Christian Petersen

Randall Delgado threw a 3-hit, complete game shutout and the Diamondbacks' offense exploded for 17 hits and 10 runs as the Diamondbacks took game one against the Padres on 70's night.

Quick Quotes



"He was in total command tonight," Gibson said. "He's been really good and he's kind of been building up to this; he's just got some good stuff."

Kirk Gibson on Randall Delgado's complete game shutout

"He was basically fastball, changeup; he didn't use the breaking ball much," Nieves said. "The biggest thing was throwing strikes and attacking the strike zone."

Wil Nieves on how Delgado got his results


"This is what we've been waiting for all year," Nieves said. "We haven't been able to do it much, but we got all three today. Hopefully this is the start of a good thing. We're just hoping this keeps going because you've seen what we can do when we play together."

Daily Diamondback Digest



Offense Explodes to Support Delgado's CGSO Gem

Randall Delgado refuses to surrender his position in the rotation without a fight - nor is he going to be denied by hard luck. The young pitcher threw a three-hit complete game shutout on Friday night and contributed to the offense by going 2/3 with a run scored at the plate as well. Meanwhile, the Diamondbacks' offense laughed at a rare down night from Paul Goldschmidt and an early injury-exit from Aaron Hill in the second inning en route to a 17 hit, 10 run outburst.


Nicks, Dings, Rehab, and a Manager's Warning

Aaron Hill joins Miguel Montero on the list of the walking wounded. Trevor Cahill looked sharp in his first rehab start. And Adam Eaton pays the price for his "lucky" success showing off his wheels.

Diamondbacks Top 20 Prospects Updated

MLB has updated the top 20 prospects by organization. Some new faces grace the landscape as the 2013 draft class is included and other faces have moved on up out of prospect status.

Ziegler Stepping Up as Closer

He only has five saves on the season so far, but Brad Ziegler is easing some minds by holding down the ninth in the desert.


Chuck Powell's Recipe for Winning the NL West

Around MLB



Gonzalez Signs with Philly

Cuban pitching prospect Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez signed with the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday. The Cuban right-hander signed a deal potentially worth close to $60 million. To put it in perspective, that's more than the Dodgers will be paying Puig, and even more than what the Rangers will be paying Cy Young candidate Yu Darvish.


Bailey 0-4 Since No-Hitter

Homer Bailey was robbed in Los Angeles by a latino with attitude problems and a scruffy-looking repeat offender. Hanley Ramirez hit a 2-run HR off the Reds' ace, while Clayton Kershaw continued to dominate the NL, throwing yet another complete game gem, in which he only surrendered one run. The result? Homer Bailey took a tough-luck loss and failed to notch his first victory since his no-no against San Francisco way back on July 1st.


Junior Lake: A Look Back

Now that the Diamondbacks are done playing the Cubs, it's okay to take a brief pause and look at just how much fun the young center fielder has been bringing to the game since his call-up.
