Do you remember this weird David Peralta moment against the Colorado Rockies in 2021?
How many ways can Peralta hurt the Rockies? Well, he was the one hurting after a July 6 hit by pitch in Arizona that scored the winning run for the Diamondbacks. Daniel Bard walked two and gave up a single to load the bases before plunking Peralta in the bottom of the ninth.
Peralta was often the right man at the right time for the Diamondbacks against the Rockies in 2021, even when it was taking one for the team.
