Polanco's HR thwarts Greinke no-hit bid, Arizona wins 2-1

Adjust Comment Print

Diamondbacks pitcher Zack Greinke threw seven hitless innings before allowing a leadoff home run to Pirates outfielder Gregory Polanco in the eighth.

"Any time you see one of your family members go through something like that, it's pretty traumatic", D-backs manager Torey Lovullo said to the media.

Iannetta was down in the dirt for several minutes with blood dripping off his face.

The D-backs have won each of the first two games of their current four-game set with the Pirates.

There is a history of such incidents between the two teams, but Lovullo said that he does not believe the Pirates were trying to hit Iannetta.

The Diamondbacks' 11-4 win on Friday night was eclipsed by a frightening moment in the seventh inning, when Pittsburgh reliever Johnny Barbato lobbed a 93 m.p.h. fastball that hit Chris Iannetta square in the face. It hit Iannetta at 93 miles per hour. Just got in there a little too much, just got away from me.

Syrian Kurds welcome USA arms, Turkey objects
Mattis, the USA defense secretary, said on May 10 that the United States had had very open discussions with Turkey. It has also voiced concern that weapons given to the YPG would end up in the hands of the PKK.

The Dodgers activated pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu from the 10-day disabled list (hip) for Thursday's start against the Rockies in Coors Field, but the left-handed pitcher looked far from 100 per cent. Ryu allowed 10 runs (five earned) with six walks and a balk as he struggled to make it through four innings of work. His home run highlighted a seven-run third inning.

Back in 2014, Diamondbacks star Paul Goldschmidt was hit by Ernesto Frieri of the Pirates in August and missed the rest of the year with a broken hand. Andrew McCutcheon hit a sharp line drive to right in the first inning, where David Peralta made a diving grab, catching the ball just before it would have hit the ground. The Giants, who have an MLB-worst 12-24 record, lost for the sixth time in seven games and for the 10th time in their last 12.

"He wasn't able to get fastball execution".

The Drury homer knocked starter Tyler Glasnow (1-2) from the game after recording only seven outs. His best year came in 2008, when he posted career highs in home runs (18), RBIs (65) and batting average (.264).

Zack Greinke gets the start as the Diamondbacks welcome the Pirates to Chase Field on Thursday night. He has given up more than two earned runs in a game twice and more than three only once while posting five quality starts, second in the NL.

NOTES: The Pirates added IF David Freese and IF/OF Adam Frazier to the active roster from the disabled list, sending IFs Chris Bostick and Max Moroff to Triple-A Indianapolis.
