D-backs Come From Behind in Extra Innings

May 30, 2009 by  

feat_dbacks_0013Arizona was down early in the third game of their series against the Atlanta Braves and would come back with some late game excitement as they defeat the Tribe in extra innings. Doug Davis would pitch for seven innings, striking out six batters in the Arizona victory as things did not look so hot for him early on. As a result, right hand reliever Tony Pena would get the win.

Atlanta would score first with two runs in the third inning. In the bottom of the sixth, Justin Upton gets into an altercation with catcher David Ross, as Ross accused Upton of “pimping a walk”. The benches and bullpens would clear as the two exchanged words. Nothing further happened as order was restored and play continued. The following inning, Arizona would tie it up.

In the seventh inning, Chris Young would pinch hit to bat in Ryan Roberts to tie the game. As the game went into extra innings, Eric Byrnes would hit a single up the middle with one out to drive in Mark Reynolds to win the game in the bottom of the 11th.
