Anthony DeSclafani was on the wrong end of a 1–0 loss in Arizona on Saturday.
Disco tossed a gem. The only hit he gave up was a triple to Nick Ahmed in the fourth. Jarrod Dyson immediately brought him in with a sac fly.
In fact, Ahmed was Arizona’s baserunner the whole afternoon. Dyson, who was hitting eighth, only had two plate appearances because the Reds faced one over the minimum in eight innings (Arizona didn’t bat in the bottom of the ninth).
Merrill Kelly scattered three hits and two walks over seven and the Diamondbacks’ bullpen threw perfect eighth and ninth innings.
I didn’t realize how good of a season Sonny Gray is having for the Reds. He’s in the first year of a four-year deal with a team option in 2023 and he’s got an ERA+ over 160 despite just a 10–7 record.
He leads the National League starters with 6.3 hits allowed per nine innings.
The Cubs drafted Gray in the 27th round as a high school kid in 2008. He went to Vanderbilt instead of signing. Good decision. He was a first round pick three years later.
Gray has faced the Cubs four times this season. He’s 2–1 with an ERA just under 3.00. The last time out he dominated in a 10–1 Cincinnati win, giving up two hits in six shutout innings.
The Cubs beat up on the Pirates again on Saturday. They’ve outscored Pittsburgh 31–9 in two games and go for the sweep on Sunday.
They still have to fend off the Brewers, who are a game back, but the Cubs are just 1.5 back of the Nats in their own right.
