I wish it had been 1-2-3, it'd have been a little easier. But it's never easy when you're out there, trying to close out a game.
-- David Hernandez

No problem. I was so thoroughly convinced Hernandez was going to nail this one, that I went out for a walk in the bottom of the ninth and wandered down to Chase Field. Quite a hive of activity down there, I have to say. Must admit though, I was very pleased to get the text message from KTAR confirming the win - and seeing, when I got back, how that inning unfolded, I think stepping out for some fresh air was definitely a wise move. It pushes us up to 1.5 games behind the Giants, pending their result of their game [ongoing at time of writing, but they are down three in the ninth]. Here's Kirk Gibson, Ian Kennedy, grand-slam king Kelly Johnson and Hernandez, to talk us through this one.
