Diamondbacks Spring Training: Gameday Thread, #31, vs. Angels

New, 68 comments

Hope you enjoyed yesterday's off-day. The next one will be Sunday - MLB Opening Day! We've been alternating wins and losses since a week past Sunday: will the streak continue?

It's the last evening game of the year at Salt River Fields - I always wondered why the Cactus League don't play more games at night, when people aren't working and the conditions are generally more pleasant for unshaded spectators [at Sunday's game, we perched on the concourse, and watched the game from there, and that was a lot nicer than being on the lawn would have been!]. Maybe the electricity costs of lighting? Complaints from residential neighbors? I dunno. Anyway, this is your last chance: Friday and Saturday are evening games, but they're at Chase, which isn't the same thing at all - I hardly count those as "spring training," personally.

Here's tonight's Diamondbacks' line-up:

  1. Willie Bloomquist, SS
  2. Gerardo Parra, RF
  3. Martin Prado, 3B
  4. Aaron Hill, 2B
  5. Miguel Montero, C
  6. Paul Goldschmidt, 1B
  7. Jason Kubel, LF
  8. A.J. Pollock, CF
  9. Ian Kennedy P
    + pitchers Brad Ziegler, Heath Bell, J.J. Putz, Josh Collmenter
