Twenty innings since the Diamondbacks last scored a run, and counting. It's only the second time since 2004 the team has been shutout in back-to-back games - of course, the other occasion was earlier this season, when we lost consecutive 1-0, extra-inning contests to Los Angeles. Then, we bust out the following day, delivering tacos as we beat the Rockies. Let's see what the offense has in store tonight, shall we? Early signs are...not brilliant. We saw LeBlanc back in April - he only allowed one run in five innings, but ended up with a no-decision. On the other hand, when Saunders faced the Padres on the 8th of this month, he took the loss, giving up six in six on eight hits

It's an Azrecap, however, so should be more interesting than the tedium of last night's defeat. I, however, will not be about, plotting an evening of cinematic entertainment instead. Win this one without me. Or not. S'okay either way...
