Heath Bell: My mom gave me advice on how to get Skip Schumaker out

Heath-Bell-DiamondbacksSkip Schumaker has enjoyed a great deal of success against Heath Bell throughout his career, and that continued on Wednesday night during the Arizona Diamondbacks’ 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Bell was brought in to protect a one-run lead in the ninth and did just that, but not before Schumaker led off with a double.

Schumaker was brought in to pinch hit because he was 4-for-8 in his career against Bell. He is now 5-for-9 with four doubles, and Bell acknowledged after the game that he has had problems getting the 33-year-old out. Fortunately, Heath’s mom is going to help him with that.

Schumaker is batting only .151 this season in 28 games, so there are plenty of ways to get him out. It sounds like Bell’s mom has discovered one of them that should work, which is great news for the Diamondbacks going forward. Maybe they can even arrange to get her in the dugout as an additional pitching coach.
