In a month that has been tough for the Diamondbacks, especially their bullpen, McGough had the chance to shy away from his splitter during a full count. However, he went back to it and managed to strike out Sabol. This critical moment set the stage for the Diamondbacks to secure a 4-3 victory over the Giants, a type of game they’ve struggled with in recent times.
On the day when the Diamondbacks traded for closer Paul Sewald, who will join the team in San Francisco on Tuesday, their beleaguered bullpen played a significant role in the win, even before McGough’s entrance. Manager Torey Lovullo praised the bullpen’s performance, noting their execution and focus on the mound.
The bullpen’s struggles have been a major factor in the Diamondbacks’ challenging month, with a high 6.37 ERA in July before Monday’s game. However, in this game, they stepped up, getting important outs and holding their ground.
While the Diamondbacks had their struggles, they also showed improvements in other areas. Players like Alek Thomas and Ketel Marte made impressive defensive plays, and Corbin Carroll’s baserunning set up a crucial run that tied the game.
Despite some imperfections in their performance, the Diamondbacks will gladly take the win. After finishing the month with an 8-16 record, they are eager for a turnaround and hope to build on this victory to regain their momentum moving forward.
