It was a strange sight after a big hit.
Ketel Marte’s two-out single in the 13th inning led the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night. But DJ Chark Jersey , right after his go-ahead hit, Marte slammed his helmet down in frustration so hard that the sound could be heard all the way to the top of the ballpark. The second baseman was angry about being caught in a rundown to make the final out of the inning.
”I don’t want to get an out in that situation,” Marte said. ”Part of my game is my emotion. I get mad sometimes, but we got the win, so I’m happy.”
Marte’s liner into center field off Tyler Glasnow (1-2) scored Jon Jay from second base as the NL West-leading Diamondbacks won for the fourth time in five games. Jay walked to start the rally, then advanced to second on a two-out wild pitch before Marte followed an intentional walk to David Peralta with his winning hit.
Marte was 0 for 5 when he stepped to the plate.
”He’s such a gifted player and he really grinded through that at-bat,” Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said. ”It wasn’t the perfect day at the plate, but he put that aside and came through with a big hit in the perfect moment.”
Andrew Chafin (1-0) pitched one scoreless inning for the win, getting Josh Harrison to pop out with runners on first and second to end the 12th, and T.J. McFarland notched the first save of his six-year career with a perfect 13th.
The game was scoreless until both teams scored an unearned run in the 11th following a pitcher’s duel between Arizona’s Patrick Corbin and Pittsburgh’s Ivan Nova.
Corbin and Nova were nearly flawless as neither allowed a run and gave up just three hits. Nova pitched eight innings, while Corbin went seven.
Corbin’s 12 strikeouts matched his career high set April 4 against the Los Angeles Dodgers, and the left-hander had a stretch in which he set down 13 hitters in a row between the first and fifth innings. He had allowed a combined 10 runs in 11 1/3 innings in his previous two starts.
”You wish they could all be like that,” Corbin said. ”We had a good game plan, I was making some good pitches and (catcher Jeff Mathis) was calling a lot of good pitches.”
Nova struck out eight and retired his last 12 batters. In three starts since being activated from the disabled list, Nova has permitted only one run in 19 2/3 innings after missing a little more than two weeks with a sprained right ring finger.
”It’s tough, man, because I did my part to give my team a chance to win the game Cooper Kupp Jersey ,” Nova said. ”We had some opportunities to win and we didn’t. When we got the chance, they took it away from us.”
In the top of the 11th, Jake Lamb scored from second base on catcher Elias Diaz’s wild throw. Diaz fielded Marte’s two-out chopper and threw to the foul side of the first-base bag for a two-base error.
The Pirates tied it the bottom of the inning when Lamb, the third baseman, bounced a throw when he tried to force Gregory Polanco at home with the bases loaded and one out on a grounder by Starling Marte.
The error pinned Brad Boxberger with his fourth blown save in 20 chances and second in as many appearances, but he prevented further damage by striking out David Freese and getting Diaz to ground out.
”He created an inning, but he wiggled out of the situation and gave us a chance to win,” Lovullo said.
It was the first time the Pirates had a runner in scoring position since the first inning.
The Diamondbacks got a runner to third base in the third, fifth, ninth and 10th innings, but failed to convert.
Rookie outfielder Austin Meadows had two of the Pirates’ four hits and is 8 for 18 in his last five games, raising his batting average to .347 through 29 games.
Diamondbacks: LHP Robbie Ray (strained right oblique) is scheduled to make his third rehab start Monday, pitching for Triple-A Reno. … RHP Randall Delgado (strained left oblique) made his third rehab appearance for Reno on Thursday night and allowed two runs, one earned, and one hit in 1 2/3 innings with four strikeouts while throwing 34 pitches. He had pitched a combined 2 2/3 scoreless innings in his first two games.
Pirates: C Francisco Cervelli was placed on the seven-day concussion disabled list and C Jacob Stallings recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis. Cervelli left the Pirates’ against the Cubs at Chicago on June 9 in the fourth inning after being struck on the helmet and left side of his jaw by a foul tip off the bat of Jason Heyward. Cervelli passed the concussion protocol and played in six more games, but began feeling symptoms Thursday night late in the Pirates’ 9-3 loss to the Diamondbacks.
Diamondbacks: RHP Zack Greinke (6-5, 3.90 ERA) is 3-1 in four June starts despite a 4.63 ERA and 7-4 with a 4.91 ERA in 12 career starts against the Pirates.
Pirates: RHP Joe Musgrove (2-2 DeAndre Hopkins Jersey , 3.68) is 0-2 with a 6.46 ERA in three starts in June.
LeBron James is keeping his thoughts to himself.
Whatever concerns – or confidence – he might harbor about his Cleveland Cavaliers facing a 2-1 first-round Eastern Conference series hole heading into Game 4 at the Indiana Pacers on Sunday were not going to be made available for public consumption.
James decided not to speak to reporters on Saturday.
