This Day In Diamondbacks History: May 7

Record: 5-9. Home: 4-7. Road: 1-2.

  • 1982: Conor Jackson born. One of the sadder stories in Diamondbacks' history, as we revisited as recently as yesterday. He's seeing significant time in the minors for the first season since 2005, and is currently hitting .200 for the White Sox in AAA, though with a K:BB ratio of 19:16, his OBP is up at a decent .327. But hey, he still managed to make a recent list of baseball's sexiest players, so has got that going for him.
  • 2004: Randy Johnson fanned 10, giving him his 194th career game with double-digit strikeouts, and it was also the Diamondbacks 1,000th regular season game. However, neither of these had any effect on the result, an Arizona suffered a 4-1 loss at the hands of Philadelphia. Johnson allowed four hits and two walks in 6.1 innings, but the two earned runs allowed got him the loss. Steve Finley had two of the D-backs' six hits, driving in our only run with a solo home-run to lead off the fourth inning.
  • 2011: The Arizona Diamondbacks released Ron Mahay. Look, I know it was only a year ago, but you're probably going "Who?" Left-handed reliever, career ERA+ 120, we signed him at the start of last year, just in case Joe Paterson wasn't up to facing major-league pitching. Seems we were a year ahead of the curve on that. :( A month later, with Paterson comfortable, and Mahay posting a 9.58 ERA with Reno, we future endeavored him. He's now with the Reds Triple-A affiliate.
  • 2011: Daniel Hudson twirled a gem, blanking San Diego for seven innings in Petco, on five hits and no walks, with six strikeouts, and the Diamondbacks cruised to a 6-0 victory over the Padres. Ryan Roberts had three hits for the visitors, and Justin Upton blasted his seventh home-run of the season, a two-run shot in the fourth off Dustin Moseley. Aaron Heilman and Paterson completed the shutout, Arizona prevailing in a brisk two hours and 22 minutes.
