This Date In Diamondbacks History: April 29

Overall: 6-6 - Home: 3-3 - Road: 3-3

  • 2008: Max Scherzer made his big league debut vs. Astros, retiring all 13 batters faced in 4.1 innings of relief, including 7 strikeouts. It was the longest "perfect" debut in modern Major League history, i.e. one in which a pitcher retired every batter he faced. However, that came after Edgar Gonzalez allowed six earned runs in 2.2 innings, digging the offense too big a hole, with Houston beating Arizona by a score of 6-4. Orlando Hudson and Justin Upton had two hits, and Conor Jackson three RBI.
  • 2010: D-backs hit 4 homers en route to their second straight double-digit output on the road, a 13-5 win in Wrigley giving them 25 runs in two days. Two of those came off Mr. Obligatory GIF himself, Ted Lilly, as Arizona scored all thirteen runs without reply from Chicago between the fourth and seventh innings. Two of the long-balls came off the bat of Adam Laroche, and Kelly Johnson had four hits from the lead-off spot. They combined to go 7-for-9 with three home-runs and eight driven in.
  • 2011. Armando Galarraga pitched decently, allowing three runs over seven innings, but the offense for the Diamondbacks weren't up to it, and Arizona lost 4-2 to the Chicago Cubs at Chase. Justin Upton drove in both runs with a home-run in the first inning, but that was it for the D-backs, Carlos Zambrano and his colleagues posting zeroes thereafter. Upton and Melvin Mora each had two hits for the home side, but Arizona went 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position, a failure that proved costly.