And he did not have a whole lot to say in the immediate aftermath of Game 3, either, when Indiana erased a 17-point deficit and then held on for a 92-90 victory over the Cavs.
Not only has the four-time MVP and three-time NBA champ never lost an opening NBA postseason series, going 12-0 in the past, he had never even trailed in the first round until this one, when Cleveland dropped Game 1 at home.
Now he is behind again.
”We’ve had some good quarters,” James said Friday, ”and we didn’t have some good quarters.”
Well, that explains a lot.
Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue’s synopsis?
”They won a game we should have won,” Lue said. ”That’s what’s disappointing. But we’re not discouraged. We’ve got to get Game 4 – and I’m confident.”
In addition to Cavaliers-Pacers on Sunday, the day’s other NBA games are the Boston Celtics at the Milwaukee Bucks, the Golden State Warriors at the San Antonio Spurs, and the Toronto Raptors at the Washington Wizards.
A look at Sunday’s full slate of NBA playoff games:
CELTICS AT BUCKS
Boston leads 2-1. Game 4, 1 p.m. EDT, ABC
NEED TO KNOW: Good as All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo is, the Bucks are getting major contributions from Khris Middleton, who is giving the Celtics headaches with his mid-range jumper and all-around game. Middleton is averaging 26.3 points in the series Cam Newton Jersey , while shooting 62 percent overall, 12 of 19 on 3s. ”For me, it’s about seeing the offense, finding my spots to be aggressive,” Middleton said. ”Just playing in rhythm.”
KEEP AN EYE ON: The first quarter. Veteran forward Al Horford hopes the young Celtics can take lessons from their disastrous start in Game 3 , when Boston was outscored 27-12 in the opening period and never recovered. Boston was flat in front of a raucous road crowd, overwhelmed by an energetic Bucks team that received contributions from up and down the roster. ”This is new for our group,” Horford said. ”We’ll look at film and learn from it.”
PRESSURE IS ON: One of the NBA’s best defensive teams in the regular season, the Celtics have been overrun by the Bucks of late. Milwaukee shot 57 percent in each of the last two games, making a franchise playoff-record 16 3s in Game 3.
INJURY UPDATE: It’s unclear whether Bucks C John Henson will be ready after sitting out Game 3 with a bad back. … Celtics G Marcus Smart will see a doctor again next week to determine when he can return to full-contact practice.
WARRIORS AT SPURS
Golden State leads 3-0. Game 4, 3:30 p.m. EDT, ABC
NEED TO KNOW: Spurs coach Gregg Popovich will sit out a second game in the aftermath of his wife’s death. Assistant Ettore Messina coached San Antonio in Game 3 and will again in Game 4. ”You know how important Pop is, not only for us players, but the whole organization and the whole NBA,” Manu Ginobili said. ”We probably are in a better situation emotionally, and hopefully it fuels us. But it’s hard to tell how a team is going to react.”
KEEP AN EYE ON: Ginobili. The 40-year-old could be playing in his last NBA game. Spurs fans serenaded Ginobili in last season’s Western Conference finale, believing it could be his farewell. It wasn’t. Ginobili says he will wait until the offseason to decide whether to return for a 17th season. ”It was super awkward Ronnie Harrison Jersey ,” Ginobili said. ”I didn’t want to acknowledge it. I didn’t want to ignore it.”
PRESSURE IS ON: Anyone on San Antonio other than LaMarcus Aldridge. The All-Star forward is averaging 22 points in the series, and has been the team’s only consistent scorer. San Antonio needs someone else to step up.
INJURY UPDATE: Golden State is without Stephen Curry and Kawhi Leonard remains out for San Antonio. Both have knee issues. Leonard missed all but nine regular-season games.
RAPTORS AT WIZARDS
Toronto leads 2-1. Game 4, 6 p.m. EDT, TNT
NEED TO KNOW: As long as all the chippiness and on-court chatter that showed up in Game 3 doesn’t lead to any real fights moving forward, this series could be mainly about the two terrific All-Star backcourts, DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry of No. 1 seed Toronto vs. John Wall and Bradley Beal of No. 8 Washington. And each duo has performed much better at home than on the road. Wall and Beal each scored 28 points in a Game 3 win , while the Wizards shot 55.3 percent on field-goal attempts, the third-best playoff showing in franchise history.
KEEP AN EYE ON: Turnovers and bench scoring. Those were two of the Raptors’ strengths in the regular season, but both were huge issues in Game 3, when Toronto’s 19 turnovers led to 28 points for Washington, and the Wizards’ sometimes-unreliable reserve unit outscored their counterparts 35-32. ”We had some turnovers that are just our fault, that we really shouldn’t have – we can’t have,” Toronto reserve Jakob Poeltl said.
PRESSURE IS ON: Otto Porter Jr. As much as the Wizards dominated in a 122-103 victory Friday, they still train in the series and can’t afford to head to Toronto trailing 3-1. So now that Beal has awoken and joined Mohamed Bamba Jersey ,
