Happy birthday to Diamondbacks bullpen coach, Glenn Sherlock, who turns 52 today.

Record: 8-4 - Home: 7-0 - Road: 1-4

  • 1960. Glenn Sherlock born. Sherlock is the longest-tenured member of the Diamondbacks staff, having been here, in one capacity or another, every year since the franchise started in 1998. He never actually played in the majors: Sherlock was a catcher in the Astros and Yankees farm systems, getting as high as AAA. He has been the bullpen coach since 2005, his second go-around in the job, which he also had from 1998-2002. Between times, he was also bench coach, first-base coach and third-base coach. His son, Tim, was a 40th-round pick by the D-backs in 2009.
  • 1999: Approximately 8,000 fans greeted the D-backs upon returning from their playoff-clinching sweep at the Giants. Arizona entered the series 9.5 up with ten to play, but took all three games by a combined margin of 25-7. The final contest was a 7-1 victory, behind 6.2 innings from Omar Dall, who allowed one run on four hits and two walks with three strikeouts. Greg Colbrunn had three hits for the Diamondbacks, including a first inning home-run, and there were two-hit afternoons for both Hanley Frias and Daal.
  • 2002: Randy Johnson recorded his personal-best and club record 24th win, pitching his eighth complete game to seal his first "Triple Crown," only the second NL pitcher since 1973 to lead the league in W (24), ERA (2.32) and K (334). He allowed a pair of unearned runs, on six hits and two walks, striking out eight as Arizona beat Colorado, 4-2, at Bank One Ballpark. Matt Williams drove in three with a triple (his first with the bases loaded since 1994) in the third, the inning after Mark Little opened the scoring with a three-bagger of his own.
  • 2011. The Dodgers scored three times in the first on a Matt Kemp home-run, before recording an out, and though Daniel Hudson allowed only one more run in seven innings of work, it was enough for the visitors as Los Angeles beat Arizona 4-2 at Chase Field. Hudson allowed five hits and a walk, with five strikeouts. Chris Young had two of the Diamondbacks' five hits, and they made a game of it in the eighth, scoring twice and putting the tying run in scoring position without a hit, courtesy of five LA walks. However, Gerardo Parra flew out to end the threat.
