Rubby, Peralta boost D-backs over Royals
Ziegler, who was 30-for-32 in save situations last year, faced four batters and got three to ground out, and the one base hit was a grounder back up the middle.
"Just was trying to really work on my sinker with a hitter in there," Ziegler said. "Just kind of see how they're reacting to it and what adjustments I need to make. I got ground balls and even some of the fouls balls were off their foot or up the third-base line, so that's a good sign that the ball is moving pretty good."
