Found July 14, 2013 on Baseball Hot Corner:
Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Kyle Lohse benefited from a stray pigeon flying in front of Arizona Diamondbacks batter A.J. Pollock. You can see the reaction from Pollock as he is obviously distracted by the feathered intruder. A called strike. The post Kyle Lohse Utilizes A Pigeon For A Strike On A.J.

Corbin caps dominant first half with dominant win

PHOENIX -- There could hardly have been a better way for Diamondbacks left-hander Patrick Corbin to warm up for his first All-Star appearance. Corbin overcame a wild first inning Friday night to shut down the Brewers in a 2-1 win before he heads to New York, where he'll pitch for the NL All-Star Team after an improbable and stellar first half. "I just wanted to finish...

D-backs look to stay hot against Lohse, Brewers

Earlier in the year, losses were piling up for Kyle Lohse. Now, he's working on another long unbeaten streak. The Brewers hope Lohse can extend that run while winning his third straight start Saturday night against the Diamondbacks at Chase Field. Lohse (5-6, 3.47 ERA) is 4-0 with a 2.37 ERA in his last eight starts and hasn't lost since an 8-6 defeat at Minnesota on May...

Despite rough first half, Ian Kennedy still heads rotation

It’s no secret that Ian Kennedy has struggled in the first half, carrying a 5.42 ERA, good for second worst among National League starters, into the All-Star break. But following his loss on Sunday to the Brewers, manager Kirk Gibson was asked about the rotation’s order heading into the second half. Per Arizona Sports 620′s Kyndra de St. Aubin, Gibson will use Kennedy in the...

Brewers' first-half struggles allow Wily Peralta's development

There haven't been too many positives for the Milwaukee Brewers this season, as the Brewers were going to go into the All-Star break with one of their worst first-half records in a decade. The development of Wily Peralta is becoming one of the more positive things to come in the last month, as the young right-hander continued his roll with seven strong innings Sunday in Milwaukee...

Another lackluster outing for D-backs' struggling Kennedy

PHOENIX -- When Kirk Gibson makes a mound visit, it usually is to make a pitching change. This one was to make a point. Strongly. Gibson looked Ian Kennedy in the eye and delivered a message that lip readers might not want to pass along to their children when he went out in the second inning Sunday, after Kennedy had permitted seven of the Brewers' first 12 batters to reach...

Late D-backs rally leaves Brewers deflated

Another day and yet another tough loss for the Milwaukee Brewers, as Saturday's 5-4 loss was just as frustrating as the previous two in Phoenix. With Kyle Lohse cruising, a three-run sixth inning had the Brewers feeling good about themselves, but the wheels fell off in the seventh inning. After getting Paul Goldschmidt to fly out to start the seventh, Lohse surrendered his...

Corbin dominant, bullpen comes through in D-Backs win

Return of the Mac: Brandon McCarthy nears recovery from shoulder inflammation

The long road back to the mound for Brandon McCarthy, appears to finally have an end in sight. The lanky right-hander will report to Triple-A Reno this weekend, to make the first of at least two projected rehab starts after being out of action since May 31st, with shoulder inflammation. After successfully completing a 65-pitch simulated game on Sunday, the next step on the agenda...

Buy Low Candidate: Ian Kennedy

The former 21 game winner has definitely had a roller coaster of a first half. After another disappointing outing against Milwaukee yesterday, he is 3-6 with a 5.42 ERA. Typically selected somewhere between rounds 10-12 in drafts during the preseason, Kennedy's numbers are just unacceptable to this point. Control, or lack thereof, is the main issue of concern. So far, his BB...

D-backs follow script with another comeback

PHOENIX -- The Diamondbacks have beaten the Brewers this weekend they way they have worked their way to the top of the NL West this season -- with a twist. As has happened, they fell behind early. They rallied. And, new to this series, they navigated the final innings with a situational bullpen that has adapted well. The result: a 5-4 victory at Chase Field that supplied further...
