For what it's worth, with the win tonight, the D-backs are no longer in sole position of last place in the division. Whether that means anything or not, it's a small victory in a season that hasn't been as exciting as one may have thought at the beginning of the year.
Although it was a brief outing for Josh Collmenter, he did what he had to do tonight against an inferior -- at least on paper -- Padres offense. The Tomahawk went 5 1/3 innings with only one earned run and handed it over to the D-backs bullpen, which shut down the San Diego bats for the remainder of the game.
And for the second straight game, Addison Reed recorded a save without giving up a run, hallelujah.
