Arizona Diamondbacks v Chicago Cubs

Kevin Gregg had pitched on four consecutive days going in to the Cubs’ Sunday afternoon game versus the Mets. With his regular closer slated for a day off, Dale Sveum summoned Carlos Marmol to close out the Mets with a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the ninth inning. When the game was over, Marmol’s line would read as follows: 0.1 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 1 BB, 2 HR.

Marmol surrendered a three-run walkoff blast to Kris Nieuwenhuis to cap this most Marmolian blown save.

Last night’s game between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Dodgers got ugly after after Ian Kennedy threw at Zack Greinke’s head in the seventh inning, causing both benches to empty.

It was a HBP-filled evening. Cody Ross was hit by a pitch earlier in the game, then Yasiel Puig took one off the face, which led to Greinke planting one between Miguel Montero’s numbers… to which Kennedy would retaliate in the most idiotic of manner by throwing at Greinke’s melon.

SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game

It’s Gerrit Cole day in Pittsburgh. For those Bucs fans and prospect porn addicts who had hoped this would be some sort of grandiose affair, sorry to disappoint you. The 2011 first overall pick’s Major League debut has a rather ordinary feeling about it as the hour draws nearer.

Cole’s arrival in Pittsburgh is a timely one, though. With Wandy Rodriguez‘s health status currently up in the air, and Cole having already been held down long enough to ensure he’s under team control for an extra year, it’s an opportune moment to run out the franchise’s top prospect. As far as Super Two status is concerned, the 22-year old would accrue a tick over two years of service at the completion of the 2015 season if he were to remain with the club moving forward. At this point, though, it won’t matter much if he can step in and help the 37-26 Pirates.

A fan in San Diego lept into some shrubbery in pursuit of Jason Heyward’s second home run ball of the night. This is by no means an effective souvenir retrieval method, but hell, it will sure as shit get you a look on SportsCenter.

San Diego Padres v Colorado Rockies

Edgmer Escalona and the Colorado Rockies had themselves a bizarre top half of the seventh inning on Sunday versus the San Diego Padres. It was the kind of appearance that Escalona would probably like to forget. He entered the game in relief of Juan Nicasio. The right-hander came in to protect a 4-2 Rockies lead, following six effective innings from Nicasio.
