first_img Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Most would see the performance as a step in the wrongdirection, however, head coach Ken Whisenhunt believes apart of his team is actually improving. “We put the defense in a difficult position yesterday, butI really believe they played well,” Whisenhunt said. “Theydid a great job in the first half of responding to toughsituations and keeping the points down, so I believe thedefense is improving, it’s a good sign.” The defense did hold the Niners to only three field goalsin the first half, leaving the offense with just a 9-0hole to dig out of. Whisenhunt believed they didn’t climbout because of the lopsided time of possession.“They had it a long time, well five turnovers willcontribute to that,” Whisenhunt said. “Obviously ourdefense did a nice job early in the game, but when you putthem out there on the field that long they’ll get worndown and that what enables the other team to even havelonger drives.” Whisenhunt attributes the improvement to the playershaving more time in defensive coordinator Ray Horton’ssystem. “There’s no question they’re more comfortable with thescheme,” Whisenhunt said. “I think the communication ismuch better as far as making sure everybody is in theright gap, adjusting to the front there’s no question theplayers are getting a little chemistry with each other andsome of our younger players are starting to get it.” What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke And they’re back.
