Since Sling TV dropped Fox Sports Arizona from its service, it’s taken some doing for me to regain the ability to watch D-Backs games live, so I don’t think I’d actually seen a Mike Leake start until now. I know that lots of folks here in the Snake Pit have been unenthusiastic about him, but I was definitely interested to have a look at the guy.

Leake started off a bit shaky, alternating outs with line drive singles to Nick Martini and Eric Hosmer in the first, and surrendering a leadoff single to Padres second baseman Ty France before retiring the next three batters in the top of the second.

Padres starter Cal Quantrill had a similarly blemished first inning, giving up a one-out single to Josh Rojas before sitting down Ketel Marte and Eduardo Escobar on a productive ground out to first and a fly ball to center. Like Leake, too, he gave up a leadoff single to Christian Walker. This is where the starters’ paths diverged, though, as new Diamondback Abraham Almonte followed with a single to right that allowed Walker to reach third.
