Alex Avila worked two scoreless innings with just one hit allowed in Wednesday's blowout loss in Colorado.
The stat line wouldn't normally be terribly noteworthy for a pitcher, but Avila is normally on the other end of the pitches as a catcher. The D-Backs were getting routed 19-2, so manager Torey Lovullo went with a second position player to start the eighth inning. Avila actually needed just 13 pitches to record six outs, throwing 11 of his pitches for strikes. He was much better than Daniel Descalso, also a position player, who was roughed up for three earned runs, four hits and a walk over 2 2/3 innings. Jul 12 - 1:33 AM
