Last Night's Game
Diamondbacks Bullpen Collapses in Eighth Inning Against Rockies
Someone, perhaps Dan Szymborski, said at the start of the year in reference to other teams that if you want to tank, the best way to do it without it being obvious is to assemble a bad bullpen. The Diamondbacks have now become exhibit A.

Braden Shipley gets to pitch in Coors Field tonight. Something will likely happen. Watch if you want. It should be over before Arizona State starts their game tonight, and Arizona's game should still be close. Counterpoint: Coors Field, so both the Sun Devils and Wildcats might have finished their games by the time the fifth inning is over.
