Gameday Thread, #55: 5/31 vs. Marlins


Anibal Sanchez
RHP, 4-1, 2.60


Ian Kennedy
RHP, 6-1, 3.01

After last night's offensive blow-out by the Diamondbacks, I'd settle for one-third of those fifteen runs tonight. This has the making's of a very solid pitcher's duel, with both men having been on top of their games recently. Arizona is going for their 20th win of the month, which would be the first time they've reached that mark since April 2008. Of course, a victory would also guarantee them staying on top of the NL West, which is where we want to be. It's also put them at 16-2 over the past 18 games, a mark reached since 2006 by only one NL team in the regular season - the 2009 Rockies went 17-1 in June 2009.

No line-up at the time of writing, and Mrs. SnakePit and I are about to go curl up in front of The Expendables, so I'm sure one of the editors will add the appropriate information in due course. Done! Should be rattling around for much of this one. Recap may be a little later than expected, since Sprankton is at the game, so we'll be getting an eye-witness report, hopefully reporting on the Diamondbacks extending their winning streak to eight games, and also stretching their lead over the Giants, as May comes to an end.
