Haren Ineffective Against Pittsburgh

April 11, 2010 by  

Dan Haren would not pitch like his usual self as he started the game on Saturday against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Haren would give up six runs, five of them earned, including two home runs in the game. The Pirates would score one run in both the first and second innings before scoring three more in the fourth.

The D-backs were unable to get anything going against the pitching of Zach Duke as he would pitch seven innings for the Pirates. In the top of the seventh, Pittsburgh would score one more run as they would lead by a score of six to nothing. In the bottom of the seventh inning, Mark Reynolds would hit a towering two-run blast that would reach Friday’s Front Row. Reynolds’ homer would travel nearly 476 feet into the second deck at Chase Field.

The Diamondbacks would score one more run in the following inning to make the score three to six but were not able to score again for the remainder of the game. Catcher Miguel Montero would leave the game with an injury to his right knee on a single early in the game. He is scheduled to have an MRI but did not claim to have much pain or swelling at the end of the game.

Edwin Jackson will face Daniel McCutchen on Sunday. McCutchen has never faced the Arizona D-backs and Jackson will be seeking his first win for Arizona. McCutchen has also only played in seven games in the majors as the two teams will continue their weekend duel in the desert.
