This Day In Diamondbacks History: July 18

Overall: 7-7 Home: 3-4 - Road: 4-3
  • 1998: Brian Anderson got the win for the Diamondbacks, as they beat the Colorado Rockies 4-2 at BOB. Anderson allowed seven hits over seven innings, with four strikeouts, no walks and two earned runs. Arizona used a three-run sixth to break a game that had been tied at one: with the bases-loaded, David Dellucci delivered an RBI hit to chase the Rockies' starter, and Damian Miller followed with a two-RBI single. Bobby Chouinard and Gregg Olson threw two perfect innings of relief, and four D-backs had multi-hit games.
  • 2003: The Arizona Diamondbacks traded Tony Womack to the Colorado Rockies for Mike Watson. Given his OPS+ of 53 for the season, it was a miracle we actually got anything for Womack - even if that "thing" was a pitcher who never got above High-A, posting a 5.01 ERA there. Barely a month later, Womack was traded on to the Cubs, for another minor-leaguer (the Rockies did slightly better; this one got to Double-A). Womack did have a decent 2004 with the Cards, putting up a 91 OPS+ - a career best for a year with more than 40 PAs - but there was no more World Series magic for Tony.
  • 2003: Miguel Batista tossed a complete game shutout on only 93 pitches in a 6-0 win at San Diego. Batista allowed seven hits, but needed to face only three batters over the minimum, thanks to the Padres hitting into four double-plays, three on the ground and a line-drive DP. It's still tied for the shortest nine-inning complete game thrown in franchise history [Randy Johnson had an 82-pitch CG, but that was eight innings] On offense, Steve Finley homered and tripled, driving in three runs, with Luis Gonzalez and Shea Hillenbrand having two-hit games.
  • 2011: The Diamomdbacks beat the Brewers 3-0 at Chase Field: Josh Collmenter pitched eight scoreless innings of three-hit ball against the Brewers to earn his fifth win, and lower his ERA on the year to 2.65. David Hernandez threw a perfect ninth to complete the three-hitter, picking up his 9th save in place of an injured J.J. Putz. Arizona got on the board in the third, on a Gerardo Parra double-play, and Ryan Roberts supplied a two-run home-run in the sixth, to provide the rest of the D-backs scoring. Roberts, Chris Young and Willie Bloomquist had two knocks apiece.
