This Day In Diamondbacks History: June 15

Record: 4-7 - Home: 2-4 - Road: 2-3

  • 1972. Tony Clark born. He shares a birthday with Tim Lincecum, which puts a pretty big dent in the whole astrology thing, if you ask me. Clark was actually third in Rookie of the Year voting once, which is a surprise, since I thought he came out of the womb a grizzled veteran. He had one monstrous season for us...one reasonable year, and three pretty crappy ones. The monster was 2005, when he became only the second player in major-league history to reach 100 hits with thirty home-runs in less than 350 ABs, following Kevin Mitchell ('94 Reds). Anybody, any time...
  • 2001. The Arizona Diamondbacks signed Carlos Reyes as a free agent. The 32-year old Reyes had bounced around a few organizations, playing for San Diego, Boston and Philadelphia over the previous two years, and had originally signed with Oakland, for whom he made his major-league debut in 1994. They let him go, and we pounced. However, an 8.68 ERA in eight games and 9.1 innings with Tucson failed to make a good impression, and he was released a few weeks later. We might get to that when it happens.
  • 2007: The Diamondbacks rallied from a 3-0 deficit with a five-run eighth and taked on a two-run ninth for a 7-3 win over the Orioles in Baltimore. Chris Snyder had a solo homer and Orlando Hudson came off the bench to hit a two-out, three-run home run. In his first game after being called up from Triple-A Tucson to replace Alberto Callaspo, Augie Ojeda went 2-for-4 with a home run and 2 RBI. Micah Owings held Baltimore scoreless through five, but gave up three in the sixth and got a no-decision, with the W going to Doug Slaten for his scoreless seventh.
  • 2011: Arizona couldn't manage to solve Madison Bumgarner in the clutch, and went down by a margin of 5-2 in San Francisco to the Giants. The game was tied at two after five innings, but the Giants took the lead in the sixth, and padded the margin with a pair of runs in the ninth, off J.J. Putz. Joe Saunders allowed three runs in seven innings, the loss taking his record to 3-7. Kelly Johnson, Justin Upton and Chris Young each had two hits, but the Diamondbacks went 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position, to fall 2 1/2 games back of the Giants.
