Hinch Debuts with a Loss Against D.C.

May 9, 2009 by  

azhb_default_articleThe D-backs are looking to turn over a new leaf with their new manager A.J. Hinch. In his first game since the departure of Bob Melvin, the D-backs would drop the game to the worst team in the Major Leagues. The Washington Nationals would come into Chase Field with an 8-18 record and would leave the field with a victory.

The Nationals would hit a couple home runs in their 5-4 victory while the Diamondbacks fought valiantly with their own bats. The D-backs contributed with three doubles and a triple from the plate but it was not enough to combat the Nationals. Former D-back Adam Dunn would hit one of the D.C. home runs and receive some heavy booing while he rounded the bases. Additionally, in case you missed it, a fan would throw the ball back on the field from the right field bleachers. Not only did the fan throw it back but they threw it to the infield. Sign them up!

Although the loss to the Nationals and the debut of Hinch was lackluster, there appeared to be some additional motivation on the team. It appeared that there was a greater sense of urgency with the players. Also, Hinch argued a call that some may argue that Melvin would have let slide. Saturday is the second game of the three game weekend series.
