Diamondbacks Spring Training Gameday Thread, #26, vs. Padres

Running a little behind today, so not much time for more than a line-up. Can the Diamondbacks get back above .500 and extend the winning streak to four games?

This afternoon's game is being webcast through, so you'll be able to listen to the game. At least, if you're not like me, and have a computer with a busted sound-card, which can manage to beep, and that's about it... Here's this afternoon's Diamondbacks line-up.

  1. Gerardo Parra, CF
  2. A.J. Pollock, RF
  3. Martin Prado, 3B
  4. Aaron Hill, 2B
  5. Miguel Montero, C
  6. Paul Goldschmidt, 1B
  7. Jason Kubel, LF
  8. Cliff Pennington, SS
  9. J.J. Putz P
    + Heath Bell, David Hernandez, Andrew Barbosa, Conrad Flynn, Kaleb Fleck, Steve Garrison, Diogenes Rosario, Willy Paredes

Yep, that J.J. Putz starting today. Don't see that often. It's because scheduled starter Wade Miley worked a bullpen yesterday, so expect this one to be a long series of one and done. There are names at the back of that list which I'm not certain about: we had two players named Rosario playing in the minors for us last year, so I'm not certain which one is pitching: neither has appeared in a game this spring. I've gone with Diogenes, in part because I'm also hoping that Socrates Brito gets into the game as well, so we can head towards an all-philosophers lineup. You Kant go wrong there...
