From the seaside to the mountains go the Diamondbacks, hoping to find the thunder of their lumber in the mountains, after a series in San Diego where they hit a collective .175, scored a total of eight runs over the three games...yet still took the series. I'm pretty sure eight runs won't win us this series: indeed, bases on Wednesday night's slugfest between Colorado and San Francisco, that would be called "a decent half-inning." That said, the Rockies have averaged 2.4 runs per game outside of that blowout, including the humiliation of being shutout by Barry Zito. Stop sniggering at the ba... Oh, go ahead. We all are, actually.

Line-up and stuff after the jump, but viewers looking for the game on Fox Sports Arizona should note, the games tonight and tomorrow are on Fox Sports Arizona Plus, as the regular channel is being used for the Suns' contests on both nights. If you need information on tracking down the Plus version, this page should help.

Kubel stays in the #2 spot, Goldie is back in the line-up, and Aaron Hill gets the afternoon off, with Roberts moving to second, and Blum getting another start at third. He's due for a hit. His five-game non-hitting streak is the third-longest by a Diamondback at the start of a season: Augie Ojeda in 2010 and Matt Kata in 2005, both went seven games hitless to start the year. With the wind forecast to be blowing out to right-field in the 16-20 mph range,it could turn out to be what the offense ordered. Hudson? Not so much...

Clefo has traded recaps with 'charmer, so he'll be swinging by after the game, for those who missed it. Happy Friday the 13th, folks. Let's hope we treat Colorado in much the same way Jason treats naughty teenagers, i.e. by slaughtering them.
