"It wasn't me greatest outing. I made a couple of bad pitches in key spots, but my defense came through. I'm just glad the team got me the win"
- Josh Collmenter
"It's sad. I've really, really enjoyed my time here. My family, we obviously live here and to be able to call the Diamondbacks home as well was a pleasure, an absolute pleasure."
- JJ Putz
Arron Hill drove in 2 runs, Paul Goldschmidt continued his dominance over Tim Lincecum and the Diamondbacks won for just the third time in 10 games to open the homestand against the Giants.
It wasn't pretty, but D-backs starter Josh Collmenter found a way to last 5 inning while his offense managed to get him enough support in a 4-1 Friday night at Chase field.
McCarthy's run with the D'backs has not gone smoothly. He excelled in his last outing,though, surrendering three earned runs on seven hits in seven innings on Monday. The right-hander was knocked around to the tune of 5 runs of 6 hits in 6 2/3 on opening day against the Giants.
Putz called the Diamondbacks a "first class organization from top to bottom", thanking team president Derrick Hall, general manager Kevin Towers and manager Kirk Gibson.
Toussaint went 8-2 this past season with a 1.22 era and struck out 104 batters in 63 1/3 innings. Now that the D'backs have locked up their first rounder, the question now is how long will it take the 17-year old to get to the major leagues.
These guys can hit.
