"There's no excuses. You've got to perform no matter what it is. That's what I'm struggling with, just trying to find that rhythm. It's a whole different scenario for me."
"It was one of those at-bats where you definitely aren't trying to do too much. You've got bases loaded and one out. You want to just put the ball in play."
"In these type of games, where runs have been scored, in this ballpark, if you get a few guys on, something good can happen."
It Happened Last Night
The Diamondbacks twice put up three run rallies to come from behind, the second one coming in the top of the ninth off the Rockies' closer, John Axford. Multi-hit nights from Tomas (4), Lamb (2), and Ahmed (2), combined with a 2-run homer from Goldschmidt led the offensive outbursts.
After tweaking his back, Diamondbacks starter Jeremy Hellickson says the extra day of rest provided by Monday's off day should have him on the mound on schedule Saturday.
Bradley pitched a rehab outing for the Reno Aces on Wednesday night. The results were a mixed bag, but the highlight was that he walked no batter in his four innings of work.
The Diamondbacks first overall pick Dansby Swanson will be leaving Omaha with a bitter taste in his mouth. After winning it all last year, the Commodores fell short this season. The end of the College World Series means Dansby Swanson can now open negotiations to join the Diamondbacks.
Tony LaRussa and Dave Stewart have managed to shed nearly every big money contract give out by the Towers regime. Only Hill, Perez, and Ziegler remain, alongside inexpensive utility infielder Cliff Pennington and the ridiculously underpaid Paul Goldschmidt.
