 Errors plagued the Arizona Diamondbacks during the early weeks of the season.

The Diamondbacks offense and pitching are off to a hot start, but the defense is looking brutal. Last year, the Diamondbacks finished 22nd in the league in errors with 101. Many players were out of position like Chris Owings and Brandon Drury http://www.diamondbacksfanatic…..-c-11.html, but the defense certainly contributed to some of the pitching and overall struggles. This year there have been multiple mistakes and errors that have already contributed to a loss.

Game Changing Errors

The first big error of the year was a groundball hit to Brandon Drury off the bat of Buster Posey in the 3rd inning of the second game of the year. The ball was hit hard, but Drury had time to keep it in front of him and keep it close to Robbie Ray Jersey make a play. The ball took a huge hop off of him, and there was no play at first. This error led to a run in an eventual loss.

The next play that affected a game and series immensely was the Taijuan Walker error in his second start in San Francisco. The bases were loaded with one out. Matt Moore, the starting pitcher for the Giants , placed a swinging bunt in between Walker and Goldschmidt down the first base line. It took a while for Walker to get to the ball http://www.diamondbacksfanatic…..-c-10.html, and there seemed to be a miscommunication. Walker threw the ball home to cut off the lead runner, but Jeff Mathis wasn’t ready. The runner from second took off for home as Mathis went to the backstop to get the ball. Mathis’ throw to cut of that runner went off Walker’s glove towards first base. The http://www.diamondbacksfanatic…..-c-13.html runner from first base was running hard the entire play, and he scored too.
