This Day In Diamondbacks History: July 21

Record: 10-3 - Home: 4-1 - Road: 6-2

  • 2001: Curt Schilling picked up his 14th win of the season, showing no ill-effects from having started three days previously, in the game at San Diego suspended after the transformer blew. He allowed one hit and two walks over seven innings, striking out 12 as the Diamondbacks cruised to a 9-2 victory over the Giants in San Francisco. Luis Gonzalez had three hits and drove in three, while David Dellucci had a pinch-hit grand-slam in the eighth off Bryan Boehringer. Damian Miller and Matt Williams enjoyed two-hit games for Arizona.
  • 2007: The Diamondbacks beat the Cubs 3-2 at Wrigley Field. Juan Cruz got the win for three innings of scoreless relief, coming in to replace Micah Owings after our starter took 95 pitches to get through four frames, allowing four hits and three walks, but only two runs. Cruz faced the minimum, allowing one walk and striking out four; he, Tony Pena and Jose Valverde combined for five no-hit innings. Stephen Drew hit a tie-breaking solo home-run off Bob Howry in the eighth inning, He, Chris Snyder and Conor Jackson had two-hit games, while Orlando Hudson went 3-for-5.
  • 2008: Randy Johnson, Micah Owings and Chad Qualls combined on a two-hitter at Chase, with the Diamondbacks beating the Cubs 2-0. The Big Unit allowed both hits along with a walk in his seven scoreless innings, striking out four. An Alex Romero home-run, leading off the bottom of the sixth for Arizona, was all the offense they'd need, though an RBI triple by Stephen Drew in the eighth added some insurance for the D-backs. Those were the only two knocks Arizona managed - that made this one of only four full-length games since 1988, where both sides had two hits or less.
  • 2011: Ian Kennedy beat Zach Greinke, and the Diamondbacks beat the Brewers 4-0 in Phoenix. Kennedy and three relievers combined on a six-hit shutout, with Kennedy holding Milwaukee to four hits and two walks over seven innings, with five strikeouts, throwing 114 pitches. The home team used the long ball, with Arizona taking the lead on solo shots from Justin Upton and Miguel Montero in the fourth, and Kelly Johnson adding a two-run shot in the eighth to provide the final score. Montero had two hits for the D-backs.
