it through my head hundreds of times growing up about how it would happen and none of those hundred ever included my dad being the one to tell me," Kevin Cron said from Oracle Park on Friday, his first day in the major leagues.

    AZ Snake Pit: More on what the Diamondbacks can expect from Kevin Cron

    Kevin's father is Chris Cron, who played two years in the majors and was managing his son on the Reno Aces up until this call-up. Cron is a local boy - at least to some extent. Born in California, he went to Mountain Pointe High School in Ahwatukee, where he played catcher - so, y'know... :) He was a devastating force his senior year in 2011, batting .560 with 27 home-runs, the latter setting an Arizona high-school record at any level, which still stands. He could have been a Seattle Mariner, as he was picked by them in the 3rd round, 75 picks after his big brother C.
