Yasmany Tomas #24
The Arizona Diamondbacks showed everyone that you can win a game by hitting the baseball or not hitting the baseball at all. In a tense and thrilling well-pitched game that ended in the 11th inning on a walk-off walk to Diamondbacks catcher Welington Castillo for a 3-2 Arizona win at Chase Field; it was Yasmany Tomas who provided Arizona with the only run-scoring offense for the team in regulation by crushing solo homers in the second and fourth innings. In his sophomore season, Tomas is quickly becoming one of the elite power hitters in baseball.
QUOTE: "It's a tough spot coming over from [Cuba] last year and coming pretty much straight to the big leagues and facing all these pitchers. He's definitely been learning and getting better every day," Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt said, about Tomas becoming more comfortable as he adjusts to a new country, new surroundings and a new league.
FACT: Tomas now has six multi-homer games this season. He has hit six home runs in the last 11 games, and the current streak is three straight games.
