Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander Taijuan Walker was serving them up at Salt River Fields on Monday.
Before the D-backs’ game against the Colorado Rockies, Walker dished out free tacos to fans and teammates from a custom taco truck.
Walker uses a recipe handed down from his mother, Nellie Garcia, and has added a few wrinkles of his own. His specialty: bison tacos.
Claude Giroux and Wayne Simmonds scored for the Flyers, who have lost six of seven. Philadelphia sits in third place in the Metropolitan Division with 81 points, two in front of Columbus and three ahead of New Jersey.
Got to flush it out and move forward, Flyers coach Dave Hakstol said.
The Golden Knights were playing their first game since setting a record for road wins by an expansion team with Saturday’s 2-1 shootout victory at Buffalo. Vegas improved to 21-12-3 on the road and 45-19-5 overall.
Carpenter netted the game-winner after strong work along the boards by Cody Eakin and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, both of whom got assists. Eakin got the puck to Carpenter, who fired a wrist shot from left of the post past Petr Mrazek’s glove side.
Bartolo Colon could be pitching his way into the Texas Rangers’ rotation at age 44 as he continues to shut down hitters half his age in spring training.
Colon called it one of the best outings he had this spring.
Because what I’ve been trying to do is throw strikes, Colon said. That’s what I’ve been doing to try to make it happen.
Marc-Andre Fleury has helped surprising Vegas by bringing a positive vibe and a contagious amount of confidence to the locker room. His play on the ice hasn’t been too shabby, either.
Fleury made 38 saves to become the 13th goalie in NHL history with 400 career wins, and Ryan Carpenter scored the winning goal with 2:40 left to lead the Golden Knights over the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 on Monday night.
