New, comments

Record: 6-7 - Home: 2-2 - Road: 4-5

  • 2000: A Matt Williams single with one out in the 11th inning scored Jay Bell and gave Arizona a 4-3 victory over the Phillies in Philadelphia. The Diamondbacks had done all their scoring to that point in a three-run sixth, with Luis Gonzalez getting them on the board with an RBI single, and Williams following immediately with a two-run double. Tony Womack also had two hits for the visitors, while Randy Johnson had rare, shaky control, waking four in six innings, but held Philadelphia to one earned run, striking out ten. Dan Plesac got the W and Matt Mantei the Save for perfect relief innings.
  • 2005: The Diamondbacks pounded out 15 hits, but it wasn't enough for the win, on a day when Javier Vazquez and the bullpen struggled, Arizona losing 13-8 to the Cardinals in St. Louis. Luis Gonzales and Royce Clayton each had three hits, the latter including his 1,700th career hit and Chris Snyder hit his first career pinch-hit homer. Vazquez failed to retire any of the seven batters he faced in the third inning, being charged with nine runs in two frames, while Brian Bruney and Lance Cormier each allowed two runs in relief.
  • 2008: Dan Haren tossed his team-high 20th quality start in a 6-2 win over the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field. Haren worked eight innings, allowing two runs on seven hits and two walks, striking out nine batters. Stephen Drew extended his hitting streak to 16 games...Chris Snyder’s two-run homer got the Diamondbacks the lead, setting off a five-run fifth; it was immediately followed by another long ball, off the bat of Chris Burke, and Adam Dunn added a two-run single later in the frame. Stephen Drew, Chris Young and Haren each had two hits for Arizona.
  • 2011: Zach Duke picked up his last victory as a Diamondback, in a 5-3 win over the Mets at Chase Field. He came in to relieve Jason Marquis, who suffered a broken fibula in the fourth inning that would end his season. Arizona took the lead for good in the bottom of the sixth on a Henry Blanco double. Our catcher added some insurance in the eighth with a bases-loaded walk, though David Hernandez pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for the save. Duke allowed two runs on four hits over 2.2 innings, while Paul Goldschmidt enjoyed his first multi-hit game as a major-leaguer, going 3-for-5.
