This Day In Diamondbacks History: May 10

Record: 6-6 - Home: 5-1 - Away 1-5

  • 1984. Kam Mickolio born. He was the other, lesser half of the relievers we got from Baltimore for Mark Reynolds. He will always be loved in SnakePit Towers, for the six times he came in to a game, and the six times I got to yell "Release the Kra-kam!" There was even a picture. Happy days. Unfortunately he wasn't very good, and was deemed surplus to requirements, being sold to the Hiroshima Toyo Carp last November, and has 4.40 ERA with them so far. Factoid: his middle name is Kraig. Yes, with a K.
  • 2001: Kevin Brown and Randy Johnson went toe-to-toe at Chase, both men allowing a run over eight innings, with the Big Unit fanning 13 and walking one, with the sole damage a solo home-run to Todd Hundley. After Byung-Hyun Kim struck out LA in the top of the ninth, around an error and a single, hits from Andy Fox, Travis Lee and Tony Womack gave the Diamondbacks a walk-off win without a batter being retired. Luis Gonzalez had three hits and a walk, and Jay Bell two hits and a walk for Arizona.
  • 2004. A sluigfest broke out at Bank One Ballpark, with Casey Daigle and James Baldwin the victims. By the end of the fourth inning, the Diamondbacks and Mets had combined for 18 runs on 23 hits and four walks. The effort seemed to tire out the offenses, as only two more scored the rest of the way, Arizona prevailing 12-8. Luis Gonzalez had three hits and four RBI, while leadoff man Chad Tracy drove in three. Daigle allowed seven runs in five innings, tying a team record for a starter when getting a win.
  • 2011: A decade on, another duel. Ian Kennedy + Tim Lincecum in San Francisco, each putting up eight scoreless innings and allowing only four hits. However, a one-out single by Ol' Beady Eyes, Cody Ross, in the bottom of the ninth off David Hernandez, scored Darren Ford from second, and gave the Giants a 1-0 walk-off win. Kennedy struck out eight and walked thrre, but got a no-decision for his efforts. Kelly Johnson and Stephen Drew each had a hit and a walk for the Diamondbacks.
