This Day In Diamondbacks History: May 27

Overall: 4-8 - Home: 2-4 - Road: 2-4

  • 2001: The Diamondbacks stunned the Padres at Qualcomm, scoring four in the ninth off future Hall of Famer Trevor Hoffman, to turn a two-run deficit into a 6-4 victory. The damage was done on a pair of two-run homers: Erubiel Durazo with no outs, and then Reggie Sanders with one out. Brian Anderson allowed two runs, one earned, over seven innings, but Byung-Hyun walked three of the five batters faced and was charged with two runs to give San Diego their lead. David Dellucci had three hits for AZ.
  • 2006: The D-backs shut out the Reds for the second straight night, this time by a score of 7-0. Luis Gonzalez hit his 511th career double, tying Mark Grace for 36th place on the all-time doubles list. Orlando Hudson had three hits, including a three-run homer, with Chris Snyder and Craig Counsell each getting two hits. Juan Cruz allowed four hits over six scoreless innings to get the decision, and the win moved the D-backs 10 games above .500 for the first time since July 20, 2003.
  • 2007: After struggling to solve Roy Oswalt through the front four, managing two hits and a walk, the Diamondbacks figured it out, scoring all of their runs in the final four frames, on their way to an 8-4 victory over the Astros at Chase Field. The team totaled 14 hits, with six players having multi-hit games. Carlos Quentin and Mark Reynolds each did so, and also drove in a pair of runs. Livan Hernandez pitched a complete game, scattering eleven hits but walking none and striking out two.
  • 2011: The D-backs came back from six down to beat the Astros 7-6 at Minute Maid Park. Arizona fell behind 6-0 after four, as Houston got to Daniel Hudson, but got a two-run homer from Juan Miranda in the fifth and another in the sixth, to pull within striking distance. A Kelly Johnson RBI single, and hit from Chris Young that provoked an error by the pitcher and allowed two to score, completed the resurrection for the visitors in the seventh. Hudson ended up pitching six innings, so got the W.
