Shaun Marcum is a master of deception, befuddling hitters with his perfectly placed change-up, and sneaking his fastball by them when they least expect it. At least, that's the idea. In the first three innings of Game Three, though, he's been hittable (four hits) and not as fine with his control (two walks) as he normally is.
In the third, Marcum walked Aaron Hill with one out, and he followed that up with a walk to Justin Upton. Miguel Montero followed that with an RBI single up the middle to make the Arizona lead 3-1.
The Diamondbacks almost extended the lead with Paul Goldschmidt at the plate, as Montero tried to take second on a ball in the dirt, and when Jonathan Lucroy threw to second, Upton tried to take home, only to be cut down by a Rickie Weeks throw. Goldschmidt then flew out to center field, and what could have been a sacrifice fly became the third out of the inning.
While I was writing this, Yuniesky Betancourt had an eight-pitch at-bat. Feels like that's the real story here.
