D-Backs 1-0; Encarnacion pulled
Edwin Encarnacion was taken out of the game in the middle of the second. He's not hurt. Manager's decision.
We'll find out exactly what the deal is after the game. But replays showed he did not run out his popup in the first.
Question: What happens if a veteran pull the same thing? Ken Griffey Jr. stood at the plate Sunday on the ball he hit off the wall.
Matt Belisle gave up a sac fly in the first. The Reds had runners at first and third and didn't cash in. Encarnacion popped to second and Josh Hamilton took a called third strike.
Micah Owings, the kid starting for the Arizona, gave up one hit in his first big league start (although that was against Washington). He was 16-2 with 3.33 ERA at AA and AAA last year.
