This Day In Diamondbacks Baseball: September 6

Record: 1-11 - Home: 0-2 - Road: 1-9

  • 2002: Mike Fetters gave the Giants a walk-off 1-0 win in San Francisco, Reggie Sanders' one-out single in the ninth scoring pinch-runner Tom Goodwin from second with the game's only run. The Diamondbacks managed only one runner past first all night, putting two on with no outs in the seventh. However, a shallow fly and double-play ended the threat. Miguel Batista was excellent, pitching seven shutout innings on four hits and two walks for the visitors, but Kirk Rueter was even better for the Giants, allowing three hits over eight frames - neither was involved in the decision.
  • 2003. Another year, another walk-off loss in San Francisco, the score here being 5-4 to the Giants. This one was even more galling, as after allowing a lead-off single in the 11th, Matt Mantei then walked it all the way around to score with two outs, on his third base on balls of the inning. The Diamondbacks had fallen behind 4-1 after five, but came back to tie it on a two-run double by Luis Gonzalez in the seventh. He had two hits, but Steve Finley went 4-for-6 out of the lead-off spot. Curt Schilling allowed four runs on six hits and four walks over six innings.
  • 2005. Probably a good thing we're not playing today, as the only time we have won on this date was seven years ago, squeaking past the Pirates 4-2 in Pittsburgh, and it took 12 innings to do so. Javier Vazquez wobbled through six, allowing 12 hits but only two runs - the home team outscored Arizona 15-7, but were 1-for-11 with runners in scoring position. RBI singles from Chris Snyder and Royce Clayton in the 12th gave the Diamondbacks the lead, and Buddy Groom allowed a two-out single but secured the save. Conor Jackson had two hits.
  • 2011. The Diamondbacks held a two-run lead after seven innings, but the Rockies exploded for seven runs, all of them coming with two outs in the eighth, to win 8-3 at Coors Field. David Hernandez, Joe Paterson and Sam Demel took ten attempts to get the third out: they combined to allow seven hits, two walks and a hit batter in the frame, Colorado sending 13 to the plate. Starter Josh Collmenter deserved a better fate, having allowed one run over 6.1 innings, on five hits - he walked none and struck out four. Aaron Hill and Justin Upton each had two hits for Arizona.
