Snakes Wilt After Nine
Add Willy Taveras to the list of names that have haunted Arizona in the playoffs.
The D-Backs find themselves in a precarious 2-0 hole in the NLCS and headed to Coors where doing any worse than taking two out of three games will end Arizona’s post-season run.
Taveras helped extend the Snakes’ history of extra-inning woes on Friday when his 11th-inning, bases-loaded walk cashed Ryan Spilborghs with what proved to be the winning run. Taveras, as you may have noticed, helped out with the leather as well.
