News, notes from Saturday game vs. Washington Nationals

The Arizona Diamondbacks continue their 10-game homestand Saturday at 5:10 pm against the Washington Nationals. The game can be seen on Bally Sports Arizona.

Saturday’s Diamondbacks-Nationals pitching matchup

Chase Field, 5:10 pm, Diamondbacks LHP Tommy Henry (1-0, 6.52) vs. Nationals LHP MacKenzie Gore (3-2, 3.77).

Henry was better in his last start after struggling in his first Major League outing of the year. He went 5 1/3 innings, allowing four runs on seven hits while striking out three and walking one. It’s not a line that jumps off the page, but Henry was strong through five innings, allowing just one run before running into trouble in the sixth. That outing also came in the elevation of Coors Field in Denver. … Gore has been excellent this season for Washington. He was a key piece of the blockbuster trade for Juan Soto, coming over from the Padres at the trade deadline. … Gore did not appear in the majors for the Nationals last year as he dealt with injuries, but was on the Opening Day roster this year. … His last outing was his worst of the year, as he allowed four runs in four innings against the Cubs.
