He put on his catching gear and took it off a couple of times as well Adrian Beltre Jersey , waiting for double switches that never happened while the game stretched well past midnight.When Kelly finally got to make his debut for the Arizona Diamondbacks, he came through with a hit that stopped a marathon.Kelly delivered a pinch-hit RBI double in the 13th inning, and the Diamondbacks won the longest regular-season game in Dodger Stadium history, 5-4 over Los Angeles.The 6-hour, 5-minute game ended early Saturday morning shortly after Kelly came through in his first at-bat since joining the Diamondbacks in the trade that sent franchise cornerstone Paul Goldschmidt to St. Louis.Kelly is one of three catchers on the Arizona roster, and since he didn’t get one of the season’s first two starts behind the plate, the defensive specialist was eager to contribute elsewhere.After Nick Ahmed drew a two-out walk and stole second in the 13th, Kelly got jammed on a pitch by Yimi Garcia (0-1), but still muscled his 19th career hit just inside the right field line.“It was a great feeling,” Kelly said. “I’ve had lots of moments like that before, but this one was pretty special. We kept battling. We showed a lot of heart. We had adversity, but we battled through it.”Pinch-hitter Christian Walker hit a tying three-run homer in the seventh for Arizona. One day after giving up a franchise-record eight homers in a blowout loss on opening day, the Diamondbacks demonstrated their resilience.“I am so proud of these guys because of the fight we had,” manager Torey Lovullo said. “We got beat pretty good yesterday, and they fought all day long to win this game.”Matt Andriese (1-0) walked four and escaped several jams during 2 1/3 innings of hitless relief for Arizona. Greg Holland pitched the 13th for his first save.A.J. Pollock kicked off a four-hit performance against his former teammates with the Dodgers‘ only homer way back in the second inning, but Los Angeles blew two late leads and went scoreless in the final six innings of the team’s longest regular-season home game.“We had some opportunities late, six innings on the back end, and we couldn’t cash in Nolan Ryan Jersey ,” Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts said. “They got a couple of big hits when they needed them.”Corey Seager celebrated his second game back from Tommy John surgery with a tiebreaking RBI single in the seventh, but Arizona tied it again in the eighth when Ketel Marte beat out his potential double-play groundout with the bases loaded, allowing David Peralta to score.Los Angeles loaded the bases for Pollock with a two-out rally in the 10th, but Andriese made a spectacular behind-the-back stop of Pollock’s hot comebacker to end the rally.Ross Stripling pitched scoreless three-hit ball into the sixth for the Dodgers. Ray struck out nine over five innings for Arizona, but also walked five and left with a deficit when he couldn’t retire Pollock, who reached base three times.Home plate umpire Scott Barry left the game before the 12th inning. He was hit squarely in the mask by a fastball from Matt Andriese during the 10th.AJ’S TURNPollock drove in three runs and reached base five times in his second game for the Dodgers after seven seasons with Arizona. Pollock didn’t hit any of the Dodgers’ opening day-record eight homers Thursday, but he mashed a hanging slider from Robbie Ray in the second Friday. Pollock then drove a two-run single to center in the third, and he delivered a two-out double in the seventh before Seager brought him home.LONGEST TIMESThe game was longer than the 5-hour, 42-minute epic played by the Dodgers and Mets over 19 innings on May 24, 1973. It wasn’t the longest game ever in Chavez Ravine, of course: That dubious honor still belongs to the 18-inning, 7-hour and 20-minute epic played by the Dodgers and Red Sox in Game 3 of the World Series last October.KELLY’S COLLAPSEThe Dodgers were up 3-0 and apparently cruising when they brought in new reliever Joe Kelly to face Walker, who hit his second homer in two games. Kelly, the former Boston reliever, made an inauspicious debut with the Dodgers, who gave him a $25 million, three-year deal. He gave up two more hits and another tying run in Arizona’s eighth-inning rally.RUSS RETURNSRussell Martin reached base five times in his first game since 2010 for the Dodgers, who reacquired the veteran catcher in the offseason. He walked and reached second in the 12th Rougned Odor Jersey , but the inning ended when pinch-hitter — and opening day winning pitcher — Hyun-Jin Ryu barely failed to beat out a grounder to short.TRAINER’S ROOMDiamondbacks: 1B Jake Lamb made his season debut, going 1 for 5. Lamb had back tightness during the spring, forcing the Diamondbacks to postpone their plan to prepare Lamb to play third base more often to get Walker’s big bat in the lineup at first base.Dodgers: Clayton Kershaw will throw a three-inning simulated game Saturday in his latest step back from shoulder inflammation. The ace is likely to make at least one minor league start before returning, Roberts said.UP NEXTArizona’s Zack Godley takes the mound in search of his first victory at Dodger Stadium, where he is winless in five career appearances. He faces Kenta Maeda, who is back in the Dodgers’ rotation for now after dominating as a reliever last season and following up with a strong spring.

