Perhaps the tenth time will be the charm for Nuño. After all, the Diamondbacks actually won his ninth start for them, breaking new ground there, albeit waiting until after he had left the game to do so. With a 3.54 ERA in those nine games, you'd have though Vidal would have lucked into a win by this point, but an average of three runs per game scored by our offense has a different opinion on that topic. Still, we have Nolan Reinhold making his D-backs debut this afternoon (and for the benefit of GuruB: #thatsthejoke), so no force in the universe can stop us from powering to victory over the Rockies tonight.

After Classic TV at Chase Field last night, it's Classic Diamondbacks, with the team this evening wearing their throwback gear, and also staging a three-inning alumni softball game after tonight's contest. Have to admit, they do look kinda swanky:

We'll see if they bring the team - and Nuño in particular, good luck tonight!
