Diamondbacks' Silvino Bracho: Strikes out seven in long relief
Summoned from Triple-A Reno earlier Sunday following Taijuan Walker's (forearm) placement on the 10-day disabled list, Bracho gave the Diamondbacks some quality innings out of the bullpen after starter Zack Godley put the team in an early hole before getting pulled in the fifth inning. Despite facing 11 fewer batters than Godley, Bracho outpaced the starter in swinging strikes, 10-9, on the afternoon. Bracho's 60-pitch workload will likely keep him unavailable for the next couple of days, but his strong showing Sunday may have nonetheless afforded him a longer stay in the Arizona bullpen than was initially expected.
