After the jump, some team news, more on Eri Yoshida's US debut, and a couple feel-good stories.

Team and Player News

  • [] Hinch focused on winning, not excuses
    "One thing to make perfectly clear is we're not victims here," Hinch said. "So I'm not going to accept any sort of sou faces around here and 'woe is me' because we're not victims. We created this mess and we've got to get ourselves out of it. If you want better results, you have to force the issue."
  • [] Changes and Issues Aplenty For Diamondbacks
    "I sense a ton of frustration on our team and we're not responding perfectly, but I don't think there's a lack of effort o a lack of will...I just think there is a lack of answers."
  • [] Arizona Diamondbacks' Rusty Ryal could see time in left field
    "I feel like [Jackson] is pressing a lot," Hinch said. "It's very uncharacteristic what he's doing on the field, whether it's chasing the high pitch or being really jumpy in the batter's box. He doesn't look comfortable."
  • [] Snyder details nervous road trip
    "There were times whee I would be sitting in the dugout during the game looking at that clock in right field and thinking, 'Missed that flight. If she calls right now, I can still sneak on that last flight. I missed the last flight, hope she can hang on until the morning,'" Snyder said. "It was pretty crazy."
