And we wend our weary way to the comfy chair once again, preparing to watch our Diamondbacks as they roll out in a third effort to get that tricky 81st victory. I dunno about them, but I know, after last night, I'm ready for the season to be over. It's one thing to take four and a quarter hours and win, or even have a loss like that early in the year, when we're all somewhat fresh. But, really: 159 games in, then you drop this on us? For context, of the 42 final series games played by Arizona prior to this year, only one reached even 3½ hours - the 10-inning contest against LA in the penultimate game last year took 3:47. And we won that on RyRo's walk-off slam, so it had a happy ending, at least.

It's not my recap tonight, but I wouldn't wish another contest like yesterday's on poor 'charmer. I was at least able to get a somewhat early jump on the write-up, because as soon as Zagurski showed up, I knew how it was going to end. He is to Diamondbacks games, what Jeff Goldblum is to Jurassic Park movies. "Oh yeah: 'Ooh, aah', that's how it always starts. But then there's running and screaming..." Which is a long, roundabout way of saying that I may not be about much for this one, even if we did largely get caught up on Tivo'd goodness this morning [Dr. Who = not a dry eye in the house]. Here's the line-up:

  1. Gerardo Parra CF
  2. Aaron Hill 2B
  3. Justin Upton RF
  4. Miguel Montero C
  5. Paul Goldschmidt 1B
  6. Jason Kubel LF
  7. Chris Johnson 3B
  8. John McDonald SS
  9. Patrick Corbin P
