Have yourself a night, Chris Iannetta.
As the Arizona Diamondbacks trailed 9-8 in what had been a back-and-forth contest all night up to that point, the D-backs’ catcher came to the plate with the bases juiced.
Iannetta had already hit a home run earlier in the ballgame and had four RBI on the day. With one out and a full count, Iannetta launched a Dustin McGowan pitch onto the porch in left-center field to make it 12-9 D-backs.
