Allen Webster took a no-decision, giving up four runs in 3 2/3 innings, but the Diamondbacks still managed to pull out a 10-6 win against the Dodgers on Monday.
Webster allowed three solo home runs in the fourth inning, proving to be his undoing. Two were back-to-back shots by Andre Ethier and Yasmani Grandal. The third was a tape-measure shot by Joc Pederson. Following that, Webster issued a walk and a single before getting yanked. All told, he gave up five hits, walked four, and struck out three. In four starts, Webster has a 7.11 ERA with a 1.68 WHIP and a 12/14 K/BB ratio over 19 innings. He's due to start at home against the Rockies next.
Nick Ahmed went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and a stolen base in Monday's win against the Dodgers.
Ahmed clubbed a two-run home run to left-center off of Joel Peralta in the fifth inning to put the Diamondbacks on the board. The 25-year-old has struggled as the Diamondbacks' regular shortstop, batting .233/.303/.348 with five home runs, 18 RBI, and four stolen bases.
Yasmany Tomas homered and walked in five trips to the plate Monday as the Diamondbacks took down the Dodgers.
Tomas lined a two-run home run to left field in the sixth inning off of Yimi Garcia. It barely made it over the fence and was reviewed for fan interference, but was ultimately upheld. The power hasn't quite been there as often as the D'Backs would have liked, but Tomas has otherwise done a fine job at the plate in his first year in the majors, batting .314/.357/.440 with four home runs and 29 RBI.
Joc Pederson went 1-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run but the Dodgers were outslugged by the Diamondbacks in Monday's loss.
Pederson hit a tape-measure blast to right-center in the fourth inning off of Allan Webster, one of three solo shots the Dodgers hit in the frame. The rookie is up to 20 home runs on the season along with 38 RBI and a .241/.384/.529 triple-slash line.
Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a walk, a two-run single, and two stolen bases as the Diamondbacks pounded their way to a win over the Dodgers on Monday.
Goldschmidt is now on a 10-game hitting streak, extended with a single in the sixth inning just ahead of a Yasmany Tomas home run. Goldy then ripped a two-run single in the eighth to cap off a four-run frame. He's having a bonkers year, carrying a .352/.467/.637 triple-slash line with 20 home runs, 64 RBI, 15 stolen bases, 55 runs scored, and 60 walks.
Huston Street slammed the door on the Yankees in the ninth inning for his 22nd save as the Angels completed a 4-1 victory on Monday.
Street got Garrett Jones and Brian McCann to fly out for two quick outs, but Didi Gregorius singled to keep hope alive. The ever-dangerous Brett Gardner hit a fly out to end the game. Street is 22-for-25 picking up saves this year with a 2.20 ERA and a 33/9 K/BB ratio in 32 2/3 innings.
C.J. Wilson limited the Yankees to one run in six innings to pick up the win on Monday.
Wilson scattered five hits and a three walks while striking out five. A lot of credit has to go to center fielder Mike Trout, though, as he made a handful of outstanding catches to save Wilson's hide. The lefty lowered his ERA to 3.78 with the effort and has a 1.19 WHIP with an 89/32 K/BB ratio over 102 1/3 innings. He'll face the Rangers in Texas next.
CC Sabathia yielded four runs in 7 1/3 innings in a losing effort against the Angels on Monday.
It was a reasonably solid effort, but the Yankees weren't able to back him with nearly enough run support. Sabathia gave up six hits and a walk while striking out five. Two of the runs came on solo home runs. The lefty holds a disappointing 5.59 ERA with a 1.40 WHIP and an 83/18 K/BB ratio in 95 innings. He'll look to rebound in a home start against the Rays next.
