Polanco's HR thwarts Greinke no-hit bid, Arizona wins 2-1

The celebration of an 11-4 drubbing of the Pittsburgh Pirates was subdued in the Arizona Diamondbacks' clubhouse Friday night.

Manager Torey Lovullo said the Diamondbacks will "take their time" with Iannetta, though it looks like he'll avoid the disabled list. However, anytime a head trauma is involved, with batter is hit in that area, no one is comfortable until a full diagnosis has been made, so the team is using all precautions possible to make sure Iannetta is fine.

After several minutes of getting treatment, Iannetta was able to stand up and walk off the field with the trainer holding a towel to his nose. Only one batter has reached base for the Pirates on Thursday night.

Lovullo, though, said he thought "the pitch (that hit Iannetta) just got away from their pitcher".

Pirates starter Tyler Glasnow (1-3) lasted just 2 2/3 innings, giving up seven runs on seven hits with a pair of walks and three strikeouts.

Some of the shine from Arizona's third straight win was lost when catcher Chris Iannetta was hit in the face by a pitch from Pirates reliever Johnny Barbato to start the bottom of the seventh.

"The bats have been a little quieter than usual lately", said Ahmed, who also doubled, was intentional walked and scored twice Wednesday. "Everything was OK", Lovullo said.

"It got away from me".

Chris Iannetta took a pitch to the mouth.

On the 95th pitch of the night, Polanco finally broke it open for the Pirates, hitting the ball to nearly the same spot, just fair, for a home run.

Players "scared" to criticize Sharapova - Bouchard
Against Mladenovic in Stuttgart, Sharapova had three break points to earn a shot at closing the match in straight sets. Sharapova was adamant the hype surrounding the match-up didn't distract her and expected Bouchard to come out firing.

Greinke had a no-hitter going all the way into the eighth inning before Gregory Polanco popped a solo shot in the beginning of the frame.

The Diamondbacks and Pirates have been beefing since 2014, when Pirates pitcher Ernesto Frieri hit Diamondbacks slugger Paul Goldschmidt in the hand, ending his season in August. "When I say that, it sounds light because I have no idea what he felt". All of those hits but Peralta's came on fastballs clocked in the 92-95 miles per hour range. Drury capped the inning with a three-run homer.

The homer cut Arizona's lead to 2-1. In addition, all the team's runs were collected with two outs. His best year came in 2008, when he posted career highs in home runs (18), RBIs (65) and batting average (.264).

NOTES: The Pirates added INF David Freese and UTL Adam Frazier to the active roster from the disabled list, sending INF Chris Bostick and INF Max Moroff to Triple-A Indianapolis.
