Game Two

Diamondbacks 1, Reds 4

Game two was a historic night for the Diamondbacks. The team retired Randy Johnson‘s 51 in a special ceremony before the game.

When the actual game began, Arizona jumped out to another quick 1-0 lead in the first inning. Unfortunately, that would be all they would get. The Diamondbacks were on the bases often and threatened, but just couldn’t drive the runs in. For Diamondbacks fans, the only exciting on field action was Mark Grace winning the Legends Race.

Robbie Ray got the start for Arizona and he didn’t pitch all that bad. He was effective for the most part despite lasting just six innings. His pitch count was high early on and the Reds got a hold of two mistakes for two homers totaling three runs.

Cincinnati spoiled the fun of the night with three home runs. The Reds scored all of their runs via the long ball. Eugenio Suarez hit a two-run homer, Brandon Phillips and Marlon Byrd both hit solo shots.

Ray’s final line: 6 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 8 K

Winning Pitcher: Keyvius Sampson (1-1)

Losing Pitcher: Robbie Ray (3-7)
