Pirates right-hander Ivan Nova and D-backs left-hander Robbie Ray have shared a common trait this season: the ability to pitch deep into games. Both pitchers hope that theme continues when Pittsburgh hosts Arizona on Tuesday at 7:05 p.m. ET at PNC Park.
For the second time in four days, D-backs catcher Chris Iannetta delivered a game-tying home run in the ninth. Unlike Friday night in Milwaukee, though, Arizona wasn’t able to turn that moment into a win as Archie Bradley gave up a homer of his own in the bottom of the ninth as the Pirates beat […]

The D-backs did nine innings worth of mashing in the top of the first on Friday night, as they cruised to a 10-1 victory over the Padres at Petco Park. Fourteen Arizona hitters came to the plate in the opening frame, eight of whom scored, in the most prolific road first inning in franchise history.
The D-backs’ top of the first inning started with a soft tapper to third for an infield single and ended 35 minutes later after 14 batters had collected eight runs on six hits, driven Jared Weaver from the game and had Arizona on cruise control toward a 10-1 win over the Padres.
