The D-backs got off to a fast start on Tuesday night in the Bronx, scoring in the first inning for the first time since July 22. After they tacked on that first run, Taylor Clarke went to work, leading the team to a 4-2 victory. Clarke, in his first start back from paternity leave, allowed one run over 5 1/3 innings.
The run he allowed in the sixth inning was unearned — Aaron Judge came around to score after reaching on an Adam Jones fielding error to start the inning. Aside from that, Clarke was mostly untouchable, allowing three hits and walking two over a 95-pitch outing.
