On July 25th, Davis and three relievers combined on an eight-hit shutout of the Phillies, and they haven't scored against us since. That was the first of three consecutive shutouts and tacking on the ninth inning of the preceding game gives us 28 straight scoreless innings. And now we're back where it pretty much started, with Davis pitching against Ross Ohlendorf. Last night's game was a reversal of the previous Petit/Duke match-up, but I think we'd be more than happy to settle for a repeat of the score from the 25th - 7-0 Arizona, with seven of our ten hits going for extra bases.


I think the baseball gods must have got their calendar confused, because a one-hitter by a replacement pitcher is usually the kind of game Azreous gets to recap. They'll really have to amp up the interest level for his return to the fold tonight: a three-homer game by a Diamondback, ninth-inning comeback, that kind of thing. Any kind of win would be our fourth straight on the road, a streak not surpassed for more than two years, since the Diamondbacks rolled off six consecutive victories from May 19-June 1, 2007.
