Mostly Real Quotes

"I just said, hey, let's just get out, we'll deal with the score at the end of the inning. Tremendous job and he continued to pitch. We talk about one time through the order, he pitched more than one time through the order and continued to get ground balls. He kept them off-balance." - Chip Hale on Wagner

"I don't like him hitting 9th.  It messes with my feng shui." - Chip Hale on Ahmed

"He's just trying to be a little too perfect right now." - Chip Hale on Miller

"It's not easy to sweep anybody four games at the major league level, especially a team like that in this ballpark. I'm very proud of our guys. Guys kind of bonded." - Chip Hale on Bonding

Other DBacks News

Arizona Diamondbacks big road trip by the numbers - Turn back the clock, and some in the Phoenix area were concerned the Diamondbacks weren't going to be the team they were billed to be. This didn't look like a playoff team, with rough pitching, sloppy defense and a manager admitting defeats were on him.

Something is wrong with Shelby Miller - The Arizona Diamondbacks are without center fielder A.J. Pollock, one of the 10 best players in the National League last season. Zack Greinke has a 5.25 ERA and just one win in four starts. Paul Goldschmidt is hitting .237. Shelby Miller -- THE TRADE!!! -- has been awful and made his fourth consecutive poor start Thursday, walking five in two innings on his way to a second straight early exit. Of course, the Diamondbacks beat the Giants anyway, 6-2, as Tyler Wagner pitched five scoreless innings in relief to complete their first four-game sweep at AT&T Park.

PetSmart® and Arizona Diamondbacks Team Up to Set GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ Milestone for Most Dogs Attending a Sporting Event - Chase Field has gone to the dogs! After the successful launch earlier this month of the PetSmart Patio and additional PetSmart-sponsored permanent dog-welcoming facilities at Chase Field that have created the first-ever season-long dog-friendly ballpark in America, PetSmart, the Arizona Diamondbacks and Central Garden & Pet are cranking it up a notch - 1,000 - or 1,000 notches - by attempting to set a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the most dogs attending a sporting event.
