DBook at D-Backs Game

The Diamondbacks surprised Devin Booker and the other Chase Field patrons this week with a thrilling 6-5 victory.

When Alec Thomas ties the game with a two-run homer in the eighth inning, he and the spectators witness one of the greatest moments in Diamondbacks history. Booker captured everything with his camcorder.

But perhaps the most pivotal moment was when Rob Thomson, the manager of the Phillies, substituted youngster Orion Kerkering for Seranthony Dominguez with runners on second and third and one out after the latter had given up a lead in Game 3 the day before. Kerkering had never pitched in back-to-back games in his month-long MLB career.

When Kerkering walked his first two hitters, the second of whom scored a run to trim the lead to 5-3, it appeared as though the wheels were falling off. Finally, the youngster became comfortable facing Pavin Smith, who grounded out to close the inning.

Still, that one run ended up taking center stage.
The D-Backs goback to philly tomorrow. We'll see if Book and his camcorder tag along.
