And don't forget, folks: there's no such thing as an Arizona hot-dog. Line-up after the jump, 'charmer makes a welcome return from the DL (and travel list!) to recap.

If this looks familiar, it's because it's the same starting eight of position players that we had yesterday. Even more remarkably, they are in the same order, and Nick Piecoro says it's the first time that has happened this year. Someone must have hidden Gibby's line-up dice. Hopefully, the Diamondbacks can break through the .500 ceiling, which they've failed to do on their last three attempts, going back to May 6. With our Opening Day starter on the mound at home, and facing a Cubs team now possessing the worst record in the majors, there won't be many better chances.
