For sale is a truly unique collectablefrom the Giants at Diamondbacks game on Aug 2, 2018. The game would feature a marquee pitching matchup of Madison Bumgarner v Zack Grienke- Bumgarner would out-duel Grienke for the win, as the Giants would blow the game open in the later innings, winning 8-1.
This specific ball was pitched 6 times inthe top of the 5th inning by Grienke. Giants rookie Austin Slater would strike the 2ndpitch for a double - hewouldfinish this game 2 for 3 with 3 runsscoredand 2 RBI. This would be the 52nd hit of Slater's career, and one of his earliest hits available on any ball, let alone an opponent's commemorative ball.
Next, Grienke would faceanother rookie, Steven Duggar. Duggar would see 4 pitches before this ball was pitched in the dirt andreturnedfrom play.
*This ball is a rare Diamondbacks 20th AnniversaryCommemorative logo ball, used only by the Dbacks in 2018 Arizona home games. Good luck finding another one of these!*
