ANAHEIM, Calif.–The man might as well carry a bell with him to the field and let it ring for all to hear. Ricky Nolasco's presence on a major league mound this season has steadily sounded a death knell.
The Arizona Diamondbacks opened the game with three straight home runs off Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer and ended it with Brandon Drury's bases-loaded single in the bottom of the ninth inning for a 6-5 victory.
David Peralta, A.J. Pollock and Jake Lamb hit back-to-back-to-back home runs for Arizona to start the first inning against Washington star Max Scherzer, the first time the Diamondbacks have started a game with three straight homers.
