Those whom the gods wish to destroy, they first send to play a double-header in Cleveland, than a four-game set of extra-inning contests in Miami. That's how it goes, isn't it? That made a total of 31 innings played by the D-backs on consecutive days, tying the team record. Coincidentally, that was set on a previous trip to Florida in 2009, after a double-header on Wednesday combined to last 22 innings. This one is probably worse, however, as there was a flight from Cleveland to Florida between the two days.

Also safe to say that Bradin Hagens debut did not go as well as Andrew Chafin's. Hagens became the fourth Diamondback reliever in team history to get the loss in their major-league debut, following Vincente Padilla (1999), Chris Capuano (2003) and Ryan Cook (2011). At least Hagens did manage to retire a batter, which is more than can be said for Padilla or Cook, both of whom were charged with three earned runs. The good news for Hagens is, all three of the other debutant losers have gone on to satisfactory career, Padilla and Capuano playing for more than a decade, and Cook now an important cog in the Athletics' bullpen.
