Gameday Thread, #30: 5/6 vs. Pirates

Perez (1-3, 7.11)
Vazquez (3-2, 5.11 ERA)

Stefan of Random Fandom said it best about last night's game, how it was a throwback to the 2004 Diamondbacks. Let's hope this was a momentary lapse of reason, rather than the shape of things to come.

It should be ace-vs-ace tonight, but neither Perez nor Vazquez have been utterly dependable so far. However, Vazquez does at least appear to be heading in the right direction; Perez got pounded for six runs in five innings last start, and has been very wild - 23 walks in 31.2 innings. Patience would seem like a virtue tonight.
