Seven runs in the sixth propel Dbacks to win over Cubs

CAIRNS, SK – Things were looking bleak. After one pitch, the Cubs had a runner on first care of a bunt single. After two more pitches, the Saskatoon Diamondbacks starting pitcher, Emmett Graham, left the game with a sore arm. Following an abbreviated warm up, Connor Coverett, stepped in to take Graham’s place.

After allowing the Cubs leadoff runner to reach third, Garrett Krawchuk threw a dart from centre field cutting the Cubs runner down at home and getting things going for the Dbacks. In the bottom of the second, Ethan Godson crushed a three run dinger over the left field wall to give the Dbacks a three run lead. This lead would hold up until the top of the fifth, when the Cubs tied it up with three runs of their own. The Dbacks added an insurance run in the bottom of the fifth and were looking for insurance runs in the bottom of the 6th when the bottom fell out for the Cubs. With bases loaded and two outs Nolan Machibroda stretched a triple into a four run, bases clearing, hit to give the Dbacks an 8 to 4 lead. The Dbacks added three more to their total, going on to beat the Cubs 11 to 4 before an announced crowd of 84.

With the win, which marks their 4th in a row, the Dbacks move their overall record to 23-10-1 and their league record to 19-5. The Dbacks next game is an afternoon tilt against the first place Muenster Red Sox on Friday,  3:00 pm, at Cairns.
