This Day In Diamondbacks History: May 21

Record: 7-7 - Home: 5-1 - Road 2-6

  • 1998. Amaury Telemaco got the W for three innings of one-hit relief, after Jeff Suppan could only get through four inning, with the Diamondbacks coming from behind to beat the Florida Marlins 6-4 in Pro Player Stadium. After fighting back to tie the game at four, Arizona took the lead in the seventh. Devon White doubled home Jay Bell with one out; White then stole third and scored on an error by the Marlins catcher. Travis Lee and David Dellucci each had a pair of hits for the Diamondbacks.
  • 2005: Shaun Estes and Nate Robertson each allowed one run while pitching into the seventh inning, but neither man got the decision, with the game not being decided until the 11th inning. Chad Tracy led off the top half for the Diamondbacks, but it took a two-out single by Koyie Hill to give Arizona a 2-1 lead. Unfortunately, Brian Bruney was unable to hold the advantage in the bottom half, going double, groundout, RBI double, intentional walk, walk, RBI single to give the Tigers a 3-2 walkoff win.
  • 2011: The Diamondbacks released Russell Branyan. We signed him as a left-handed first baseman, to platoon with Xavier Nady (did you know Nady had more games at 1B last year than anyone else for us?). But in 31 games, he hit .210 and didn't even provide expected power, with one homer in 62 AB. He got some playing time with the Angels in a similar role, but did little better there. Branyan signed a minor-league deal with the Yankees, though back trouble has kept him out of all action so far in 2012.
  • 2011: It was Arizona's turn to mount a late rally, scoring six in the bottom of the eighth to overturn a three-run deficit and beat the Twins 9-6 at Chase Field, despite making five errors. Kelly Johnson had a grand-slam in that big inning, and Juan Miranda a two-run double; Gerardo Parra went 3-for-3 with a walk. Micah Owings pitched 5.1 innings, allowing four runs, three earned, on seven hits and a walk, and Aaron Heilman got the W, as the lucky recipient of the offense, his record going to 3-0.
