Yesterday’s free play did not come through victorious, but sometimes even a loss can be critiqued properly. Especially in major league baseball where series are played. As I mentioned yesterday the Diamondbacks have been inept at producing runs as of late.

They got back on track yesterday thanks to sole producer in Paul Goldshmidt, who had two blasts and four RBI’s. His hot start sent the Marlins starting pitcher in Kevin Slowney back to the dugout in the third inning.

The Diamondbacks did have sixteen hits but I need to see more consistency from their offense before I’m sold. Take the under on eight runs today. If the oddsmakers had this more in the 9 to 9.5 range then it would be warranted. But with the Marlins failing to produce runs, and the Diamondbacks inconsistencies they have it right.
