FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»April 17, 2001:
The Diamondbacks beat up on the Cardinals, 17–4, collecting 15 runs in the first four innings off Dustin Hermanson and Chad Hutchinson. The last two runs come in the 9th off Bobby Bonilla, making his ML pitching debut. The most successful Card pitcher is Gene Stechschulte, who belts a 6th inning pinch homer on the 1st pitch of his 1st ML at bat (he is the 15th pitcher to accomplish this, according to home run maven David Vincent). Also getting beat up is Umpire Larry Young who is struck in the forehead by a throw from Arizona's Jay Bell and requires 14 stitches to close the gash. He'll be out 2-3 weeks. Arizona is paced by Jay Bell's four hits, including a home run, and WP Armando Reynoso.