CDTShareTweetShareShare2019 Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 4Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY SportsThere is nothing quite as zesty in modern baseball than an off day following three disappointing games. On Saturday and Sunday, the Cubs were unable to hold bullpen leads late and then Monday’s game was a comedy of errors. After an offseason that thoroughly disappointed much of Cubs fandom, this was in every conceivable way, a terrible start to the season. Already, I’m seeing the calls for firing Joe Maddon. I guess I can see where that sentiment comes from. But I’m certainly one who is blinded by the 387 wins, four post season appearances, two division crowns and one World Series championship he’s won in his four seasons as a Cub Manager. Further, I’m not sure how this is his fault. He was handed this team. I’m not of the impression that Mark Zagunis being on the team and starting against leftys is a rogue decision. I’m not sure that using Carl Edwards Jr. in the eighth inning, with this group of relievers, is an off-the-wall decision. Joe is managing the team he was handed. Yu Darvish flat out failed to get the job done in Saturday’s game. Jose Quintana was a smart decision. He got shelled in two appearances against the Braves last year and dominated the Brewers. As the fifth starter, it made total sense for him to not start until the Brewers series and thus be available out of the pen if the pen was needed early in one of the games in Texas. On Sunday, the strike zone was garbage (for both teams). On Monday , the team made six errors for the first time in more than a decade. The game was torpedoed essentially before it even got started with a tragedy of errors in the first inning. A 1-3 start is always going to loom 10 times larger than the 1-3 stretch every team will have in June or July or August when even the best of teams wears down with the rigors of the season. It’s further magnified when the team you are chasing starts out 4-1. It’s magnified even further when your fan base by and large that you didn’t make the right moves in the off season. Of course, this is all magnified because we are Cubs fans. For those of us who’s fandom goes back more than five years, we have an ingrained history of everything eventually going bad. I think the average Cub fan sees the baseball world like late fall. They stare at the trees and they are waiting for the leaves to brown, the grass to stop growing and everything to die off for the winter.It doesn’t have to be that way. This could just be a 1-3 stretch. This team can come together. Another 90 plus win season is still there for the taking. I won’t research history. I won’t look at last year’s Dodgers team that reached the World Series after having been nine games out of first during the season. I won’t see how bad their record was and how strong they finished. Because I know baseball history is littered with those teams. I will point to slow starts for the Yankees, Red Sox and Astros though. Baseball is hard. It’s extra hard in March and April. When every team believes they can be that special team that defies expectations and makes a surprising run. Somewhere between 10 and 20 of the teams in Major League Baseball are flat out pretenders. They have no real shot at all of winning a championship and many of them have no shot at all of reaching the post season. But they don’t accept it yet. The Texas Rangers believe they can be a surprise team. The Braves certainly don’t think they are a pretender coming off of a National League East crown. It’s going to get better. I don’t know if better will start on Wednesday or Thursday or this weekend. But better times are ahead. You can of course lose a division title in April with a terrible start, but you can’t win one. The Brewers have a bit of a lead on the Cubs already. Certainly, when you figured that the edge between the two teams would be very small, you hate to give them a head start. But they gave us one last year, worked things out, and then ran us down. It can be done.With that, we turn our attention to yesterday’s game as we look at what WPA had to say about Heroes and Goats. As always the Heroes and Goats are determined by WPA (Win Probability Added — here’s a good explanation of how WPA works) and are not in any way subjective. Many days WPA will not tell the story of what happened, but often it can give at least a glimpse to who rose to the occasion in a high leverage moment or who didn’t get the job done in that moment. Also note, for the purposes of Heroes and Goats, we ignore the results of pitchers while they are batting and hitters while they are pitching. With that, we get to the results.Game 4, April 1: Cubs 0 at Braves 8 (1-3)Source: FanGraphsThree Heroes: Superhero: Willson Contreras (.049). Willson drew two walks in four plate appearances and that was good for the top spot on a day when there weren’t a lot of positive contributions.Hero: Kris Bryant (.036). The Cubs did have nine hits and drew four walks in this one, despite the scoreless effort. Kris had one of each in his four plate appearances.Sidekick: Brandon Kintzler (.004). The start of this season has been so bad that I’m not assuming anything bad or good is real. But, Kintzler does have two scoreless outings for what that’s worth. Last night Russell Wilson Jersey , it was two strike outs of the only two batters he faced.Three Goats:Billy Goat: Kyle Hendricks (-.326). To be sure, Kyle was far from sharp last night. As has been the case the past few Aprils, his velocity was down. When his velocity is down, he has a tendency to get hit hard. Kyle’s results have always improved as the season wears on. So last night’s result didn’t shock me even a little. Not Kyle’s part anyway. The failings of the defense did. 4 1鈦? innings, 10 hits (including one that should really be classified as a team error for a ball that landed between three fielders and should have been caught), three walks and two earned runs. The Cubs significantly lowered their team ERA in a game they lost 8-0. Goat: Jason Heyward (-.071). Jason did have one hit in four at bats. But he hit into a costly double play when the outcome of this game was still in doubt.Kid: Mark Zagunis (-.047). With people already angsty that Kyle Schwarber was sitting, it doesn’t help that Zagunis and Heyward both contributed to the loss. On the bright side, Mark did have a pair of doubles in four at bats. WPA Play of the Game: With two outs and runners on second and third in the first inning, the Braves were leading 2-0. Brian McCann was at the plate. He singled scoring two runs. (.114)*Cubs Play of the Game: David Bote batted with a runner on first and no outs in the second inning. The Cubs were trailing 4-0. He singled and the Cubs were in business (.047). Cumulative Top 3/Bottom 3:Javier Baez 5Kyle Schwarber 3Daniel Descalso 3Four players with -3Up Next: The Cubs have a Tuesday off day ahead of five straight games to end this opening road trip (and a sixth to start next week at home). The Cubs will send Jon Lester to the mound Wednesday. Hey, the Cubs are 1-0 when Jon starts (with a +8 run differential!). Jon allowed two runs over six innings of work on opening day. In his career, he has made nine starts against the Braves. In those starts he is 6-2 with a 2.47 ERA. To be fair, some of those positive results were against a much less talented offensive team than this current group of Braves. The Braves will counter with Julio Teheran. Julio lost his only start and has a 5.40 ERA so far on the young season. Julio has had good results against the Cubs as well. He’s made eight starts against the Cubs and he is 3-1 with a 3.44 ERA over that time. This Cubs core has been together much longer than that of the Braves, so much of Teheran’s results are against current Cubs. So this should be a tough matchup. Perhaps the first low scoring game of the Cubs season?
