This Day In Diamondbacks History: July 29

Record: 3-9 - Home: 1-4 - Road: 2-5

  • 2003. The New York Yankees traded Raul Mondesi and cash to the Arizona Diamondbacks for John Prowl (minors), David Dellucci and Bret Prinz. Mondesi was actually pretty good for the D-backs, hitting .302 in 45 games, with eight home-runs and a 121 OPS+, but it didn't help much, as we went 28-28 after the deal. Can see why it was made though, as AZ were only two back in the wild-card at the time, and neither Dellucci nor Prinz did much for the Yankees that year (the former had a couple of good seasons with Texas and Philadelphia). Do like the idea of a minor-leaguer called "Prowl"...

  • 2004: Shea Hillenbrand had three hits and drove in three runs, as the Diamondbacks used a pair of three-run innings on their way to a 6-4 victory over the Astros in Houston. Lance Cormier scattered eight hits and a walk over six innings, but was charged with only two earned runs, plus another unearned one, and Mike Koplove threw two hitless frames of relief. Alex Cintron also had three hits for Arizona, while there were two hit games for Quinton McCracken, Chad Tracy and Luis Gonzalez, part of a 13-hit attack from the D-backs.
  • 2008: Doug Davis carried a perfect game into the seventh before allowing a hit in the 3-0 win over the Padres at Petco. Brian Giles broke it up on a single with two outs, and Davis settled for two hits over 7.2 shutout innings, with two walks and eight strikeouts. Jon Rauch and Brandon Lyon retired the final four to complete the two-hitter. The Diamondbacks did all their scoring in the sixth inning: Mark Reynolds reached on an error to get us on the board, and Alex Romero added a two-run single later in the frame. Orlando Hudson had three hits for Arizona.
  • 2011: glovetoss.gif could not save the Diamondbacks as Ted Lilly got the victory, albeit for the minimum five innings, as Los Angeles beat Arizona 9-5 in Chavez Ravine. Josh Collmenter couldn't complete four innings, allowing five runs on seven hits and two walks, with one strikeout in 3.2 innings. Sam Demel and Alberto Castillo each allowed two runs in relief, allowing the Dodgers to pull away after the visitors narrowed the gap to one run. Ryan Roberts had two hits and drove in two runs; he, Justin Upton and Willie Bloomquist all homered for the D-backs.
