Inside the Box: D-backs don’t quit

After every Arizona Diamondbacks game we’ll examine the
box score and provide you with instant analysis. So it’s
time to go Inside the Box for April 27, 2011: Diamondbacks 3, Rockies 2

The Good:

Two ninth-inning homers from Gerardo Parra and Chris Young tied the game at two. Considering the D-backs could only scrape by with four hits in the previous eight innings, this was a huge surge of offense at a crucial time. The tie sent the game to extra innings, where the D-backs won it in the eleventh inning.

The Bad:

D-backs starting pitcher Ian Kennedy gave up a hit on the first at-bat in each of the first four innings. In the second and fourth, the Rockies took advantage of the young starter’s apparent nerves to drive in a total of two runs.

The Funky:

In the first inning, the D-backs loaded the bases without getting a single hit. A throwing error, a passed ball and two walks gave the D-backs their best scoring chance of the night.
