Arizona manager Torey Lovullo has often said that Tim Locastro is the fastest man in the majors. Locastro showed off that speed Saturday night with four hits and a stolen base that broke a big league record, helping the Arizona Diamondbacks cool off the Cincinnati Reds 8-3. Locastro's theft of second in the sixth inning was the 28th straight stolen base to start his career without getting caught.
Tucker Barnhart's clutch 10th-inning single kept the Reds rolling on Friday night. Cincinnati's playing so well these days that the only surprise was the catcher's heroics were ever needed. “It was a roller coaster,” Barnhart said.
