After a late and very loud game last night, the Diamondbacks look to even the series. The Rangers on the other hand hope to rile the fans up with hits and home runs galore, just like last night. But with extra innings last night and exhausted players today, the mood should be interesting.
Arizona Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo on the eruption after Rangers shortstop Corey Seager’s game-tying home run, registering 112 decibels: ‘That was easily the loudest crowd noise I ever heard.’’— Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) October 28, 2023
The Rangers are sticking with consistency, and hoping big bats from Adolis García and Corey Seager stay hot. Jordan Montgomery will take the mound tonight. Montgomery is a fresh face in Texas after coming from St. Louis at the end of July. With the Rangers, he owns a respectable 2.79 ERA
After a rough start last night for Zac Gallen, the Diamondbacks turn to another team ace, Merrill Kelly. The three of the four hottest hitters sit comfortably at the top of the lineup, hoping to get runs in early and often.
Oh, and if you or anyone you know might be at the game, get the Heim Hammer and give me a food review.
