D-backs’ Suns Night: Bradley meets Booker, Big Sauce bounces pitch

Diamondbacks pitcher Archie Bradley knows the emotion that Devin Booker felt while trying to silence rowdy opposing fans.

After Bradley’s emotional game against the Los Angeles Dodgers last month, he compared shutting up the pro-Los Angeles crowd to Booker’s big game in Phoenix against the Oklahoma City Thunder last season.

While social media carried word of their mutual respect for one another, the two finally got to publicly meet during the D-backs’ Suns Night on Tuesday.

Bradley also got to mingle with the other Suns players in attendance, including Tyson Chandler, who might challenge the Arizona reliever for best beard among the state’s pro athletes.

Marquese Chriss, Josh Jackson, Tyler Ulis, Alan Williams and Peter Jok also joined head coach Earl Watson at Chase Field.

It wasn’t all good news.

Despite a steady warm-up session, Williams, a Phoenix born-and-raised basketball player, bounced the ceremonial first pitch.
