Glasnow allows 7 runs in third as Pirates fall to Diamondbacks

Dripping blood, Chris Iannetta was taken to a hospital after a 93 miles per hour pitch hit him in the nose and mouth Friday night in Arizona's 11-4 win over the Pirates.

The Arizona Diamondbacks have officially placed catcher Chris Iannetta on their seven-day concussion disabled list, the club announced on Sunday afternoon. Paul Goldschmidt did get the team a run closer in the eighth, with his eighth homer of the year, and Ahmed had his first multi-homer game, going deep with one out in the ninth, but A.J. Pollock popped out, as the winning run, to end the game. Just got in there a little too much, just got away from me.

Appearing in 20 games as a member of the Diamondbacks this season, his first in the desert, the veteran backstop is now batting.220 with three home runs and six RBI alongside a.292 on-base percentage.

Josh Harrison came into the weekend with 36 hits, 14 runs and 12 RBI, while Gregory Polanco managed 28 hits, 13 runs and nine RBI in that span. Harrison and Polanco put up three hits and two runs on Saturday between them. The Diamondbacks won the game 11-4.

Williams (2-2) gave up four hits and one run, on the first of Nick Ahmed's two homers, in five innings.

With a 3-for-5 night, Drury's single, double and home run fell just short of the cycle. He was charged with all seven runs in the third, which tied for the second-most scored in a single inning by a D-backs team against the Pirates.

"We weren't able to sequence like we needed to", Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said of Glasnow.

“Were still trying to drill down to making sure everything is OK, ” Lovullo said. Arizona was in total control by the time Drury belted a towering shot into the left-field seats for a 7-1 lead.

Barbato also maintained that he had no intention of hitting Iannetta. "We didn't game plan very well and he couldn't get out of the inning". While he hung two of the breaking balls, which Andrew McCutchen and David Freese made him pay for, Walker said he executed the game plan and got groundball outs. Bell has six home runs this season to lead the Pirates. "The first four innings, there was someone on, especially in scoring position, and when that happens, you throw stressful pitches and you have to work harder".
