Jarrod Parker's major league debut on Tuesday night was overshadowed by the Arizona Diamondbacks' improbable tenth-inning, five-run comeback, which would have been impossible had Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Blake Hawksworth remembered to cover first base on what would have been a game-ending groundout. But Parker, who was the D-back's first-round pick in 2007, looked solid in five-plus innings of work, showing a much better changeup than I'd seen from him before as well as the two-seamer he adopted in the middle of this season.
