Diamondbacks shortstop Nick Ahmed opened the scoring on Wednesday night against the Dodgers, racing around the bases for an inside-the-park solo home run in the top of the first inning off of Alex Wood.
Ahmed is having his best offensive season thus far, entering Wednesday’s action batting .227/.298/.427. The homer was his sixth and he now has 18 RBI.
The Atlanta Braves have signed right-hander Josh Tomlin to a minor league contract with an invitation to the team’s major league camp.
The 34-year-old Tomlin, who was released by Milwaukee on Wednesday, had a 6.14 ERA in 32 games, including nine starts, with Cleveland in 2018. Tomlin was 61-53 with a 4.77 ERA in nine seasons with the Indians.
Tomlin was 2-1 with a 4.80 ERA in five games with the Brewers this spring after joining the team on a minor league deal.
