Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Barry Enright had a great attitude when being demoted at the end of April to work on his game, unlike another starting pitcher who found his way to Reno this season. Unfortunately, his return to the majors is probably going to be a very short one. He lasted only 3 innings tonight, giving up 4 homers. That’s right, 4 of them. Currently the Dbacks trail 9-3 in the bottom of the 6th at post time.
Zach Duke, the lesser of two evils, came in and pitched decently, giving up 3 runs, but really those runs were all inherited by Yhency Brazoban and all he did was walk a batter, hit a batter, and walk a third batter. Thanks for coming out boys. Micah Owings was able to get out of a bases loaded jam with no one out. Don’t be surprised if he gets another chance to start.
For Enright though, say goodbye. It didn’t work. Nice guy, great heart, not enough talent. Right now, the Dbacks need all three if they are to continue to compete for the NL West crown. Should be interesting how long before Enright is either released or sent back packing for Reno.
