Escobar has 2 HR, 7 RBI, as D supports 11-4 national team

PHOENIX (AP) – Eduardo Escobar hit a three-run homer, two-run homer և raised his career by seven RBIs on Saturday night at 11am. Leading the Arizona Diamondbacks by 4 points over the Washington Nationals.

Escobar opened the scoring in the fourth when he started with a full count from Ross, a two-pointer in the deep right-back seats, which made it 6-2. He added two runs from Austin Watt in the eighth և in the first to start the D-defenders’ score with a two-run single.

“It’s a great week for some people,” said D-back manager Torre Lovullo. “Eduardo was doing his bidding to make it happen on days like this.”

It was a much-needed victory for the D-defenders, who lost 11 to 9, coming on Saturday night and were beaten 17-2 by the nationals. Arizona got a little compensation – now 18-22 years old this season, and the national team went down 15-20.

For the past few weeks, the Diamondbacks have been dealing with the avalanche of injuries, putting three more players on the injury list on Saturday. Escobar’s team was one of the few established major leagues, he, of course, watched the players against the “Nationals”.

“I know this is really difficult now. “A lot of injuries, losing the best players of the team,” said Escobar. “But we are still playing strong, there are a lot of talented young people here.”

Homers was Escobar’s eighth and ninth season. Escobar once again had seven RBIs during his career, as he did in 2019 against the Nationals.

Arizona’s Seth Frankoff threw a 4/2 innings at the start of his first MLB. The 32-year-old right-hander gave two runs with three strokes, four walks and four hits. In the fifth, Washington loaded the bases with two exits, but Alex Young (1-3) eased Francois, hitting Kyle Schwarber in three straight pitches.

Ross (2-3) fought from the beginning, giving four straight shots at the beginning of the game, three runs in the first. He gave up eight races in four laps, his ERA bubble reaching 5.80 seasons.

“Location, location, location,” said Dave Martinez, manager of the Nationals. “It simply came to our notice then. He tried to fight. “

Trea Turner, Josh Harrison և Juan Soto all had two hits for the Nationals. Soto had two RBIs.


D’s followers listed Carson Kelly (fractured left thumb) and JB Bukauskas (right elbow strain) on the 10-day list of injured. They also put right-hander Chris Devenski (right-hand twisted UCL) on the 60-day injury list.

It continues the disappointing series of injuries for Arizona. Five of the team ‘s starting lineups in the spring training session are Kelly, striker Asdrobal Cabrera, first baseman Christian Walker, right-back Kole Calhoun and center-back Ketel Marte.

They dropped two starting pitchers and three sedatives.

“I’s awful,” Kelly said. “You never want to see boys get hurt. It smells like it all happens at the same time. ”

Kelly, 26, was arguably the best defender this season, scoring 338 goals in 28 games in six games. Kelly said she hopes to remove the swelling from her leg and then be able to return after being absent for at least 10 days.

D’s descendants called up striker Domingo Leiba, facilitators Joo Mantip, Joan Lopez from Triple-A in place of Kelly, Bukauskas and Devenski.


“Nationals”. Victor Robles started playing in the center without any problems a day before leaving the game. He kicked the ball in the right thigh.

Diamondbacks. Director Torre Lovullo said Marte (right-right fracture) և RHP Taylor Widener (right-right fracture) is growing հավ will likely return to Triple-A Reno to recover before returning to the club.


The teams conclude the three-game series on Sunday when the Diamondbacks send RHP Luke Weaver (2-3, 5.00) to the hill to face Washington RHP Eric Fedde (2-4, 5.29).
